Default Receiving Calls In Holster

Please Login to Remove!

What settings do i need to adjust to allow me to see who is calling while the phone is in the holster? Am I able to answer it as well?

In what holster? In most holsters for a BB you can't see in the holster.

You'll shoot yourself in the foot if you try and answer it in the holster. Seriously, most good BB holsters shut the screen off when you put it in, so all you can do is hear it until you take it out. You can set it to respond differently when its in a holster (ie vibrate, not ring) than when it's out though.

To the other question, you can answer calls when holstered using a headset.



But seeing the display while holstered, I agree with the others. That question does not compute. However, you could enable custom phone tunes to know if a call is from a particular contact..
