    Standby mode questions?

    Advertisement



    Hey All,
    I have had my Pearl for about two weeks now and love it. Switched over from Windows Mobile and what a difference. The question that I have for now is when I press the standbye button and put the unit my generic horizontal case it will sometimes come out of standby. I am careful not to hit any buttons and yet it still does. Am I missing something? I know my brother in law has an older BB and a specific BB holster that makes it shut off or turn on when you bring it out or put it back in. Ant help I would appreciate it.
    Thanks in advance.
    Todd

    todd - maybe the generic holster you have has the magnetic function in it...which sends the bb into standby on its own...its prolly not turning it off, just a flash of the magnet kicking in as you are sliding it passed?
    just my guess...

    cherrichiodo,
    Thanks very much for the reply. I thought that may be what it was, I guess since that whole rig seems to be magnet activated a generic case with magnet would still do it. Is there anyway that you know of that could disable that feature?
    Thanks again,
    Todd

    No way to deactivate it at this time via the BB. Most of the magnets in these type cases are wee small and thin, and probably very tough to remove. You best option might be to get a case without a magnet.
