Rein In Your Backlight

The default backlight settings are good for your battery, but not good for reading in the dark.

You’re in a car at night and your BlackBerry device just gave you an alert that you received an important message that requires your immediate attention. It turns out to be a fairly lengthy email and as you read it, your device’s backlight hits its built-in timeout after just a few seconds of inactivity. What a pain! You’ll soon start going through meaningless trackwheel gyrations just to reset the backlight timeout.

Unfortunately, there is nothing in the default BlackBerry operating system to control anything about the backlight. Never fear, however, because there is a simple-to-use, free piece of software that allows you to control various backlight settings. It will even let you keep it on all the time!
