    Hey Guys

    I've been trying to read up on the forum about this but can't seeem to find an answer. I bought a AT&T torch on ebay and it didn't come with a holster. So I also ordered what I thought was a 9800 Holster. The phone fits well in the holster but the magnets don't line up. So even when I lock the phone when I go to slip it in, it unlocks. I'm assuiming all the other cases on ebay are the same as they say they're compatible with various bb. The CB store ones cost like $60 to send up to Canada and CB Canada store doesn't have any for a 9800. I did read that a storm holster will work. Is that true. Thanks for any advice in advance.

    I don't think the magnets line up with a Storm holster. Why does it cost so much to send to Canada? I guess everyone wants money.....

    I am sure the Blackberry OEM holster is or will be available in Canada, it is a great holster. It has been stated the Storm holsters do work.

    disapointing... Ya the holster is only $25 and shipping is like 30 something...kinda too much for just a holster

    I have heard some say that it does, but I could be wrong. You will have to wait for those using it to chime in.

    Yeah, they do line up. Or at least they do with the Storm pocket, so the holster shouldn't be any different.

    Okay, but why is the shipping so much? You live out in the sticks?

    Be careful with the ebay ones. That's what I got and the magnets don't line up. Make sure it specifically works on the 9800. If its compatible with the 9700 for example it likely won't work. Seems like the storm one might though.

    My OEM leather holster from my Bold 9000 fits perfectly and the magnets do their job. I don't think you can get a better holster for the Torch!

    Mine works just fine. That is weird. I had seen another post on another discussion about this where someone had that problem.

    Does the phone lock when you put it in the holster? Mine does...Maybe you have to reset your profiles to "lock in holster"?

    The magnet in my 9000 holster (the one that came with the 9000) works if I put my Torch in the case upside down. I'm going to continue to use it until the Torch OEM pocket case becomes available.

    I've seen the pocket cases (OEM leather type) on a few websites and they show shipping on September 11th.

    I got mine on Shop CB the day it was released on the site. No issues with my OEM leather swivel holster.

    Anyone notice that the holster is making fine scratches on the top chrome bezel ?
