Exclamation Backlight Dimmer Question

Please Login to Remove!

Is there anyway to turn off the backlight dimmer so it wont adjust to the lighting around you? I couldnt find the option under screen/keyboard for some reason.

That is one of the original versions; I am quite sure that the recent versions include that option.

Check the top of the 8100 forum for a Sticky Thread on where to download the latest version of the 8100 handheld OS...
