Angry Screen Brightness

Please Login to Remove!

Ok I recieved my Pearl about 2 weeks ago. I noticed that once and a while the entire screen changes it's brightness. I mean it goes almost half the brightness. Is this a setting? OS issue? And its not regular I cannot make it do it. I just notice that I mioght be texting and the screen just gets dimmer.
Very confused


PS The forum is just the greatest!!!

Default

it has to do with the ambient light. there is a sensor in the same window area as the led and it determines if you need more or less brightness, and if the keypad/trackball needs to be lit or not.
