UPDATED: New Seidio Holsters Lack Magnet
Well, it appears that Seidio has quietly changed their holster designs for the worse, and since it appears Seidio won't say anything, I will. Holsters for the 9900/9930 and the 9850/9860 will not have the power saving magnet like previous holsters for BlackBerry devices did. This is according to both the sales rep I just spoke with and several people that have bought new holsters only to return them because they don't have the magnet.

What a huge disappointment. This decision renders one of the great features of the BlackBerry phones useless, and as a result, I will no longer buy Seidio holsters for any of my phones.

I would love to hear from Seidio as to why this bone-headed move was made, but I doubt I ever will.

UPDATE: Great news! Got a message from Seidio and they have heard the complaints. As a result, they are putting the magnet in the holsters from now on. So, once I know for sure the holsters have the magnet, I will reorder one for my 9930.

Yeah, seems like a really stupid omission.

They probably hired a consultant firm to analyze and tell them they could save $$ if the eliminated the magnet.
