Question Keypad Backlight on BB 9630 won't come on...

Please Login to Remove!

I've read about the issues with the sensor, but my problem seems to be different. I've had this phone for 2-3 months and have yet to see the keypad light up! I've had it in lowlight, even nolight situations and the keypad has NEVER lit up. I've set the options to:

Brightness - 100
Timeout - 2 mins
Auto dim - Off
LED indicator - have tried on & off

I bought the phone from a "friend", already had trouble with it smelling like smoke, trackball not working right, finding out that you can't activate it w/o a data plan (I had planned to upgrade my plan eventually, I just don't have the money right now) and now I'm starting to wonder if it's got a defect too. Please help!

Thanks in advance for any replies, any and all thoughts on this are much appreciated.

If the keypad has never been lighted, then you bought broken device.
