Yes Caspan, I know all about it! I've been a blackberry faithful for a while now! My question was- Is there a way to keep the trackball, and keypad lit while the device is being used, no matter the lighting. My 8700, 8800, 8830 8300, and 8310 all had the option to do so! The Bold however does not. Whether with auto dim on or off, the keypad and trackball go dark after a half a minute or so. But what can ya do, every drop of battery juice is valuable I guess to this monster.
