    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~nope, you are stuck with it. I hate it also, the only way to disable it would be to downgrade the os back to the .42. Sorry to be the barer (sp?) of bad news

    Hello rashumon, welcome to pinstack. I dont have a pearl but I do have an 8703e that auto dims, and I kinda like it. How long have you had your pearl? You may get used to it.

    Re: Can I disable to screen Auto-Dimming feature?

    hey guys, thanks for being so welcoming
    had my pearl for 4 days now and i'm loving it - best phone and best PDA type device i have ever used - never thought it would be so great! (I have used them all - palm, winCrap and symbian and this kicks the S*** out of all of them)

    I love 4.2.0.67 so i guess i'l just get used to the dimmmmming... oh well, on the up-side it means the battery lasts longer

    cheers

    What OS do you have? anything past 4.2.1.101 should have the suto backlight option to turn the dimming off.

    Re: Can I disable to screen Auto-Dimming feature?

    Im new to this so i apologize. How would I go about finding which os release i have? The dimming feature would be cool if it did it at certain set times like 5 or 10 seconds of inactivity but it almost seems like my Pearl just decides when it wants to be bright and dim.

    Also does anyone know if its possible to get the screen to light up when i receive a text message? Even if the screen was dim it would be better than just the red led flashing. Thanks all.

    1) go to menu, options, about, third line down will give you the os 4.2.x.xxx

    2) I beleive when you turn auto dim off it doees light up when you get an sms.

    Welcome to the Stacks and post back with any other questions.

    remember... upgrading to a newer OS gives you more options to disable stuff ( like the autodim) but it also comes with the texting bug where when you type with multi-tap. I noticed I never had that problem with the OS my phone originally came with
