    I just bought a OEM Blackberry 8900 holster and I am having problems with it. If I put it in a little it will go to sleep, but if I push it all the way down it wakes up and stays awake. I have set it to lock when in holster. Someone told me that the holster needs to "break in" before it will work properly.

    Is it the issue with the holster itself? I am thinking of returning it but before I do I wanted to know from you guys.

    Thanks

    Leather needs to be stretched out a bit by use.

    There should be a magnet in the case which controls the sleep function. It appears that your magnet is working ok. Sounds like the tight leather might be pressing on a key and keeping your Berry awake.

    If you search around, you will find that this is a known issue and RIM is aware of it. I would suggest a third party case.

    I would say yes. I purchased a nice OEM BB pouch on eBay for $8.00 that has the sleeper magnet and a belt clip and it has worked great since day one.

    I have a similar problem with my new BB8900 in 2 different BB pouches: an old one (vertical) for BB8820 and a new one (horizontal) which is supposed to work for both 8900 and 9500.
    It's hard to believe that it has anything to do with tightness, since the BB8820 case is a loose fit for the 8900, and the 8820 locks fine in it. However, the 8820 is very hard to get into the 9500 case, even though it's about the same size as a 9500, and also doesn't lock in it.

    Might be hard to believe but that's the results we found.

    Yup. If you notice, the case actually hits down the left (i think) alt key, that slowly drains battery also. its too bad really. Its a nice case.
