    i bought a universal case yesterday to put the droid x in but everytime i lock the phone and put it in the holster (the one with the flap to put on your hip) it unlocks the phone and says something about car home, does anyone know why this is happening. As soon as i close the flap the phone unlocks

    Does the case have a magnet in it? If so that is triggering that mode. Brian

    Yeah, if there is a magnet near the bottom speaker on the back of the phone it will trigger car dock mode (I was testing this the other day)

    Take receipt, return case to store. Does Verizon have cases for the X? I'm sure they do.
