Default Curve 8330 KEYBOARD illumination

Please Login to Remove!

Not the display/backlight, but the keyboard itself:

Is there any way to control the lighting of the keyboard? For example, at night in the dark, you can't see the keyboard when typing a text message or email.

Is there a native ability or any 3rd party software out there (such as BBLight) that would allow manual configuration of the keyboard's lighting?

Beyond this, what controls WHEN the keyboard lights up? I know I've seen it light up at certain times, but does anybody have a definitive answer on what controls it?

Thanks.

You're saying yours doesn't light up in the dark??

The keyboard is controlled by a light sensor. It is located in the upper right where the LED indicator is. You should be able to cover it with your finger and the keyboard should light up. I just tested mine and it works fine.

No, I wasn't saying it didn't light up. I was trying to find out if there was a more forward way to control the manual light-up process.

In digging a bit more, I think I can accomplish what I'm looking for using both BB Light and the Screen/Keyboard (autobacklight) settings.

We'll see. Thanks for the response.

There is nothing that will control just the keyboard light separately.
