    How should "flip to safe power" work? I read BlackBerry manual, looks like only gsm, sms and alarm should work, wifi, mobile data should be OFF, but I always get notifications from email, facebook and etc, looks like wifi and mobile data do not turns off

    That's how it is supposed to happen, the Help entry for flip to save power states exactly this.

    When I have this enabled, every time I pick the phone up (from the flipped position) the phone turns on. I have not updated to the latest OS as its not available for me yet - I'm on 10.3.1.1779.

    All other interactions are turned off, including lift to wake.

    Anyone else having this issue?

    In the light that I can't perform an OTA update yet (factory sim free on 3 in England) where can I get the official update?

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    Maximum battery is consumed by screen. Lets say when you are chatting with someone or just browsing and u nt ACTIVELY using it for some reason say waiting for a reply so its easier to put it face down and screen turns off saving ur battery for that period of time... this is all flip to save does

    Using gestures - User Guide - BlackBerry Passport Smartphone - 10.3

    "You still receive notifications for incoming calls, messages, and alarms.", so, no emails, no other notifications, so, mobile data, WIFI and etc should be disabled, logical?

    And, if POWER SAVING, then, WIFI and mobile data do not save power

    No. Not logical. It is not clear what "messages" means. It's obvious that in this case, "messages" means emails and BBM's as well.

    It is actually ILLOGICAL That flipping it over would disable data. Because:

    1.) The screen, more than anything, is the major power hog.
    2.) It would be ridiculous for the phone to disable/enable data services every time it was flipped over.
    3.) This obviously isn't the way it works.

    I'm not sure how this thread got sidetracked by the bizarre assumption that flipping the device would disable data services. But I'm sure glad it doesn't work that way. That would be patently absurd. I just want to screen to dim/illuminate based on the flip.

    If you read the manual or the built in help text, then you will be able to understand what it does.

    Myself I thought it would turn on the music and have the camera LED flash as a disco. But none of that happened, that was so weird! Guess I should have read the manual

    I read the Help topic, and nowhere does it say it will turn off data. It doesn't say it will turn off data, it doesn't turn off data, it does what it's supposed it, and I am pleased.

    End of story.
