Default Keypad Question

Please Login to Remove!

I own a 8320 from T-Mobile. For the 2 months I have had it I have struggled to see the keypad lettering. It seems that the keys are so datk even with the light on.

I went over to ATT to look at their curve and seemed as if the keys were more visible or brighter. I did not have to strain to see the lettering.

Am I imagining this difference. I need to make my keys on my T-mobile 8320 more visible. They are simply too dark for my aging eyes. I am thinking about changing the keypad of my t-mobile 8320 for the one for the ATT (I believe 8310).

Any suggestions on my delimna. Are there brighter or more visible keypads for the 8320. Or maybe I am imagining things.

Also if I go with a different keypad, where can I get one from. I did a search and all of the third party vendors are selling faceplates and not the actual keypads

If this is just an issue of backlight brightness, go to options > screen/keyboard and adjust the backlight.

So it's your vision? Gotcha. No suggestions other than look for a BB that works for you. If you are talking about installing another keypad, your out of my league.

Well there are some disassembly instructions here in the FAQ section, along with pictures step by step.

Look here for keyboards, if any:
