    Any suggestion on getting the keyboard backlight to return? I've cleared the log, done multiple re-boots and and pulled the battery multiple times as well and still NOTHING. All I have is backlight on the touchpad and screen obviously. When this has happened in the past, pulling the battery eventually worked.

    It would be nice to be able to make a call in the dark, lol. Anyone have any ideas? Could it be hardware as opposed to software? I'm running V.7.1.0.580 on Sprint if it matters.

    Thanks in advance........

    Not sure that I'd want to do that on a "maybe".

    Then take it to the Sprint store and have them check it out

    It's not big deal to reinstall OS, 30 minutes job at most. Keyboard backlight for me would be big deal, and OS reinstall would be one of first steps.

    Well, the psycho phone corrected itself last night. Out of the blue, the keyboard back-light appeared with no prompting from myself. Lets see how long it lasts this time.......

    Nothing else seems to be working. How do I wipe and reload the OS? Where would I get the proper OS for Sprint?

    Thanks
