    Putting the storm to sleep????

    Please keep in mind this is my first ever bb. I read somewhere that you hold down the mute button for a few seconds. This never works for my storm. Is there another way or am I doing something wrong?


    Also if the phone is in sleep mode will you still get your messages and phone calls?

    Sleep mode is that red button
    At the bottom right. Lol
    No, no messages until you wake
    It up. .65 os is the one that
    Worked in. Hasn't worked since
    when you wake it back up all you
    Messages will come rollin in.
    The off key isn't really off
    Its just sleep. If it was off,
    It would take the same amount of
    Time to start up as a pull.
    Just like a computer

    Duk.... I just looked this up. A case with a magnet puts ur phone in standby mode, your radio is still on and u will still get message. The power button like jason mentioned turns off the radio. I also read that storm does really have a sleep mode like other bbs...

    Having a case that puts your phone to sleep is a good thing.
    It will drastically increase your battery life.
    My phone still rings and chimes when calls and emails come in.

    I use an otterbox and its great for my battery

    Lanes is correct I use my mag case all
    The time. It is just standby. You set it
    Vibe ring or nothing. When you pull it
    After receiving a mess. It automatically
    Goes to that mess. Its pretty cool.

    This is the case that should be arriving today. Its out for delivery. I cant wait. I like the pouch to that just slides in your pocket. I never use a holster case, I thought I would give it a try, if not that pouch thats above looks like a solid choice.

    I got this on sale of course. :biglaugh:
