Every BlackBerry I've had has come with a warning about the potential of exceeding radion frequency exposure standards as follows:
When you wear the BlackBerry device close to your body, use a RIM approved
holster with an integrated belt clip, or maintain a distance of 0.59 in. (15 mm)
between your BlackBerry device and your body while the BlackBerry device is
transmitting. Use of body-worn accessories, other than RIM approved holsters
with an integrated belt clip, might cause your BlackBerry device to exceed radio
frequency exposure standards if the accessories are worn on your body while
the BlackBerry device is transmitting.
I decided to purchase a BlackBerry brand Transform Shell case for my new Z10. I figured since it's BlackBerry brand and BlackBerry approved it would provide the protection noted as important above. However, from reading the details above it seems the protection is on provided via a belt clip on holster only. Seems ludicrous that BlackBerry would expressly warn customers of the danger then provide branded accessories that do not offer protection. I'm hoping I'm wrong and the safety is built into all BlackBerry brand cases including the Z10 Transform Shell. Any ideas?

Thanks for the feedback Teaboy1748, I thnk the difference is there's a magnet in the actual clip to offset it. I rarely have the phone to my head but wanted the comfort of the protected case. Guess is safety or cool case. Therein lies the decision!
