BB Z30 locks completely when in holster



So...bought this holster (see picture)....after the phone is inserted in the skin (not in the holster per se) the power/lock button does not work anymore. I mean it does not work mechanically...it's like blocked. Works only the 1st time I touch after insertion and that is to shut down the phone (it's trying to shut it down).

Other than that, the button is rigid and I cannot do anything with the phone.

As soon as the button is out of the skin, the button works again and the phone too.


Pretty sure it's a setting soemwhere b/c I bought three holsters (for my colleagues too) and they do not have this issue.


Thank you in advance.
