    I know there is one for the Blackberry curve 8300. Is there one for the this curve? Makes it sleep when holstered. Will the 8300 or 8800 holster's magnet work with this one?
    When phone placed in the holster it makes the phone lock anc sleep

    Yep.. they are here:- http://shop.crackberry.com/blackberr...medium=content

    The plastic pouch that comes with the 8900 does the same thing, and there is also a leather version of the pouch.

    The search button is your friend... try it someday

    they had it at the t-mobile store, it was 14.99. But, I could not figured out how to turn it on while on the holster. I do not want to have to remove it every time I need to use it.

    I have the 8300 curve leather holster and the magnet does not work as the sensor on the 8900 is lower. Ifound a proper holster though designed for the 8900 now so it is available if you go looking

    I use the OEM leather holster that I purchased for my 8320. If I slide it in bottom first face down will put to sleep in 1-2 seconds and the stiffer back facing the face of 8900 will not depress any of buttons. Also has slot for trackball. Seems to work well.

    I just ordered the 83xx series OEM pouch from ebay. Kind of tired of this crappy 8900 pouch that's too tight and drains battery.

    Hopefully the 83xx pouch will do the trick without being too loose.

    I posted a picture of mine on the link aristile posted. It does put my phone to sleep. It's a horizontal leather holster and I like it.

    i prefer the sleeve that it comes with to make it sleep and save batter, which i notice this phone loves to eat battery life. one thing i dont like is how the top part of the phone is exposed.

    what i use.

    Your battery is draining faster because you are using that sleeve. Try for a few days without it, I think you will pleasantly surprised.

    I ordered the Seidio Horizontal Leather holster in hopes that i'll be able to keep my oem bb skin on and that it will put it in sleeper mode. I'll report back once I get it.

    how would a sleeve make a berry drain faster than open air, unless it was pushing on a button or something? Clarify please?

    Pick up the OEM leather sleeve then. I've been using that for around 2 weeks now, in combination with .133 OS and moderate to heavy use I get around 4 1/2 days life out of a single charge.

    I couldn't find a decent (read: cheap enough for me) priced 8900 holster in Canada (OEM) and a seller I found was selling them but it turned out to be an 8300 case. I didn't mind much as he let me try the case with him.

    I have read many people saying the 8300 holster doesn't work. This is partially true.

    As noted, the proximity magnet on the front of the case is set higher? So if the screen is facing outward, it doesn't work.

    Also as noted, if you put the screen in towards the back of the holster, it sleeps perfectly. I tried depressing keys and it was unresponsive in that positon. So all's good. My assumption is there's a larger magenet on the back of the holster? not too sure

    Only consequences about using it this way are: the indicator light is hidden, and it doesnt quite look right (since the top of the 8900 is angled).

    When the OEM 8900 holsters are a bit more widely available, I'll be getting one and selling my 8300 one.

    I'm using the hybrid OS 152/133. And I hardly get one day out of a single charge. I take it off the charge at around 11am and its almost dead by 10pm. I use the OEM sleeve. Does anyone have any tips.(also wi-fi is hardly on...and the phone is moderatly used with limited apps running.)

    Do a quick search on ebay for "OEM Synthetic Leather 8900 Holster". You can easily find one for around $15. That's the one I use .
