    A couple of questions: Is the case an OEM Blackberry? Is it for a Torch?

    If it's not an OEM case, chances are it may not even have a magnet other than the one for the flap. If its not for a Torch, the magnet may be in the wrong place.

    The Torch needs a magnet that is placed right in the center of the case. I have a Torch 9800 but presently use a horizontal leather case for a Bold (which fits quite well BTW) but the Bold requires 2 magnets that are placed away from the center. I slit the inside lining and inserted a small magnet (from an old case) positioned in the center facing the display. It works quite well.

    Oh one other thing, check your phone to make sure it "sleeps" when a magnet is placed near the center of the display, just to make sure it is not the phone setting. The magnet on the flap of your case will trigger it.
