    Question Backlight Question

    Advertisement



    I apologize if this has been asked already, I attempted a search but didn't come up with anything. When the backlight is off & I receive a new email/text is there a way to have the backlight come back on automactically? I've looked under options but perhaps I'm not looking in the right place? Any help would be appreciated.

    I don't think there is an option for this. The reason the backlight goes off by itself is to save battery life. I know you can have the LED set to blink when you have a message that has not been read. This option would be found in your profiles menu.

    Do a search for bblight. Its a free utility that allows a more granular control of the backlight. It might be in the Pinstack download section.

    Re: Backlight Question

    I was surprised to learn (from a friend who is a new, first-time Blackberry user,) that there is no option on the Blackberry to set the backlight to turn on automatically when a call is coming in. I seldom use my Blackberry for voice, so I have never had a need for that feature.

    I suggested he try BBLight, and he installed it. However, he tells me that BBLight doesn't have that feature either.

    Does anybody know of any additional third-party applications that would solve that problem?

    Re: Backlight Question

    I think I found an answer for my own and emonique333's questions.

    Pocket Day includes the features
    Enable Backlight on Alarm - turns the backlight on whenever a sound based alarm goes off
    Enable Backlight on Email Receipt (great for 7100 devices)
