    if you're using smart backlight, the keypad backlights will only come on in low light situations.

    to test, put your finger on the sensor and it should come on..

    After a couple of weeks of use, my keypad light went out suddenly. I had the Smart feature disabled (it wasn't very smart to begin with!) and it had been working fine.

    I took it back to Verizon this morning. They tried a hard reset then gave me a brand new Q. Sounds like there may be a lurking problem.

    thumb might also work.. :}

    (ps. I have been using the smart backlight for a while & do not see significant difference in the battery life)

    I think it was intended more to be easier on your eyes in dark areas...

    Candlelight helps with the battery life on mine, but it sucks when trying to view something in a well lit area.

    Candlelight does not play well with the Q9's when smart backlight is active... besides that, it's the same thing so why install it on a Q9.
  19. the 9m has two sensors, does the 9c?
    my smartlight is not being so smart anymore....
