    Boyfriend is sick for one of these cases. Would anyone know if there are any drawbacks to this? Placing magnets to electronic devices can't be always a good thing.

    If someone can suggest a good site where one could order one of these things, that ships to Canada, and doesn't require a month's wages to do so, plz let me know

    Thanks much!

    You could get the hard rubberized case and holster from seidio. It has a magnet in the holster. And a magnet will not hurt your bb

    I bought a regular belt clip from one of those kiosks in the mall and used electric tape to tape a magnet to the backside of it. You can't even see it and it works great. All for $5.... Yea I'm cheap LoL.

    Actually, the magnet is a BlackBerry's friend. The magnet cause the phone not to have fun unattended in the holster or case. It's a preventive measure.

    Personally, I started to go with a cheapie case; but since I've decided I'm going to keep my Pearl for a while, I ordered 2 custom cases from a different site. The cost was about $100 for both. Hopefully they'll be worth the wait.

    Curious to know what you end up getting for your boyfriend.

    Are we talking about the case for $9.97 @ walmart? The horizontal case?

    If so, is this the type of case that will put the phone in standby mode when holstered?

    This is what the BF wants.
