Unhappy Data connection OFF when holstered

Please Login to Remove!

So I'm sitting there comfortably administrating our BES express server after activating a new batch of 9900's and out of nowhere get steam rolled by a board of unhappy users...

The battery life is terrible!

I'm looking for a method to turn off all data connections whilst the phone is holstered. My 4 hour search has got me nowhere, so can anyone here help?

It can be a free/paid App, a phone setting, a BES policy I really do not mind.

Thanks in advance,
Michael McDonald

Nope. That defeats the purpose of a BlackBerry anyway.

Also, please quantify terrible. How long do their batteries last?

Your four hour search might have gotten you nowhere because this is a horrible idea. Completely defeats the point of having a connected device. A better idea might be to issue charging pods so the users can dock their phones in the office, or in the case of those on the road issue in-car charging cables. Maybe issue a spare battery as well?
