Help with Settings

I am hoping you can help.

 

I've just bought the blackberry Flip case for the Z10 (http://shop.crackberry.com/blackberry-flip-shell-case/4AA13628.htm). When I open the case the phone automatically unlocks.

 

How do I change this setting?

That is the way it is designed to work.

 

Closed, the screen dims and saves battery power.

Opened, the screen awakens.

 

It's just like using the magnet-enclosed holster.

Re: Help with Settings

I'm guessing that the case has a magnet in it which puts the phone to sleep. When your phone detects that it has been removed from the case, it will "wake up " or unlock. There's probably nothing you can do to get around that.

Re: Help with Settings

It does contain the magnet, as explained.

 

And as mentioned in the description of the case:


When closed, the flip closure and hard shell protect the back and sides of your BlackBerry Z10 as well as the display, while automatically dimming your screen to help preserve power.

Fold the flip back and sit your device at one of two angles to keep working or enjoy your media. Plus, with a magnetic flip closure that opens and closes seamlessly, accessing your display is easy – you can even keep working by folding the flip closure back so your smartphone sits upright and ready to use.

Features:

  • Helps preserve battery life
  • Magnetic flip closure
  • Fits BlackBerry Z10
  • Protects against scratches
  • Flip closure
  • Folds for convenient viewing
