    Those with the OEM Leather Holster

    Advertisement



    I just noticed this, but my OEM leather holster doesn't activate the "sleep" function when I put the phone in.

    The magnet is located at the top of the case (where it connects the strap), however the sleep function is detected at the keyboard.

    Anyone else have this issue?

    The leather pouch that it came with does activate the sleeper function though.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i just bought mine at best buy for 14.44 plus tax...holster is specifically for the curve and does put my phone into sleep mode. When I was looking on ebay for a holster I noticed some had the sleep funtion and some didn't...and both were oem BB pouches but with different model numbers. You may not have the holster with the sleep function.

    mine is the OEM leather pouch but it does not have a part "where to put the strap on". when I put my 8310 in it, it automatically shuts the screen... is that what we call the "sleep mode?" there is a setting that if you put it in the pouch, you can lock the handheld when holstering...

    That's the one I'm talking about.

    It goes into sleep when I put it in when the the screen is facing my hip (which is good anyways) but not when the screen faces outward.

    It's ok though, I should be putting it inward anyways.

    I'm thinking about getting the Seidio bundle with their back cover, rubberized case, and holster...

    i use this leather case, but the 8700 version because i also use the sedio hard case, fits in the 8700 case perfect, and puts it on standby facing either way.

    I have the same OEM case and for the most part it puts my 8320 to sleep either way I place it in the holster. However, once in a while when I have the BB in the holster with the screen facing outwards and go to pull the BB out, it seems to wake up too early and a key may be pressed causing it to open the find screen, or go to the browser....this does not occur when the BB is placed in the holster with the screen facing inwards towards the hip.

    It sounds to me like you might have a defective case. if I were you I'd send it back.

    Yeah I use the OEM leather case that I got with my 8700g and I have no problem with mine activating sleep mode. Maybe you have a defective case? Either that or its too stretched out and its not activating the magnet anymore.

    Mine works fine (and it doesn't matter which way it is in the case). Maybe you demagnetized the magnet. It could be possible as some people have strange body chemistry that will demagnetize credit cards.

    yep mine puts my phone to sleep too. I even cut the flop part with the logo on it because i wanted to just be able to slip in/out and still locks and all. Theres 2 magnets in that case : in the flop and at the bottom
