    I am going to be in need of a case for my Incredible. I have read that the leather ones with the flap that operate with a magnet in order to keep the flap closed can damage some phones. I am currently looking at a few holsters/leather cases (on VZ's site) that use a magnet to keep the flap closed. Can anyone comment on whether or not these cases will have any adverse effects on the INcredible? Thanks

    I've been using the Incipio Bond Street Holster (for iPhone) since I got it on Thursday with no adverse effects.

    just make sure if you are getting a case with a magnet flap, that you stay away from the cases with exposed metal magnets or metal buttons that can mar your screen.

    Im sure some people dont have problems with these types of cases, but evertime i heard my previous phones, slip into my case and the metal tab hits the screen, i cringe..

    I'm using an old BB holster (with magnet) with no adverse effects.
    In fact, I think I'm just going to buy the silicone case and keep using this holster.

    I'm using the HTC branded leather holder with two magnets sewn into the lining of the flap. No adverse effects whatsoever :)
