Probably not the best place to put this question. Very few people will see it. In the future please start new threads with new questions. In any event...

Go into the Phone Application, click the wheel and select Options.

Then select Call Forwarding. If it is not there, please contact your carrier as they may have disabled it.

But what about poor kworley? No one answered that question!

I don't have an answer, either. Sorry.

I am not sure this is possible. The only thing I know of is if you press the power button twice the backlight gets brighter if dimmed.

Look for an application called BB Light. I use that and it gives you more flexability what you can and cannot do with the light. For example it has a setting so that when you pull the BB out of the holster the light comes on, comes on with any user activity, etc.

But why would you need these features with the 8700? It does these things anyway. I tried BBLight and it did not do anything useful for my 8700r.
The original question was answered twice correctly: turn Automatic Backlight off.
