    Somewhat dumb question, but...

    Advertisement



    what key do you guys (and gals) use to wake your Pearl up?

    I'm a noobe. When I hit the "end" key, if I was looking at a web page before the Pearl's screen dimmed, it wakes it up, but takes me OUT of the web page I was viewing. I can always click on the Browser button, and get bgck there, but that seems like an unnecessary hassle.

    If I hit the "Escaoe: key, it also causes problems.

    For some reason, those seem the most likely keys to use, or jiggling the pearl (roller ball) itself, but that doesnt' work!

    Sooooo.... I'm asking..... WHICH key do most people use to simply turn on the backlighting, after it's dimmed???

    Thanks!

    On my BB, dont know if the pearl has the same feature, I hit the left button on the very top of the phone, near the speaker. This will scroll through the light settings, 0, 50 and 100%.

    Space bar on my curve, or just push the "pearl" button
    Color---it's nothing but a hue of the rainbow...why do people place such importance in it?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I use the standby key or the trackball. I also adjust my screen settings to turn auto backlighting on or off.
