Default Out-of-holster Settings

Does the new 8700c have such settings? I have read the holster is plastic, not fabric ... does the device still know whether or not it is on your belt like the 7100?

Yeah, since you say that, I guess I should have posted it elsewhere. Also, you did not answer my question. But thanks.

TonyCT, I guess we are too new to know how to work these fancy forum things, huh. We take things to mean what they say.

Default 8700 Holster

I received my 8700c from Cingular yesterday. The device is great but the plastic holster does function properly. The 8700 does not recognize when it is in the holster. I belive the magnet is in the wrong place in the plastic holster. I hope to get an after market leather holster soon. If anybody knows where I can get one, please advise.

It is in the wrong place if the device is inserted facing out. It must be facing in. And no, no leather cases yet.

8700c Unlock: I bought the 8700c while in the states last week and explained to the Cingular sales rep i wanted to use it in Europe. He advised me of a site http://www.gsmlocker.com ; I have visited it and paid the fee, however have yet to receive the unlock code even thought they claim they have it. Does ANYONE have or know of site/place that I might be able to get the code from?

Please remember that the search function is your friend. This capability is available, but is slightly different ifrom the previous qwerty phones n how it is initially accessed. This thread is the announcement thread for the 8700 forum. Search the remainder of this forum and you will find the answer to your question.

Hope this helps.
