Detecting a Holster

Greetings,

 

How does the phone detect when it's in the holster? Do BlackBerry holsters have some kind of magnet inside?

 

Thanks,

Shane.

Hiya!

 Yes, holsters typically have a magnet that activates and 'Holster' feature.

 

cheers

Re: Detecting a Holster

Just to expand on Raelic's correct answer, just because it's a BlackBerry holster doesn't mean it's right for your phone.  Using a holster from another model of BlackBerry might not place the magnet in the correct position for your phone and would not acitvate the sleep function on your phone.

 

 

Make sure you pick a holster specifically designed for your model of phone.  :smileyhappy:

Thanks. Unfortunately I don't think BlackBerry makes a holster for the Style 9670.

Re: Detecting a Holster

I got a cheap Holster off Ebay and the Holster function works. I typed in my model number in the search. I was also wondering how it knew that it was in a holster thou. Now I know. Thanks.

The store lists a leather pocket and an Otterbox case:

However, neither of these cases have a belt clip, which is what I'm looking for.
