    The only dumb question you can ask, is the one you didn't.

    I'd be happy to try and help you. Go into your ringer profiles. In there you should be able to pick and choose your ring tones and volume levels.

    Now as far as the backlight, I believe it is automatic. It will adjust itself to the light conditions you are viewing it in. But on my 8700g, I can push the power key and bring it up to 100% that way.

    And if some one can help AJ out further, please feel free. And AJ, feel free to ask any question you need to ask. We are here to help.

    I just spoke to N8DBB, he also has the 8100. He says to do your ringers : Go to profiles, down to advanced, scroll to the profile, then click the menu button.

    I'll post back further instructions. Im talking to him in Pin now.

    About the backlight, you can go to Options -> Screen/Keyboard, then change auto backlight to off. It will be a constant level now.
    The reason it exists is to brighten in brighter light to help you see better, but agreed, sometimes it acts a bit funky.

    John, I think that is one of the features that works just like the 8700. I know I have the same setting choice in my Options - Screen/Keyboard settings.

    The 8100s are a little diff than other bb in the profiles.

    Open ur profiles. Scroll to the bottom where it says advanced. Click on advanced.

    Now, scroll to the profile that you want to edit. Now, don't press the ball, because that will activate that profile.

    Instead, press the menu button (button directly to the left of the trackball)
    Now scroll up to edit and press your trackball. It will bring up the options. Scroll to the one that you want to edit, click the trackball, and then edit accordingly. Make sure to save your changes before moving onto the next notification.

    I don't recall if that was even in the manual, because I never really read them anyways unless its something important. I believe I found it out via trial and error. The manual may only tell you how to actually change profiles. But like I said, manuals do nothing for me so I can't say for sure one way or another.

    Hope this helps.

    There ARE NO DUMB questions. We would rather you ask than to take a chance of messing up your Blackberry.
