Default how to disable magnetic sleep feature

Please Login to Remove!

Is there a way I can disable my 8800 from turning off the screen when it is holstered. I use a open front holster and I want to be able to use the device while it is in the holster.

The only thing I can think of is to remove the magnet from the holster.

Trying to see if it is something I can do through the settings in the handset.

Are you trying to override the auto backlight (I can't imagine an open-faced case with a magnet)? I think you need a third party app for that.
