Keeping Full Brightness on Blackberry 8700

Comments

BlackBerry 8700 Top
One of the new features of the 8700 is the new intelligent light sensor that automatically optimizes screen lighting levels for indoor and outdoor viewing. In most cases the auto sensor works fairly well but in situations where there is no light or not much light we found that the brightness is not enough. If you’re new to the 8700 you probably were looking for the light button on the bottom right, but then you find out it’s not there anymore. It’s actually still there, but it is now labelled as the power button which can be located on the top of the Blackberry. It has three settings, press once to turn the screen to full brightness, press a second time to turn off screen, and a third to turn on the automatic light sensor setting.

    You can also turn set the “Automatic Backlight” setting to “Off” under Options, then Screen/Keyboard. Of course, that turns off the light-sensing feature all together.

    Anyone figure out how to keep the 8700c on at its brightest level? I wind up hitting the power button every time as I always like the extra bright screen. Would like to find a way to get the extra bright level on all the time that backlight comes on.

    Thanks Jim for your help, I had my setting to auto dim and it was frustrating as it just wasnt bright enough in the dark! Thanks
