Default KickStart Holster not working

Please Login to Remove!

i recently replaced/purchased a OEM Blackberry KickStart Pearl 8220 Leather Holster thinking my BB Pearl 8130 would turn on and off when placing it into the sleeve like it used to. is there a setting i need to engage? perhaps the 'magnetized proximity-sensing technology'? and where can i find it in my phone?

I would think you would want a holster for a 81xx to use on your 8130

The 8220 does not need to be turn on and off with the leather sleeve... since you have to open it anyway... so I dont think the leather holdster made for that model has the magnet needed to activate the feature...

Flips have a magnetic sensor.

OP.. the Kickstarts' sensor is on the "other" end...

Add/edit: upon further fiddlin' 8220s seem to sense both ends...
