Pros: Side case that puts the BB to sleep
This case was exactly what I wanted! I had been using a side loading case that did not support the sleeper function which was a pain. I can only get the BB to "sleep" when inserted in one direction, but that is no big deal. I quickly got used to it. The case is well made and a great value.
Strong, secure, inobtrusive

This does exactly what I need a Blackberry case to do, and has held up perfectly for the 3 months Ive had it. The magnetic closure is discreet, the fit is perfect, and the belt clip - - while narrow - - is solidly-attached and strong.
Just buy this one. Youll be happy.

Pros: NIce Italina leather and great craftsmanship
Cons: I really havent found one yet.
The sleeper mode works regardless of weather the screen is facing away from you or towrads you in the holster. I was a bit concerned about the clip but that was quickly done away witih. Nice leather and inside is plush treatment for you BB. I dont even realize it it there unlike the other holster that was a vertical one.
You must put the BB in with the screen towards the front of the case when wearing it in the right side.

Pros: Sleek, simple, good clip, good magnet closure, sleeper magnet
Cons: Sleeper magnet only works in one position
This is a terrific side case for the curve!! I prefer side cases over vertical cases because theyre less obtrusive, and they expose less of the phone to damage from bumping into things. Its also easier to sit down with one and not have it get in the way.
This case is excellent. It feels sturdy, but its not overdone, and not too complicated in look or function. The top closes with enough magnetic force to keep it shut, but its still easy to reopen. The phone slides in and out with relative ease, but is snug enough not to pop out on its own in any way. The belt clip is very firm, so it wont slide on your belt or come off. It also has a nice little lip though so its easy to put on your belt, even with tension.
I did try the case while the phone had the Blackberry silicone skin on. It fits, but its snug enough that its a bit tough to get in/out of the case. Im using it mostly without the silicone skin.
The only drawback in my mind is that the sleeper magnet only works when the phone is in one particular orientation within the case. This is a very minor inconvenience, you just have to put it back in the same way each time.
