    Question Where does the magnet need to be?

    I need a new case.

    I didn't see where this was answered specific to the Torch, but where does the magnet need to be located to put the Torch to sleep?

    The one I purchased was a generic one and the magnet is obviously in the wrong place as my Torch doesn't sleep nor does it activate the holster functions.

    I don't want to make the same mistake twice when I get another one. Even some of the ones listed in the Crackberry store that say they work with the Torch the reviews say they don't.

    However, neither do I want to spend major $$$$ if there is a generic case with the magnet in the proper place (or I could move it there .

    You can take any magnet (well, assuming it's not completely inert) and slide it along the body of the phone until your screen goes blank.

    It is in the mid-section of the screen.
    One way to test is use the magnetic flip of your case to slide along the phone and you will find that out.

    Thanks everyone.

    I tried the magnet test and it worked like a charm. Magnet is dead center in the back. No recognition from the same spot in the front.

    Now I know I don't have to buy a new case, I'll just mod the one I bought at a considerable savings.

    Now where did I put that Exacto knife .....

    Default Slipped magnets

    My case ceased to put my Torch 9810 to sleep.

    I only noticed this when my battery began draining quicker.

    Seems that the front and rear magnets slipped to the bottom of the case. I was able to bring them back to center screen through the inner fabric and glue them in place with some hobby glue in a hypodermic.
