    I'm coming to the Droid from a BB Curve and was wondering if there was a pocket holster/pouch similar to the OEM one. I'm not much for belt carry and I need a slim pouch to fit on my pocket.

    Any good holsters that also have a pouch for an extra SD card? Plan to get a 32mb card, but would like to keep the 16mb one around for extra storage.

    What would be GREAT is if there was one with a magnet like the Blackberry, so it could come out of sleep mode instantly when removed from the holster.

    I am a Blackberry Storm refugee and picked up my Droid on Friday. Love It. Hate the Verizon leather pouch clip on holster. Save your money and shop around.

    One thing I thought was interesting is that when I insert my Droid into my Storm case it senses the case and goes into "Connected to multimedia station" mode. When I lay it on top of the Storm case it goes into "Connected to Car Dock" mode. Apparently the Droid uses some of the same holster magic as Blackberry does.

    I'm using the pouch that came with my G1. You can find them on eBay. Search for OEM G1 Pouch. Not fancy but a nice fit.

    It depends on which way you put the Droid in the BB holster whether it goes into Dock or Car mode. I have been trying to find a decent holster all weekend but anything with a magnet activates one of the modes and drains the battery (I posted that in the Tips thread). I finally settled on a generic one from Target and it seems to be working great until I find something better. It is "Just Wireless" for SmartPhones and ran $15. It is the open top style but still holds it nice and snug.

    I performed a magnetectomy on my "Blackberry holster used w/ Voyager" in anticipation of droid arrival.

    Or should that be the "Les Common inspired by BWSmith" procedure?

    Magnet wasn't hard to find. :)

    .75 cm dorsal incision placed in the holster, combined w/ some needlenose and some wriggling.

    Scar will be invisible to passersby.

    I intend to carry a Phantom'ed or Zagg'd (or maybe both/hybrid?) phone in this holster, and don't want it committing power suicide.

    Now I just need to get the dratted device. Is it tomorrow yet? Is it?

    How is the fit inside of the Storm case? Because if it is pretty good, I'm going to look into making a program to go into/out of sleep mode instead of having it go into car dock (or multimedia dock) mode.
