What case (if any) are you using for your Torch?

Old 9700 case works. I think CrackBerry guys say the 8300 cases should work too. It doesn't put the Torch into standby correctly due to the magnet location.

Bold 9700 Case fits like it was made for it! Except you dont have access to the USB/Charging port when it is in the case.

The 8900 and 8520 cases work to a liilte snug but works.

My bold 9700 case fits perfectly. HOWEVER, does anyone else experience the phone being "unlocked automatically" in this case, my phone unlock itself and starts dialing random #'s from phone book after staying in this case for a while...

Fit is not "snug".

The Torch is slightly shorter and narrower (width) than the Bold 9000.

The Torch is also slightly thicker than the Bold 9000.

Biggest difference is the width. So its a bit loose side to side on the Bold 9000 case.

So fit is not "snug" but there is no way it will fall out either.

Hope this helps.

I bought the OtterBox and am using the Bold 9000 case to carry it. It is tight, but will loosen up a bit.

Bought the AGF Premium Leather case at the AT&T store. It fits snugly. Not sure whether to put it in the case screen out or in. Sometimes it presses on the screen because when I pull the phone out, the "connections" screen is open. It seems to work fine, though. FYI, on Crackberry.com they have mini to micro adapters for $9.95 so we can all keep our old chargers.

Oddly enough, new USB to Micro cable are also $9.95.

I noticed a similar behavior with mine but it does not dial any thing. Just doesn't always lock.

Would anyone recommend a case made specifically for the Torch? I can't seem to find one of those.

I am also using my Bold 9000 case as the magnet will put the phone to sleep if the screen is facing the back. I have an Incipid feather ultra thin "case" on the Torch which adds about maybe 3mm to the width. I think it fits pretty well. Not snug, but not that much play either.

I bought the AGF GRT shell for the phone. I tend to like soft cases but none out yet and I can't imagine how they'd make one that will work with the sliding function of the phone. I don't like how the case makes the phone bigger than it actually is, but it'll do for now.

Default Sena 9700 Case?

Can anyone confirm if the Sena ultraslim case for the 9700 will fit the 9800 and activate the sleep function?

Thanks!

I think the AGF Premium leather case is nothing more than a hastily repackaged BB 8800 case. I went and looked at it and noted it had no specific branding on the package, not AT&T and not "9800." Then when I tried my Torch in the case, I noticed the case was about 1/4 to 1/2 taller than the Torch. Coincidentally, that's exactly how much taller my BB 8800 is over my Torch.

Probably going with a clear shield type protection if they don't come out with any TPU cases anytime soon.
