As per my understanding, auto lock in flip cover requires proximity sensor information to lock/unlock the phone.
I am not sure how the cases mentioned above works...

Can any one help to understand this?

I've got just a random flip case wich i think it doesnt has such a feature but i thought it should work with the sensor like during a phone call so it could be controlled with an application?

It's pretty easy to set up with Tasker... I've been playing around with it for a while.

I have a flip case also and I have that set up already - it's crazy useful. Search online there's tons of tutorials explaining what to do.

Flip cases just need a small magnet that let's the phone know it's closed. However the light sensor on the phone would register very dark inclosed within a flip cause which could be used to set this up with software.

The very nice, very inexpensive ($6) MiniSuite Leather case from WalMart (or W...M.com) does this. --Larry
