    Hello all. So as I stated before I prefer my Keyone naked. However I did pick up the Blackberry Flip case, I find it very cool with the viewing window. A couple of questions for those who have one. When I dock the phone at night it no longer shows the time on a dim screen, closed or open. Anyway to get the time to show in the viewing window? Also, how do you mount phone in the car with the case? My phone is my GPS so I need it visible at all times. Thanks in advance. Cheers,

    I don't have the clock issue with my USB dock I use. In my car I use just a clamp style mount from dollarama.

    This phone is a little too complex and scattered for my skills but I am reminded of a couple of seemingly related configurations in Settings > Display, that you might already know about.

    At the bottom, there is a switch for Smart Cover that sizes the lock screen to fit the case window when the cover with magnet closes over the sensor:

    The other is under Screensaver on the Display page that can be switched on to have a Clock screensaver that can be configured by pressing the gear icon on that line and the 3-dot menu upper right corner:

    Thanks, I just reset my screen saver. Hopefully that will do it. Thanks,

    Well, tried both solutions to no avail. Hopefully an update can address this docked issue. Thanks none the less. Cheers,

    Yes, it's a beauty. Don't get the Chinese crap it won't work, if you do, get the Blackberry branded one. It's brilliant! Cheers,

    One feature I like on the flip case is that when you fold the front cover back it magnetically clips to the back of the phone so that you can hold it in one hand. That way it’s only slightly bigger than using it with a slip-on cover. If you don’t want to fold it back it still feels very nice in your left hand with it open.

    I got a PDAir flip case, not a smart case with the window, but a nice case. There's a link to the product page in my post here: https://forums.crackberry.com/blackb.../#post13063456 and other infos in that thread.

    Only problem in that case (no pun intended ) magnet would need to be stronger and it would trigger sleep screen on front, like cover is closed. I've used on my Priv beautiful , much better leather case, same style as original, from China. When folded back, since magnet is just slightly stronger, it would do just that.

    Sure, here are the photos. This is the case for my Priv. Thicker leather then original Priv flip case, thicker grain and smells great, has magnet, cuts for led, speaker are precise. Only issue is that magnet looks a little bit stronger so when fliped back, cover sometimes activates sleep screen.

    I've ordered same one for my KeyONE, from same supplier, from AliExpress:
