    Options - Screen/Keyboard has the backlight options.

    find out what runtime image you are running, OPTIONS > ABOUT

    then find out if RIM and or your provider has an update available.

    I had the same issue. Direct from Rogers my phone was running 4.2.1.6X, I updated to 4.2.1.94 and it cleared up allot of issues. including the backlight proble.

    your thumb is probably covering the sensor while you are changing settings, making it think you are in the dark, and dimming the screen. When you are typing, you are not covering the sensor, so it gets bright.
