    Turning off automatic backlit lighting for Cingular Pearl

    Advertisement



    I'm getting tired of my phone automatically getting brighter whenever it "thinks" it's dark where I'm at. I know the other versions offer an option under the screen/keyboard setting that you can turn it off or on. I don't see that on this phone. Can someone please help me out.

    What operating system do you have Fan? If you upgraded to the newest OS, you won't have the ability to turn off Automatic Backlight. You can check in Options/Screen Keyboard to see if you have the Automatic Backlight option.

    I know this has been an issue for alot of BB users and some of them that I know have switched back to an older version. Im not really sure if thats a very smart thing to do, but this seems to be the only way to solve that issue. I hope they add that feature on their new OS version

    Unfortunately, as Peter said, the only options are to change to an older OS version or wait for the upgrade. Many Pearl users are not happy about this.

    dmatthewsfan, Welcome to PinStack.

    Are you sure that the screen get brighter when the Ambient light decreases. This is not the way it is supposed to work. It should be reducing the screen level as the ambient light decreases and increase it when you are in brighter light. And currently, the Cingular OS and all but the first TMO release do not have the option to disable the Auto-Dim feature.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.
