    I bought an off brand pouch for my X. Everytime I put in it, it must sense the magnets and go into dock mode. What free apps are there to prevent this from happening OR is there a setting I can change on the phone to disable dock mode and keeo my screen from staying illuminated and killing my battery

    Verizon sells this one holster which i have and think this is the best case and holster combo for any phone. It comes with a case like piece which you put your phone in for protection it only adds 1mm of thikness and then it has a holster for to clip on your hip.

    I've tried that. Sometimes when I put the phone face out with the ear speaker forward it does not go into dock mode. Buying a diff case would be pointless and is not going to happen since I already have one.

    Any others use a good app or know how disable dock mode. Is sucks b/c it draining my battery while in the holster!

    none of these apps are working for me. they just disable the car dock which i already uninstalled. i need to disactivate the metal sensors on the phone. im sure it has to be somewhere in the file directory.
