Clock

Does anybody know how to stop the "clock" from fading out when the phone is not being used.? In other words, I want to be able to easily put it on bedside mode, look at my phone, and know what time it is.

Re: Clock

On my BB, clock options I have Dim screen checked.

Here is some more information, but this applies to your phone as well.

I don't know what you've tried already but hopefully this will help.

Re: Clock


No im sorry, but that just relates to the level of lighting before it blacks out completely. The clock still disappears after the same amount of time i have the phone set to dim when not being used.

Re: Clock

Agreed.  I have 2 blackberries and one does the same as you describe and the other stays dim.  The options are the same.  Not sure what the difference is.  I will check around.  This is while on the charger correct?

Re: Clock

thankyou. No, its whether charger is on , or not. There is a setting for how long the screen sdisplays without use, the default is 30 seconds. But I would like the clock to just stay on,  when im in clock mode, or also bedside clock mode

Re: Clock

I don't think you can keep the screen on like that while not on the charger.  The backlight timeout has a maximun setting of 2 minutes.  if there is a way, I'm unaware of it.

 

I'm able to keep the screen active while on a charger.  I connected my device to the wall charger and the clock pops up on the device.  I then hit the menu button and choose bedside mode.  The clock dims a little but the screen doesn't shut off.  Is this how you're doing it?  I have a 9350 and the backlit keyboard and menu keys go black after a few moments but my screen remains dim.
