    Re: Screen brightness on the PEARL

    im guessing your phone came with the newest Operating System update available. if so you may not be able to adjust screen brightness. i dunno i got my pearl in sept and read some of the posts where ppl were made because of this exact issue. i never downloaded the update (so i can change brightness) you may be able to "revert" to an older Operating System, i'm not sure though... question for the other pearlers out there, when you updated...was it all in the desktop manager software (update i mean) if so maybe someone with the older OS could help ppl downgrade and enjoy the freedom of screen brightness choice. i dunno just a thought

    oh welcome to the stacks by the way

    Re: Screen brightness on the PEARL

    The problem that you have is that with the new OS update they have something on it that makes the screen adjust the dimness based on what the lighting is where you are. So if your in a dark place it is different than if you were in a light place. The only way I know of to fix this is to downgrade to an older OS. I'm not sure which one doesn't have this new feature but I'm sure someone will come along with your answer.

    Hope this helped,

    Re: Screen brightness on the PEARL

    This comes up over and over, you would think that RIM would realize that their stupid "auto dim" feature ticks us off.

    As far as I know, if you are on version 4.2.0.42 then you can go to Options>Screen/Keyboard and turn off "auto dim".

    Every Subsequent OS since 4.2.0.42 has took away the option to turn off "auto dim". Considering most people are on V4.2.0.69 or .71 - the chances of finding .42 is slim. I don't have it or would be happy to share it with you.

    Re: Screen brightness on the PEARL

    Someone had a link to a site that still had 4.2.0.42, but I can't find the post now. You might try searching PinStack for it. You might have better luck than I did.

    I found the link but even that one didnt work, so I didnt want to post it here. I tried looking everywhere for the OS and it's so hard to find. Tmo's website doesnt work either, they should of done something by now it been a long time.

    Peter, From the reports I've read, TMO took 4.2.0.42 off of their site anyway.

    Ow ic, the last time I checked (when the website was still working) they had it there, I guess not anymore. In that case it doesnt make any diff if the website works or not lol
