New 8110 powers off when placed in holster

I just replaced my 8100 with a 8110 and realized it was powering off on its own when I place it in my holster I used with the 8100.  Any ideas?  I've looked all through the phone for power options and have found none...

Re: New 8110 powers off when placed in holster

I am not aware of an option that turns the device "off" when in the holster.

 

Did you buy the device used?

Sounds like a defective device, i've never seen one, or heard of an option that will turn it off in holster

Re: New 8110 powers off when placed in holster

Strange indeed, the same holster works fine for both devices (in most cases).

 

Try facing the device in the holster in the other direction, facing inward towards the clip.
