    Auto Dim?

    Advertisement



    Anyone out there have an app to disable the autodim feature?

    Why does the pearl not have a feature to turn this off? Is this just so they can live up to their advertised battery time??

    Seriously annoying...almost enough to return this phone.

    Any way to petition them to re-update the OS adding this feature?

    Re: Auto Dim?

    This is an old thread, however, let me know if there is a petition list out there. I would love to sign it. Hope the RIM people can see this and offer an update that will bring back the "option" to turn off 'AUTODIM'. One would think an upgrade would be better, but in this case, it is worse. Its useless (the autodim) when you want it to be bright and it goes DIM.
    Very unhappy customer.
    Programmers at RIM need to see that people are unhappy with this lack of control and rectify this matter.
    Sorry to have to let out such frustration.
    =)

    Well, the new Italian .1.66 OS actually has the option to disable autodim, so it kinda leads us to think that the next US release will have the same option... So if you hate it that bad, upgrade to the Italian OS.

    Tmobile responded that they have had many complaints and that RIM will work on adding the option back on the next update. Just not sure why they removed it in the first place.

    All for now.
