    Magnets and the Storm

    Advertisement



    I got a holder for my truck. It holds the windshield with a suction cup, and comes with a steel sticker to stick on the battery door and a magnet on the holder. As soon a I get the magnet close to the phone, the screen shuts off. Is that normal?? Does anyone have anything that holds the phone while in the car?? Thanks

    the blackberrys have a magnet sensor that puts your phone in standby mode.so the holder won't work if you want to operate your berry from it.

    Yeah Meeko, there's a magnet switch inside of the phone. When you put it into a holster or pouch with a magnet it puts it to sleep. You may want to think of a new way to mount the device.

    Did not know that. So my phone is "sleeping" while it is in my holster, that is how it knows it is in the holster. First BB for me but I have had PDAs and smartphones, and these things are getting smarter everytime I buy a new onw. Thanks for your replies.

    you still get calls and can take it off the mount when you receive the phone call though. And save battery to boot.
