I used the 1/4" washer magnet that came from the RIM 72XX Hydrofoam case and the center of the magnet is placed exactly 7/8" up from the bottom of the case on the backside. It works perfectly there for the 8700. I also made the front convinience key a "keyboard lock" button, in case it hits on the way down while sliding the phone into the case. Any slim, strong magnet would work though -- and I glued it on using Lepage contact cement. I have been using it this way for a month and all is solid and perfect.
Edit: Sorry -- should have also indicated that it was placed dead center from side to side of the case at 7/8" up from the bottom outside edge
