whipped out my old OEM curve 8310 leather case today, and it works perfect!! other than being a little worn out.

puts it to sleep and makes all of the "in holster" setting work perfect!!!

im heading to ebay to get me a brand new one

I had an otterbox case and returned it... the poor thing is naked for now. Every case I tried on it seemed to mess with my screen lock button. Has anyone else had this problem?

Nope, my Otterbox is great and it just saved my bacon. I accidentally dropped by 9800 (in the case) from the top bleacher at a baseball game onto the concrete floor. I saw it fall, fall, fall, faaaaallll, fall and then bounce on the corner and when I eventually retrieved it, not only was everything working but the case wasn't even scuffed.

I bought the otterbox initially but the part that goes on the sliding part of the phone broke after a week, went back to the at&t store and they said that was happening a lot and i got a 2-part case again but this one, the part that goes on the sliding part of the phone clicks on 2 rails coming out of the other part.
Very nice feel and it doesn't come off at all. Much better than the otterbox

Who made the new case that you got? I am waiting for the otterbox as I had one on my Tour and it was great. Does the commuter case come with a belt holster? I can't seem to find one in the pictures..

The package has the AT&T logo and it is called AGF GRT SHELL, their oracle code is 75981, with it they should be able to show it to you, it is a better fit than the otterbox and $5 cheaper
This one has no belt holster.

I see this available now.

So, the top piece attaches to a rail as part of the bottom piece, correct?

How durable do you think this case is? Do you think after a fall that the rail or top part that attaches to the rail will get broken? What's the material like -- super sturdy?

I don't know if it will broke and when but the otterbox I had broke in my pocket. The cover of the sliding part attaches to it by a little plastic tab only so I went with this one instead.

....and, as I noted earlier in this thread, I bought Dark Purple Rubberized Protector Case for BlackBerry Torch 9800 by Beyond -- would have appeared to be a good buy, but aside from the top part occasionlly coming off, after just over a week, the top part where it attaches to the slider broke at two spots -- cheap plastic -- making it no longer attachable. Not recommended, even for $8.55 via amazon.com.

Thank you -- so, would you recommend it (thumbs up!), or do you think something better should come along?

I've only used two cases and this one seemed the best of those two but let us know how it goes for you when you buy one.

After waiting too long to get it I am very unhappy with the Otterbox. Even with a lot of fiddling with it, the phone acts screwy and locks up so that I have to do a battery pull. After several attempts (really wanted this to work) I gave up on it. Guess I will try something else....

I'm using the Seidio Innocase, after seeing the poor reviews on Otterbox I went back to Seidio. They worked well for my 8900 and I am using the screen protector and case for my Torch

I always had success with fortte flip cases and from the photos it seems like they have a good design for the torch.

Mine should arrive in a bit I'll keep you all posted.
