Auto unlocks after I take it out of the holster - Solved
I am mezmorized at the fact that my phone auto unlocks after I take it out of the holster. It's my old Treo holster but it still works. Does anyone know how it does this. I have examined the possibilities and can't figure it out.

It works like a calculator that turns off when the light doesnt hit it anymore.
Not sure the proper term, but you get it.
Thats what I thought too but it doesn't do it when it's in my pocket. Only the holster.
Is it possible that the holster is putting pressure on the lock button, and when you take it out, it releases?

I think it is magnets in the holster. I had a Voyager and with my Blackberry, there is a magnet in the holster. I think the unit senses the magnet and lock/unlocks accordingly.
There is a magnet inside of the case and one in the device that detects the field and does an action. In your case, unlocks the device.
Edit: It's a very weak magnet so for the love of xenu, don't go putting a neodymium next to your phone.

Yea, there is a magnet that holds the case shut. That was my other thought.
