    If your get a magnet and run it along your phone you will find the area the reed switch is located. Quite weird turning on and off and no buttons being pressed. Excellent idea though

    Its just a magnetic switch basically.. Its like my car. Ive installed a keyless entry by either remote or with a magnetic switch hidden on the door. Ive cut a hole in the door that was then filled with a piece of lexan and then the the door was repainted. The switch then hidden behind the lexan. All i do now is either use my remote or wave the magnet over the hidden spot then the door unlocks.

    Yep, there is a magnetic sensor under the keyboard. Any case or pouch with a magnet will work. Just wave a refrigerator magnet over the bb and that will make it work too.

    Driftor, Sweet door!
