Display Clock while charging?

Hi all,

 

does anyone know if it is possible to set the Q10 to show the clock / lock screen while the device is being charged?

For old models (e.g. BOLD 9000) this could be specified.

 

Thanks & best regards


Alex

When you start charging, you have to swipe down to see the clock (from the lock screen).

Re: Display Clock while charging?

Hi,

thanks for your suggestion. But this sets the device to the "bedside mode" hence no notifications will be shown or sound.

It was very good on the old BBs that while charging the ordinary (white digits) clock was displayed.

No, Just swiping down and tapping on the Alarm clock does not automatically set in Bedside mode.

Once in the Clock screen, Swiping the second time to "bedside mode" places it is bedside mode.

 

But no, there is not automatic clock while charging feature. Sorry. Perhaps that is to come.

Re: Display Clock while charging?

Hi JSanders,

 

sorry to say and mybe I misunderstood what to do. But when I charge the phone and it is in locked screen I can see the little tab on the top (with the little bed and moon) that when I pull it down shows the bedside mode.

 

No way to pull down only the clock. Or I do not know how to do it...

 

Regards


Alex

There are 2 possibilities.

1. You swipe down from the lock screen and you get to bedside mode.

2. Swipe down from any other screen which gets you to a menu where you tap on "Alarm" which gets you to the clock without bedside mode.

As freakingvibe described.

 

I didn't read that you were already in the lock screen.

same as swiping down from the top bezel > alarm... you get the clock screen, not in bedside mode.

Re: Display Clock while charging?

Well, maybe some misunderstanding. I know how to Display the clock in General (via shortcut or swiping down and press alarm).
But even while charging the display switches off after a while (entering standby). This is different to e.g. BlackBerry Bold 9000 where while charging the clock was displayed all the time, hence was a nice gadget as it served as a desk clock.

A feature like "Show clock while charging" is what I am missing from the clock's setting menu.

Best regards

Alex
