If you follow me on twitter (@crackberrykevin), you'll know that last week I broke my Torch. I had in my front right jeans pocket, and somehow on the car ride between my home and office it died. It won't power up, swapping batteries doesn't help, it won't take a charge (the red light won't even come on when plugged in) and it won't connect to USB. The thing is D E A D.
Now, this shouldn't have happened - AT&T doesn't include any kind of case in the box so you know the sturdy-built Torch should be able to take at least some abuse, but I do know that if I had been using a case or holster with my Torch it would still be working right now. And if you're looking for an all-business carrying solution for the Torch, I'd recommend the BlackBerry Torch 9800 Leather Holster.
As far as OEM BlackBerry holsters go, the Torch holster is definitely among the best I have seen. The leather is nice, the look is nice, and the ratcheting locking holster seems pretty strong and durable. Of course it features a built-in magnet, so it works with In / Out of Holster profile settings. It retails for $29.99, but you can get it for less at ShopCrackBerry.com. The user reviews on this one have been nothing but positive as well, so if you want a straight up quality holster for your BlackBerry Torch this is definitely one to check out.
