    So I had to send my first 9900 away and just got a new one today. I just noticed that this one doesn't have a trackpad that lights up. It looks just like my 9700 trackpad. I'm sure I'm not the only one with this, who else has one like mine?

    I don't really see this as an issue. I did like the one that lights up, but it doesn't do anything special for my phone.

    I'm pretty positive you are the only one with a non-lighting trackpad, because we would certainly have heard if others had them by now.

    You might not see this as an issue, but it is... it's a huge issue! The illuminated trackpad is a trademark of the 9900/9930.

    My advice - take it back immediately!

    I have to agree with Phill - take it back. You bought a 9900 not a 9700. ob

    I have to agree with you guys. I think it was the heat of the day that did something to my head when I was looking at it before it wasn't lighting up. Now an hour later and inside, I see that it does indeed light up.

    I do noticed that my battery life is still garbage. Down 20% in just over an hour. But that's for another thread. I'm off to find one of the many battery life threads. Then to load 440 onto this guy when I get home.

    (Under further investigation I noticed that wikitude was on and searching for an hour)

    This is, I suppose, peripheral to the issue; will the colored TrackPad covers for the BOLD 9700 (TrueSupplier calls them "TrackPad Hats") fit properly and work on the 9900?


    Does the 9900's Illuminated Trackpad allow for a choice of lighting color? I am waiting for AT&T to offer a White 9900 and am hoping that Colored trim pieces and Keyboards become available soon.

    I currently have a 9700 with a "Stars & Stripes" motif that I am very fond of and I am willing to wait for a 9900 that comes closer to my preferences than the plain Black model available now.
