It really depends. A magnet inside a case will tell a BlackBerry to go into sleep mode, a great power saving feature.

A strong enough magnet could, in theory, erase data.

The only way that a magnet could erase data that I know of is if it is on a media that is magnetic in nature. Of course I suppose that a big enough magnet could do something but I would think that it would have to be HUGE! In general the magnet thing was based on an issue with PC's due to the magnet disks they use.

I would feel pretty confidant that if it is the case that came from htc then the magnet is ok to use. pretty useful actually to stick it to the fridge. should be easier to keep track of that way.
