Default Trackball lighting?

Please Login to Remove!

1. How does the trackball light up? I noticed mine comes on sometimes, but sometimes not. What causes it to light up?

I believe there is a light sensor so it only turns on when the lightning is dim.

It is light sensitive, that's why if you go the the phone profiles you can setup your ringtones (etc...) for both when the phone is in the In Holster and Out of Holster.

The trackball lights up under low light levels. it uses a light sensor located in the same place as the flashing led. You can't control it....it does it's own thing.

I have found a different option for the trackball. If you hit the send key to bring up your call log, then hit the options key to the right of the trackball, scroll down to options, select general options, and at the bottom should be ringtone lighting...change the option to trackball. This will have the trackball light up different colors when you get a call!!! I thought that was very cool but hard to find. I found it on accident one day! I hope this is something you were looking for!

Sounds good! Thanks for that tip. I didn't realise the trackball could display different colours - have changed this option so we'll see what happens when I next get a call.
