    I've only priced the holsters from T-Mobile and Cingular.... get it from T-mo... much cheaper (19.99 and 29.99 respectively). I'm glad I have mine...

    My holster from BlackBerry was only $24.95. Which one did you buy that was $40? I have the lambskin leather holster, and love it. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Re: the BB leather case

    sleep mode is the point! gives you the options in holster/out of holster for all your alerts.

    but $40? got mine from t-mo for $20 usd. even figuring cnd doesn't work out that much or have a missed huge shift in the exchange rate?!

    He may be including the cost of shipping. But ripped off? No. Different sites, different prices. But since he isn't replying, who knows?~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Okay. You have the same one I got. It's a great holster, and well worth the money. Being as you are Canadian, you'll end up paying more no matter who you buy from in the US. It's nice looking, protects your Pearl, and saves your battery with the sleep mode. Handy way to attach it to whatever you want to carry it on. I usually just throw it in my purse, instead of clipping to my my pants or whatever. You got a good holster. Enjoy it!

    Is it the exact same holster? I was in Cingular store yesterday getting one of these and when she rang me up and told me it would be 32.xx after tax, I literally said "Dubya Tee Eff?! No thanks." and left.

    You can get totes at Walmart for $4. Hello Kitty store has em for under $10, and in several styles. Kiosk at West Valley Mall has a good selection too, and prices end up being same as/cheaper because you aren't paying those inflated shipping costs. Target has a nice selection too. Totes are okay, but the holster is so much nicer. Saves battery too. I just mailed all my totes to Suzzy.
