    Is there ANY way to turn off the the magnetic turn off on an 8700?? I'd like to use my bb while in its holster...

    I have the 8700 in a skin (by seidio) and I also have the clip that goes with it... U can put the bb in the clip either facing in or out... I was hopin I could leave it in the clip facing while using it.... Does anyone know of a setting I can look into???

    The magnetic "on/off" puts your device in sleep mode. One way to prevent that would be to try loading bblight and see if you can adjust the settings to keep the light on all the time. I would caution you on doing this because the 8700 does use up a considerable amount of power to light up the screen. Good luck.

    What do you intend to do with the BB in its holster? IIRC I've always been able to receive calls with my BB in the holster...

    joewoo, The magnetic switch does not turn off the BB. It is still usable, meaning all the receive functions work when it is in the holster. I'm confused by what you mean use "while in the holster"

    I'd like to IM while still having the fone in the holster... As in... Type wit the bb in the holster... I kno when its in it that it doesnt turn off.. It jus shuts off the screen.... The fone is a tad too thin for my hands but if I leave it in the holster it fits that much better... Plus if u have the bb set up so that the screen shuts off in 30 secs, it won't drain the battery power too much...

    Again... The main goal I want to achieve is to have the bb in the holster facing outward so that I can IM without having to take it out the clip...

    Re: question for the pros..

    But if you have it facing out, does the magnet still turn it off? You might want to think about a different holster/case to do what you want. Check out my review of the VAJA leather 8700 Case. It's a little expensive, but will do exactly what you want and protect your BB also.

    Hope this helps
