Torch OEM Leather Case Falling Apart
I know I've seen threads where they talked about the flap on the OEM Torch leather case separating. Now I'm noticing parts of the main body of the case separating too! (where it's not stitched) I think this is ridiculous... is this covered under a warranty for the case? I don't think I should have to pay for a new one after I only had this case for a few months... and I don't even treat it rough.

Contact your carrier and as them. I don't think that manufactures them directly, they are outsourced.Samsung Galaxy SIII

I bought mine at telus when I picked up my Torch. The lining began to delaminate after about 6 weeks. I took it in, they replaced it. Check back with your carrier if you bought it there. (All they can say is no.) ~ecm

Yup, my first one basically fell apart one day. The clip came off the case and even before then the leather seems were badly busting up. Luckily for me, I paid the $9 Insurance from The Source. Happy as I am now, I only took the insurance so the dude would stop heckling me.. thank god!
How is it possible for there to be so many cases falling apart? There has to be something that RIM can do about this. Their old style cases were much stronger. I don't want to keep buying cases.
How do I even get in contact with RIM? I can't find a phone number. lol

Only 8 months and really falling apart. Best Buy said that this was a known problem. BB has now started selling a better case that has stitching all around the closure tab as well as around the opening. Previously both of which were only glued together.
