    Anyone know of a widget that will turn your screen on when you remove it from a magnetic holster? And turn it off when you holster it? Hitting the power button is a bit awkward.

    My BB used to do that . Just a thought.

    Thanks

    The phone would need to have a magnet to be able to do that.

    It doesn't.

    Well I wad just thinking. It can detect metal. It has a magnetometer. Thought it might be able to sense the magnet in the case.
