BlackBerry Case Affects Storm

The BlackBerry Storm  screen light turns off immediately if the back of the Storm rests against the magnet closure of  the Swivel Holster.   I have to wonder if that magnet affects other things when the Storm is in the case.

Re: BlackBerry Case Affects Storm

no, it is only designed to put the phone in a low power "sleep" mode.

You can also set the phone to vibrate only when its in the case or

hang up from a call when placed in case.

Re: BlackBerry Case Affects Storm

Has anyone seen any correlation between their phone freezing and having it in the BB case?

 

I have noticed that my phone seems to freeze more often when I'm pulling it out of the case.  Today I pulled it out and the screen froze in a "snowy" image.  I could do nothing other than pull the battery.

i have the horizontal bb oem case, and i have 0 issues, works great!  the only time my phone froze was out side of the case.

Re: BlackBerry Case Affects Storm

The battery is placed there for that specific reason to put your BB to sleep when it is in the case.
My curve came with a factory case and it had the magnet in it.
I bough a case from verizon for my storm and it was made specifically for the BB storm and it has a magnet in it.
I have never had any issues with either case.

Re: BlackBerry Case Affects Storm

Seems some are starting to find a link between having the BB in the case and getting BlackBerry Instant Messages.  Pulling it out of the case has frozen my BB many times...  I just never made the connection.  Just happened again to me today.  What tipped me off was the screen froze with the message I received still visible.  (Other times, I cannot say this happened.)

 

Anyway - check out this thread for a few more details.
