The holster you have probably does not have a magnet to enable the sleep/lock switch. All BB labeled products have them however OEM products may or may not depending on how good they are or if they make a certain holster from more than one make of mobile phone (i.e Krusell)

 

Another reason may be that your BB's settings are preventing your device from going into sleep/lock mode. Go into OPTIONS>SECURITY>GENERAL SETTINGS and check.

I bought a very nice leather case with the sleep magnet that works from:

www.cases.com  for $19 + shipping.it has an excellent belt clip.

Please confirm that below options are set correctly -

 

From your application list go to Profile -> Advanced -> highlight the active profile -> click Menu then Edit -> highlight Phone/Calendar (as desired) and hit trackball set the following -

 

Out of Holster    : Tone

Tune                 : Select desired tune

Volume             : high/medium/low

 

In Holster          : Tone

Tune                 : Select desired tune

Re: Curve 8330 Holster Problem

Thanks.....holster is the one that came with the Blackberry. I think the back of the case where the magnet is got a little bowed out. I used a little finger manipulation and it seems to be working. Thanks!
