Keep backlight on when plugged in?

Is there a setting somewhere that will allow the backlight to stay on when the unti is plugged in?

Nope. There isn't.


There is an old app called BBLight you can get that will allow you to keep the backlight on for certain periods of time.

Re: Keep backlight on when plugged in?

I'm glad someone posted this problem.  Keeping the display on while the device is cradled was a useful available feature on all three of my pda/smartphones leading up to my purchase of the BB Curve.  The display doesn't even wake up for incoming calls or messages...  I hope this gets fixed on a future firmware update.

On the blackberry app world the screenlight app can let you quickly toggle this with just a click.
