When I place my X in the case facing in with the slider lock on, the lock turns off and I can find apps running when I withdraw the phone. When I place it facing out, it does not. When I had my BB and placed it facing in, it placed the BB in suspend mode. The BB case has a magnet in it to cause the device to go into suspension. Is there a magnet in the Verizon case? Is there only one way to place the phone in the case? I guess I missed something here.
