    This may sound silly, but sometimes when I touch my lock key to unlock phone to do something and the backlight on the keypad doesn't light. And I try to relock and unlock it again it doesn't work. Could there be something wrong with it.

    Not sure if it is an OS bug or just a fault but my backlight doesn't always function either and I have noticed colleagues with the same model with the same issue..

    Every once in a while the back light for the keys doesn't work. I just turn it off then turn it back on.

    What OS version are you on? I've had my BB ~6 months, and never once had a backlight problem with my 8330. I have OS v4.3. I did not do the upgrade.

    Just a hunch, but have you tried to cover the light sensor & see if the keypad lights up?
    Sometimes my keypad doesn't light up when I'm typing, so I just cover the sensor & the keypad lights up & stays on the whole time I'm typing.
    I'm not sure where the sensor is on your phone, but on the Pearl, you just cover the message LED.

    It's not the OS version because im running 4.3 and I have this same problem from time to time.

    I have the 4.3v that came with it, however I notice it only does this in the dark when I am watching tv at night. I am sure that has something to do with it.
