    The last Blackberry that came with a holster was the Bold 9000. I'm not sure if the Torch included the holster, but both the Bold 9700 and 9780 didn't come with it. As this is the Flagship phone, any clue if the holster is included.

    Thank you.

    My VZW 9630 and 9650 both did. Is it up to the carrier?

    I don't think it is packaged by the carrier. Its packed in a certain way, as far as I know.

    Most AT&T phones come packaged in a cheap AT&T box! RIM is not putting their phones in an AT&T box. In this case they are supplied in bulk to the carrier. This is not the case for all carriers as some choose, I am sure at extra cost, to sell in the RIM suppled box.

    Each carrier makes the choice of what is included in the box. Some will get a sleeve, some will have holster while others will not have either.

    Ditto. I'd prefer to have the "pocket" style case over the holster any day.

    AT&T Torch came without a holster. I simply used the 9700 holster.
    Other than that, I like nekkid.

    Stop it! Just hearing the word "nekkid" from you . . . . .

    Guess the carriers are trying to keep the costs down and sell more of their accessories. Buy your case from any where except the carrier as they charge $30-$40 for what you can get for $20 anywhere else.

    I usually prefer silicon cases but I recently started using a plastic rubberized slip case that comes with a similar holster. I usually use daydeal.com to get all my stuff.

    I hope it comes with a holster. That's my method of choice for carrying any BB!

    I figured this was the case as I have had quite a few VZW boxes over the years.

    I hope so, the OEM holsters are and have always been my favorite.

    I can hope for AT&T to include a holster, but we don't even get direct access to things like bridge or BB maps! The 9000 I think was the last one from them with any real extras.

    In India, the Bold-2 9700 and Bold-3 9780 BOTH came/comes with Original BB Leather Holsters (Black for Black Bold & White for White Bold).

    My experiences with traditional style blackberrys (Curve 8330 & Tour 9630) such as this one have come with a holster. This being a business style phone, I would think the same would be true. Here's hoping for a holster.

    Not very experienced then are we. Other than the 9630 and 9650 what Verizon BlackBerry has included a holster?

    Verizon typically has a larger MicroSD card too. AT&T gives the sucky arse 2GB cards where as Verizon gives the 8GB to 16GB cards.

    How many people would actually use the holster if RIM included it with the phone? My guess is most people haven’t found their latest efforts especially appealing and the vast majority hasn’t even taken them out of the plastic.

    Would anyone rather have a sleeve included? Something like RIM supplied with the 8330. Personally, I won’t be putting anything on mine.

    I personally don't like the holster. It's just too big and bulky looking. I'd rather prefer the one pocket pouch. I am with T-Mobile and my Bold 9700 came with a holster and my Bold 9780 came with a one pocket pouch. Hopefully the 9900 will come with the one pocket pouch, that would be nice.

    It would be really nice if vzw were to give a choice of blackberry accessory with the purchase.........If we are going to dream of an imminent release of the bold we might as well go all the way
