Just look at your profiles... In Holster/out of Holster... you will love this little Magnet (if you don´t put credit cards in you BB cases;) )

Hi Rolo.

It's called a "sleeper" magnet. When it's in contact with your BB, it shuts the screen off, etc, so as to conserve battery.

And as to the credit card thing, it's been discussed and tested ad nauseum...there's nothing to worry about...the little magnet in any of these cases won't do anything to your CCs.

Cheers.

Saying that, got a 7130v delivered earlier, and the pouch supplied fits perfectly, though the phone has to be upside down to make the sleeper magnet work, it's rather stupid, as if i put it in with screen facing front bottom down, the screen goes off just as it begins to slip into the pouch, and then comes back on again when its fully in the case.

that may be true...but it does knacker your car parking tickets with a bar code as I have found on a couple of occasions.
