Screen keeps blacking out in the sun

i just bought my blackberry bold 9900 last night and this morning i experienced the screen dimming so very low in the sun that you can't see anything. this make it useless until i covered the sensor with my hand.

i did not tick the option to dim my backlight but this still happens even after reboot, please do tell if there is a solution!!
