Smile Question about a Pearl case.

Please Login to Remove!

I just got a T-Mobile case for my Blackberry Pearl. It is the T-Mobile pouch with the magnet. Here is my dilemma. When I put the BB on Standby and then put it in the case I can see that it comes on for a brief second and then goes off again once it is all the way into the case. I am assuming that it is the magnet that is doing this. Is this normal for the BB to do that? Is is hurting the BB at all with the magnet?

Does anyone have this case?

The magnet on your case automatically puts your BB in "standby" when you put it in (and it comes out of standby when you take it out). That's why you see it turn on briefly when you put it in your case, it is taking itself out of standby and then putting itself back in.

Just don't bother putting it to standby before you put it in its case.

(And, no it's not hurting your BB... most of the "official" BB cases have a magnet in them for this reason).

Ya, that just means that the "sleeper" magnets are serving their function.
