Right, I have tried this manual workaround - it does work.
However, I feel I am looking strange carrying the BB like this.
I now sit on the BBs since several years, and, besides from the occasional shutdown they did not suffer damages.
the 7290 did not have this problem (!).
The 9700 comes with a new holster, you can put the BB in it, and then, put the complete thing in your back pocket. But then, you need not only to pull it out from your pocket, when taking a call, you have to extract it from the holster - difficult.
If nothing else comes up I have to wait....
