So I have always used clip style "holsters" for my cell phones.
Problem is Blackberry does not make one for the Pearl.
So I found a knockoff brand for like $10 but it does not put the Pearl to "sleep" when you holster it.
Well after a little searching around here I found that it is nothing more than a ordinary magnet that is used to put them to "sleep".
So a little engineering and I think I have a pretty slick solution.
Here is what you will need:
A $10 Blackberry "compatible" holster available at your favorite mall kiosk ;)
A $2.99 pack of Promag button magnets (available at Michaels or your favorite hobby store), a drill with 7/32 bit and some electrical tape.
First take the drill and try and drill out just the center of the rear cutout.
Now slip the magnet in (it will be a snug fit but this is good) and make sure it is flush and does not effect the blackberry sliding in the holster, adjust as necessary.
Now snap the blackberry in and it should "sleep".
Next get some electrical tape and tape the magnet in place.
Voila, a holster that sleeps the Blackberry just like the $50 holster Blackberry will make sometime next year :p
Well I hope this helped a few of you who have wanted a clip style holster but wanted the blackberry sleep feature
