    Very excited about my brand new Classic - and especially about its fabulous keyboard. Just realizing how much I've missed the physical keys on my Z10...

    I kindly ask for CB community help:
    After going more than twenty times through all settings and searching google for hours, sorry to say that I was not able to find (again!) the simple setting that allow the Classic screen to go ON when taken out from the BB Holster.
    The screen goes off when put in it, but I would like to keep screen locked (off) when I extract the device from its holster.
    Sadly, yesterday I bought the phone and I turned this damn feature on by myself....

    Thanks to all who may help.

    On BB10 the holster settings are accessed by swiping down when in the phone call screen. Its a weird place.

    Thks, ZIdentia, but on that Holster setting I have only two options:
    one for "Answer a Call by removing Device from Holster"
    the other is "End Call by Putting Device Back in Holster"
    That's all!
    I am looking for something like "Turn Device screen ON when removing from Holster"

    I think you are looking for :
    Settings, security and privacy, device password.

    Go to the bottom and turn on lock in holster.

    This way, when it comes out of the holster, the BlackBerry will be locked, not just asleep.

    Impossible to find some holster settings :-(-img_20150219_125547.png

    Chris,
    Thank you, but... my problem arise when I take the device OUT of holster, and not when holstered.
    BTW, I have not set a password lock.

    Take a knife and cut the magnet out of the holster. :-)

    (no, seriously...)

    Dan.... meant... if you set it to lock on holster, when it comes out, the screen will still be locked.

    Just a thought.

    Thank you,Chris!
    Nice workaround, it works as you supposed...
    Only that I hate password lock Just want to swipe up to wake the phone after taken out from holster.
    I am now wondering if I've really saw this setting during initial setup

    I can't remember either. I think you may have mixed up memories with the auto answer when unholstering.

    Aside.
    I still miss holster/unholstered profils like in BBOS.

    You're so kind, Chris, and most probably you're right: confusing with auto-answer when out of holster.
    I'll come back here if I will find something new about this.

    Have fun!
