How does the phone know when it is in the holster? Or do I have to press something to enable holster mode? I use stand by when I put it in my holster so is that holster or what do i need to do?
Yeah, ditto to all that has been said.
When buying a case, some will say it has the ability to go into sleep mode or some will simply say it has "the magnets."
However, many cases you see on eBay will NOT have such "sleeper" magnets in the case, they simply have a magnet to hold the flap closed. Those cannot activate the Pearl's "holster modes."
"Holster mode" on the Pearl means you can set your notifiers, tones and display to work differently when in the case [or holster] as opposed to it either not being in a case or in some type of case or holster without magnets.
Perhaps a video is worth a thousand words.
Here is a little video I made demonstrating how cases with magnets work. This is the Seidio side mounted leather case. A very good item.
Notice the display going on and off as the phone is slipped into the case.
A bit corny, the movie, but I tried to jazz it up a little in light of the subject [plus I need the practice in making movies]. LINK http://www.heartinsanfrancisco.com/seidiosleepdemo.wmv
