Does anyone know if using a BB belt holster that has that magnetic flap to keep it closed will affect the touchscreen on the Motorola Droid?
Won't affect the touchscreen but might put you in car or home mode if the magnet is in the right place...

I have played with the magnetic pouches and holsters with my Droid. They definitely put it into Car or Multimedia mode. I don't think that part is harmful, however if you jiggle the holster around a little you will see that the Droid moves around enough to cause the Car or Multimedia mode to stop and reactivate which turns the display on - I believe in the long term this will affect battery life.
I haven't found an idea solution yet.
Definitely would not use one with a magnet. Because of that, I've been on a mission to find the perfect holster. I wanted something that would slide in vertically and quality made. Couldn't find anything labeled specifically for the Droid, but I did find this Sena case for the iphone.

It fits great and is really well made. Good quality leather with a very nice soft interior. Holds the Droid nice and snug. All I need to add now is the Zagg Invishield on the screen.
I already had a case with a magnet in it for my Blackberry before I got the Droid. I just carefully cut the magnet out of the flap from the inside, put two pennies where the magnet was for weight, and then took piece of strong tape to hold the pennies in and for two cents have a case that won't activate the docking or car modes.
