    keypad light?

    Advertisement



    Does anyone know how and when the BB decides to turn the backlight on the keypad? Is it based on the surrounding light or time of day? I have the 8310 on AT&T with the new upgrade to 4.5. My setting is not to auto dim the backlight, but it seems my keyboard doesn't always light up- so is it the time of day or ambient light? or am i just cazy!!

    I agree with you. My Blackberry 8310 does the exact same thing.. I never really thought into it though?.

    Mine lights up when ever it deems I'm in a dim lighted place. It does it on it's own.

    My understanding is that it's based on the light sensor. If it's dark enough, then it turns on. The reason why it can look weird is depending how you hold it, you may cover the light sensor and fool it into thinking it's dark -- then the light kicks in.
    As always, just my opinion...
