    Default Z10 flip case draining battery...while off?

    My Z10, which has been behaving well for the most part, seems to lose about 20% of it's battery charge after I've shut it down and left it closed in the flip (should call it "flap") case for the night. By "shut down", I mean the 3-2-1, really 'off', shut-down. Which is weird, because this morning, when I opened the flap to start, the screen was subtly backlight - as though it was in stand by, and not actually off (the phone lay, screen side down, on a table, unmoved for the night). As well, it needs the-hold-the-power-button for 10 seconds in order to start properly. I haven't any issues with charging, and my battery life is pretty good, compared to some user's experience.

    None of this was happening before I used the flip/flap case. Was wondering if the magnet was confusing the phone, and turning it "half-on" during the night, causing battery drain.....anyone else experience this?

    I've had the same problem but only when I shut the phone down while it's still in the the flip /flap case. I now take it out of the case when I charge it and it turns off fine. On another occasion when I was turning the phone off it froze on the carrier screen this happened with the case off.

    Thanks - glad it's not just me. Actually - I've had that turn off freeze too - took like 10 minutes to turn off once....

    I didn't wait I panicked and did a battery pull! Have to say I like the case a lot and like the op says if there's a magnet in the case it might be causing the problem. Cheers

    Not seen the same problem on mine, It was powered down last night and left on the side.. the only thing I make sure is that its face down as the flap doesn't always sit flush and I wonder if that confuses it to turn on. I've noticed also if someone calls me when the phone is off, it sometimes ring and turns on again

    I'm having the same issues with the battery and I also have the flip case... I think I'll leave it out tomorrow and see what happens.

    This is very strange on my phone. I have the gesture thing turned off. If I hold my flip case away from the screen then I have to press the button at the top to wake up the phone but if I pull the flip case back over the screen, it wakes it up. I was thinking this shouldn't happen

    That's actually a BlackBerry thing, if you have owned previous BB and used a holster, you would have(probably) noticed that when you removed it from holster the screen was on, and perhaps the message you last received was on-screen. The flip case works the same, triggers the "Holstered" magnet turning the screen off, so when you flip it open the screen comes on, and goes off when you close the flip again.

    Thanks for the reply. I've never had a blackberry before so I'm learning everything about from here. So now if I follow you correctly, I don't have to worry the phone can dial up someplace as long as the flip case is closed.

    If you're using the the "flip-case", you would not be able to charge the phone with the "flip-lid" closed anyway. Might as well leave it in the case, with the lid open.

    Yep, the "Holstered" mode prevents any input. Even pushing the lock button will not do anything.
