In Short

"Protects your BlackBerry Curve and saves you battery life - a win-win "

Should I Buy?

"Those who are on their BlackBerry smartphones 24/7 will find the OEM holster a welcomed addition to their smartphone accessory arsenal"



The OEM holster for the BlackBerry Curve 9360 Is one of those cases that only a small portion of people will use. But if you are one of those people, you will certainly value the use of a holster for your BlackBerry. The OEM holster case has three main features. The first feature is the protection it provides for your BlackBerry smartphone. The second is the magnetic device locking feature. The built in device locking feature allows your BlackBerry smartphone to be placed in a sleep mode or change notification tones while holstered. The third feature would be the quick access. When your BlackBerry is placed into the holster and on your hip the amount of time it takes to check that important BBM is drastically reduced. Now the time reduction isn't a whole lot, but BlackBerry people like to get things done! and this will help you do that.

The front of the case features a magnet latch to secure your BlackBerry Curve at any angle. The case as a whole is made of faux leather, with high grade stitching to ensure a long life. The case also allows the BlackBerry smartphone to protrude slightly from the top the case which allows the LED light to be fully visible.

The back of the OEM holster is quite simple. The back features a 360-degree swivel holster with a belt lock. The belt lock eliminates any worry of the case becoming loose and falling off your belt.

The Good

A sturdy case with innovation all-around. The OEM case not only saves your battery, but also saves you time and eliminates fumbling around for your BlackBerry smartphone.

The Bad

I found that the OEM holster attracted dirt and fingerprints fairly easily. As well, the case seemed to scratch even with a lightest of scrapes.

The Bottom line

The OEM holster for the BlackBerry Curve 9360 is a definite must have for those power users. The case keeps your BlackBerry smartphone by your side no matter what you may be doing. While the OEM holster does show dirt and grease easily, a quick wipe with a cloth reveals an almost new holster. The OEM holster for the BlackBerry Curve 9360 can be found in for $19.95.

BlackBerry people do, and the BlackBerry OEM holster helps you accomplish this. The case features a magnetic device sleep mechanism, belt locking design, and an attractive and stylish exterior. Definitely worth the purchase.

No really that's not just snark - I've noticed that culturally like "fanny packs", hip holsters are the sort of things that here in the UK only accountants called Nigel are likely to use and you will mocked without remorse (either to your face or behind your back) if you use one.

What's it like in other countries?


I use a clear case, nothing fancy.


In my circles (Live in Canada btw) we focus more on protecting what we need, and not worrying too much about what others think of our holster/case.

If anyone I knew thought the same about the OEM holsters than they do about crocs or fanny packs, I haven't heard anything. (shrugs)


I'm just wondering how a case that's called "BlackBerry Leather Holster" can be made out of something besides...leather?! Oh, and I use a hip holster (made of real leather) for my 9930, and my name is most certainly not Nigel. Actually I kind of like the name Nigel, too bad there are no more kids in my future, maybe we could have added an accountant to the world! :)


Who the heck cares what a holster looks like? My tattered, abused 9700 original holster does just what it needs to do for my 9900 when using an extended battery. I just might get another one, because the extended battery is a wealth godsend!!! :)

And it won't fit the slim holster.
