    Question Why does my BB default to Bookmarks when removed from holster?

    Advertisement



    I have had this 8700c for about a week now, and every time I remove it from the holster, it is on the Bookmarks screen. This is not critical, but it is a minor annoyance. I have been through the settings and don't see any way to turn this off. Any suggestions?

    Are you sure you're not pressing a convienence button by accident, or something like that?

    ...this is strange. Try a reset, pulling the battery out while it's on...

    I use my 8700g in a book-type case that fits my pocket but doesn't have the smarts. I have moved the keyboard lock icon to top left (Alt-move application) so I just activate before I close the cover. So in your case what happens if you activate keyboard lock beforehand, then holster and then remove again? Does the device still default to Bookmarks?

    Or you can press 'K' to activate the keyboard lock. I am guessing that you are hitting one of your convienence buttons tho. At least that's what it sounds like.

    I appreciate the key lock comment, but that actually creates more steps than I have right now having to escape out of bookmarks.

    Apparently it is the convenience button on the face. It defaults to the Bookmarks page, and I guess my new holster is pressing it as I remove the BB (I just got the RIM leather swivel holster a few days ago).

    Or it could be the "B" key. It also opens the Browser.

    Hope this helps

    I have my 8700c set to auto lock when holstered. It's still more keypresses than hitting the escape key to exit whatever app you have mapped to the convenience key but I guess it's personal preference thing.
