    Question BB10 - Holster / Profiles

    Can some one tell me if BB10 supports the old options of 'always' 'in holster ' 'out of holster' options in the notifications/profile settings?

    Holster is handing for meetings etc at the moment as you can set it to silent by just using the holster, nice and easy!

    bugger, so the only thing the holster does is lock the device?

    this is what it seems like. I am really hoping BlackBerry will bring this functionality to BB10 at some point in the future updates.

    I'm also really missing this feature. I hope they are planning on re-implementing this soon.

    Not totally true. There are some holster settings. Within the phone app, you can go to settings and there is a holster option you can modify. It let's you choose if you want the phone to answer calls when removed from holster automatically or hang up on them when inserted.

    Also in Device password settings, there is an option for having the phone be automatically locked when holstered.

    So right right now there is no way to toggle the profiles when holstered. But you would think knowing there is some holster interaction that maybe they will build that back in a future release. 10.1 maybe??

    I really hope it's coming. I like to switch my notifications automatically on vibrate when in holster.

    Not a deal breaker it's just a nice feature, hopefully coming soon to BB10. Maybe around March / April with the Q10 release, a bright side to the waiting for the devices to be released in Oz :-)

    DAMN!! I was gonna start a thread about this one but found this thread instead. This is one of the BIG pluses that BB had over the competition. I love my holster so I finally purchased an OEM one and now I find out about this...sigh...hurry up BBRY and add this option back in. Otherwise the holster is just to put my BB to sleep. This is huge for me

    On the bright side the new leather pouch is awesome, great quality and design. Perfect for protecting the phone.

    Received my holster this a.m. It is wicked. I love it.
    But....it wakes up when removed from the holster, and I do not like this very much! If I touch the screen in any way I have apps opening. Would like to be able to set to not wake and I will swipe to wake as I have been doing.

    Addendum. Would also be ok if removing from holster would open to the notification screen like when you do a half swipe.

    I just filled out a survey yesterday from the BlackBerry Beta Zone about notifications and I recommended that they had more holster options so hopefully they listen and implement these into a future build.

    I'd like to see it back to what was on BBOS 7.1 at the least.

    Go to the beta zone, get an account and fill out the survey.

    From those who are running 10.1 - was there any of the holster functionality added?

    I just got my Z10 and I miss this feature.

    No there is not an option. I talked to Bbry about a month ago, he claimed it was a huge over sight. One would think we all the leaks leaking out they would of addressed it. I miss the option too, I feel like I have a stupid IPhone or droid and have to do everything for it

    Didn't notice anything new with 10.1.

    Sounds like 10.2 will have some more in depth notification settings so hopefully more holster options aren't too far away!

    10.2.0.1047 doesn't (as far as I can tell...) have any added holder / profile settings. Unless I haven't yet found it.

    It sucks. Just like on my old Bold 9900, I want it to vibrate when holstered, but when it sitting on my desk, I don't want it to vibrate (just flash LED). On my Q10 I can't have it both ways.

    *sigh*

    but other than that... Q10 is ONE SMASHING DEVICE!

    Looks like it is not in 10.2.0.1047 as wx_junkie said, waiting about it too! Another option is probably to develop some small app that could be run with some trigger as they are proposing with Headless.

    I cannot believe it is this long after BB10 is released and this option is not available? If this is supposed to be such a great phone for "Business and Power Users, what is the deal? This is tremendously important for business people who want to have their phone quiet in the holster. Who needs anything but a vibe when its on your belt? I love my Q10, but some of these things sure do irk me, got to be one of the easiest things to implement, this comes before stuff like picture lockscreens etc.

    I'm thinking profiles will come in 10.3
    Rumor has it that it's a major change. Hopefully one of those changes will be profiles.

    Does anyone know if there has been any action on this? I'm running 10.2.1.2228, and I'm still seeing nothing more then the "lock device when holstered" option. The feature enhancement writeup for 10.3 here: Hands-on with an early build of BlackBerry 10.3 | CrackBerry.com doesn't mention anything about holster settings either.

    I don't always use a holster, but when I do, I'd love for my phone use a holster notification profile.
