I work with a narcotics agent, and he is asking if it is possible to start his video recorder on his 8530 and then insert the BB back into his holster and have it continue to record. Also how long can he record doing this?
Try using a non BlackBerry holster without the sleep magnet.
Or just simpily get another bb holster and remove the magnet. If using a plastic belt holster, find the magnet and use something hot around it to help melt the plastic around it...a heated flathead screwdriver or knife. It will leave a clean cut if your careful and the device will continue recording.
