    Thumbs down Beware of Cheap Ebay leather cases

    I picked up a cheap leather horizontal pouch on Ebay that has a magnetic flap on it and discovered that the magnet in the flap puts my Droid X in Car Dock mode.
    Took me a while to figure out why it was so hot every time I had it in the case for an hour or so.
    I didn't pay that much for it and thinking about taking the magnet out of the flap and replacing it with velcro.
    I suspect ANY case that has a magnetic closure on it will do this.
    Retirement, Its a tough job but someone has to do it

    Maybe, but I have seen the same case on Amazon for twice the price.
    I was just looking for a temporary case until some of the better case mfgrs came out with decent products and only paid $4.50 for it delivered.
    I have a car dock plus the multimedia dock and nether will accept the phone with any type of shell case on it.

    One of the reasons I will not trust a battery or charger from Ebay. Just seems worth it to pay more for trusted brands.
