Belt clip magnet, sleep mode and music

Basically my question is, if I get a belt clip for my Blackberry Curve 8330 and it has one of those magnets that uses the proximity technology to put the phone into sleep mode, will that prevent me from listening to music on the phone while it's in the belt clip?

Re: Belt clip magnet, sleep mode and music

No, the magnet will not keep your songs from playing.  I use this method daily.  Select the media player, songs and play.  Insert in your holster and enjoy......I do this frequently at work and enjoy my 400 mp3's while working.  You can adjust the volume to suit your preferences.  Incidentally, my volume was reduced by almost 50% when upgrading to the new 4.5 OS.  I used MP3Gain and it normalized (improved the volume significantly) my songs and I'm happy again. 

I love my magnetic catch holster and would not be without it......even bought a spare.  It provides great protection but it is still possible to accidentally dial a number while holstered if you are using speed keys and lean against something that activates a key.  For that reason, you may want to lock your BB (depress the k key) prior to holstering if you think your activities may cause this to happen.
