Default Locking BB in holster

Please Login to Remove!

Verizon replaced my 8703e. My old one would lock with I put it in the holster. How do I get this new one to do that?

Thanks for that, I wondered why mine always came out locked.

Now if there was a way that it would unlock automatically when you took it out of the holster...life would be sweet! Hard to unlock my phone while I'm driving.

if you dont have that option set, it will "sleep" in the OEM sleve that it comes with, or any sleeper holster that has magnets in it, thus basically locking until you take it out.

I kinda like it to be locked right away rather than waiting for it to go to sleep. I can still accidentally make an unwanted call when I'm not knowing it.

the magnets should force it to sleep instantly, or just hold the mute button on top
