Switch off the light in bedside mode



The light of my BB 9700 (OS 6) switches off when it is in bedside mode.

How can I do it with the BB Curve 9380 (OS 7.1) ?


I thank you for your attention.

Re: Switch off the light in bedside mode

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

Actually, the switching off was, as I recall, a bug. It was supposed to work in that the display stayed on in bedside mode...otherwise, it's not useful as a bedside clock. Hence, I'd say that your 9700 has an OS level with the bug, and your 9380 is WAD -- Working As Designed.

Good luck!
