    Post Use 8100 carrying case by T-mobile with care!!

    Advertisement



    One of the T-mobile reps saw that I had the 8100 and the carrying case and told me to place the BB in the case with the face pointing in. The reason? The magnetic flap has caused some BBs to show up a black dot in the middle of the screen!!

    Glad I customized mine up and glued the magnets on the bottom so its no place near the screen. I was wondering about that since thats 2 really strong magnets right in the middle of the LCD which cant be good in the long run. You would think they wouldnt even sell such a product that is known to cause damage to a product they are selling themselfs

    somehow, I seriously doubt the magnet in _any_ case can distort or damage the LCD. An LCD (unlike a CRT) has no components that would be negatively affected in a magnetic field. The T-Mobile folks may just be repeating something that perhaps an uninformed customer may have passed on to them. Perhaps there is indeed something of which I am not aware, but I think the case, and magent, are totally harmless.

    I have a 7100 and I thik that the "black dot" is actually a worn area. I use the factory slip case and I do have a small circle on the back of my BB that just happens to be in the same location as the magnet.

    Thanks for the info. My wife and I have been using the case for a couple of days before I read your post. I don't know if the magnet will damage the LCD but it doesn't hurt to be careful.

    We've decided to continue using the TMobile case but we insert the Pearl upside down and facing inward so the magnet triggers the sensor.

    Thanks again.
