Default brightness and on/off button

Please Login to Remove!

On my 8700 you could brighten the screen (even if it was otherwise set to 100% brightness) by holding down the on/off button for a second. When I do that with my Curve's end-call/on-off button, the button either acts like an escape key or, if I hold the button down much longer, it (not surprisingly) turns the unit off.

When I reset the Curve, and the hour-glass routine appears, the screen brightens at one point considerably over the level of brightness that its settles down to (again, even with the brightness setting in Screen/Keyboard options set to 100%), so I know there's a way to get the screen brighter. What's the button for this purpose if the end-call/on-off button doesn't do the trick?
