    Case not functional, puts Pearl in sleep mode

    Advertisement



    I have a case that is really not a holster. It is a true case to be used while the pearl is enclosed in it.
    The problem is the case has the sleep mode magnet in it. So I put the Pearl in the case to use it, and it shuts itself into sleep mode making the case unusable. I tried to block the magnet by placing a small piece of cardboard in the case, yet it still goes to sleep. I can not find a setting on the phone to remedy the issue. Any ideas?

    What case is this? Is it the pouch case from blackberry?

    If it's in the case, why would you want to use it???

    If you want to use it then leave it out of the case. Or am I missing something here?

    This is an aftermarket case designed to protect the pearl while it is being used. It is designed with the correct cut outs to allow the phones operation, but the sleep magnet does not allow the phone to operate.

    Sounds like the aftermarket manufacturer didn't think that one through. The sleep magnet is doing what it is supposed to do. If they cut the case design to allow keyboard access that makes no sense.

    cant you just go in to options-security-general and change the setting when in holster to off? or did you already try that.

    isn't the purpose of the magnet was to put it in sleepmode (standy by mode)??? or do you not want it to do that?


    if its the latter then there was a thread that someone tells oyu how to take that magnet out

    check it out

    This option is for locking / unlocking the device via a password.

    Yep, that is the issue. A nice case with screen protection and keyboard / trackball access and no way to use it.
