Default Blackberry Opens Email When Removed from Holster

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way to turn off the Blackberry opening an email when it is removed from the holster? I get a lot of spam and would prefer to see the subject of an email before opening. However, when I get notification beeps of a new email and pull it out of the holster, it automatically opens. I cannot find the setting to turn this off.

There is no way to turn it off. Most people suggest that you wait 10-15 seconds after the alert before removing the BB from the holster.

I wanted to know the exact same thing. I would think this is a common request. How difficult would it be to offer this as an option (next upgrade or something like that)?

take the magnet out of your holster- that's the only option. Or use a holster without a magnet.

This is the second thread on this subject opened today. I'm not usually one to scream "use the search button", but give me a break. ;)
