Magnet Backing Issue ? Correctable ?

Hey Everyone,


So i have been rocking my blackberry pearl for sometime .. and i love the automatic magnetic shutoff feature it has with the leather pouch it came with.


I lost my pouch a couple weeks ago .. and ordered a new one .. only to discover my phone now does not shut off when its fully inserted in the pouch .. i tried my friends pearl in the pouch .. and it shut off .... some how the magnet in my pearl must have gotten de-polarized (if that is a word) ...


Any idea if i could have this repaired ?

Re: Magnet Backing Issue ? Correctable ?

The same thing happened to me! My case broke and I bought another one and now I am constantly calling 555555 or 777777733333333. Is its broken? Can it be fixed? Is it just a setting? Should I return the case to the store?
