    Pearl doesnt come w/ Holster but still has the sensor

    Advertisement



    So i still have my 7105t and its holster... the other day i decided to place my bb (8100) into the 7105t holster. ofcourse the 7105t's holster is way too big, BUT i noticed that the 8100 went dark as soon as i placed it in the holster, then lit right up when i took it out. so my thing is... do we think that blackberry/RIM is going to be releasing some kind of holster later on? if so why didnt the jerks add it as an accessory when it was purchased? if not why even have the technology that senses the holster? and while we're at it.. why do they call them apart-ments... when they are all together?!

    They want to make more money by 1) not having the additional cost of including a holster, and 2) selling you a holster as an accessory.

    That sucks because holsters are expensive when they're nothing complex either lol

    You could always buy an aftermarket holster. It may not be much cheaper, but it does negate RIM's little gambit, if that is their thinking. Sorry, I have a naturally subversive mind.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ T-Mobile has a leather pouch that is made specifically for the Pearl. It also has the built in magnet to shut off the light on the Pearl when it is out into the pouch.

    I see that RIM plans to release a pouch/case and silicone skins. Check http://www.shopblackberry.com

    Does anyone know where the sensor is? I want to be able to shut the screen off without having to use the holster.

    Hello All,

    The sensor is the two 'copper' pieces on the lower back of the phone.
    placing a magnet next to them causes the BB LCD to turn off and also the profiles can change (assuming you modify them, ex. diff ringer or just vibrate when in holster)

    I 'mickey moused' my own by placing a small magnet on the lower inside of a generic slide in pouch i bought from best buy for $3 (= works great and it is a little bit shorter so I can grip the BB from the sides and take it out of the pouch and I can see the LED to see if I got a new message, IM, text, etc...depending on the color.

    Im very pleased with my bootleg pooch.

    I'm new but as soon as I figure out how to post a pic i will

    sepudo Welcome to Pinstack.

    And thanks for the info and ideas. As to posting Picks, I'm not sure it works until you reach a certain number of posts, but try the Go Advanced button when you post and look to see if there is an Attachment Manager area below the Reply entry area. If there is use that to attach images.
