    I'm having a custom leather shop make me a carrying pouch for my BB. It has a REAL belt loop, not those clips that always disengage or break loosing your phone in the process. I had been using a bar phone and found it to fit in one of those biker cigarette cases. I contacted the shop (Lutz Leather) who made me a custom tool roll out of harness leather a few years back to see if they could make me a larger case to fit the BB Bold 9900. I added a half inch to the length, width, and depth of the phone so it's easy to get out of the pouch when I told them the dimensions I wanted. They are going to make it for me.

    Just wondering how the cases sold here switch the phone into sleep mode? Be nice to incorporate it in this case?

    They use a strategically placed magnet sewn into the case/pouch. You can probably have lutz add that feature to the case as well.

    Where do they place the magnet and how large is it?

    Chop up an old 9900 holster and have a look.

    Probably be able to use the same magnet as well.

    *depending on how attached you are with the oe holster.

    I'm waiting for the phone to arrive on Tuesday. Is a case shipped with it? I'm getting it through T-Mobile.

    Yes.

    I have two 9900's O2 & Vodafone. Both came with holsters and all the Bold videos I've seen come with the holsters.

    Be careful with the case. The one that comes with the TMO 9900 will scratch your battery door. It did mine and I'm not happy about it.
