Default 8707 Time Out!

Please Login to Remove!

I have recently (finally) upgraded from a 7230 to an 8707. The 8707 is great and a real step forward for me but for one thing. I find it so irritating that Backlight Timeout takes the berry to a blank screen. For various reasons it is important to me to be able to glance at the screen to see if I have any mail or texts. I know that with the screen blank, a red flash instead of green shows me there is a text, but a received email will not show until I activate the screen to check. It may sound petty but the way I operate it's important to me. What I want to know is whether any Blackberries subsequent to the 8707 or equivalent have a sleep mode whereby it is possible to know of any communication received at a glance, because I will consider buying another BBerry to get this facility back.
Thanks, Alyn.

You can get the red flashing LED for all events. In Profiles check under Messages and make sure Repeat Notification is set to LED Flashing.
