    Does the Pearl have a magnetic "sleep" function like every other BB? Just wondering, haven't seen anything about it and I'm doubting it since it doesn't ship with a case.

    7105t holster works perfectly and oddly fits the pearl without it being loose.good ol' elasticity. i'm currently using it till i can get a skin from shieldzone.

    So that would solve the issue of the trackball and not hearing calls from the pocket mentioned in another thread.

    all of the new models have magnetic backs (71xx and pearl and i'm guessing the others) and when you put int in a holster made for them, it automatically turns off and turns on instantly (sleep mode) when you put it in and take it out. saves battery life and still takes in emails while on the go and makes people scratch their head when you show them because they don't know the case has a magnet in it. its a nice little feature.

    Re: Sleep function

    im a newb too.... Im still confused. Your saying that you put it in this holster then take it out and it puts the phone into a sleep mode? And you can still recieve and view emails? And the magnetic strip in the back is what detects the holster and sleeps the phone?

    No, once you put the phone in the holster it goes to sleep. You can still receive e-mails and sms and calls and everything else while the phone is sleep. The moment you take it out the screen comes back on and it wakes up instantly. There is a magnet in the phone that detects the magnet in the holster and it goes to sleep.

    Actually, it's not just the cases that will do it. If you place any magnet near the bb, (around the SD-ZX keys on a qwerty, front or backside) it will make it sleep.
