    Hi! Bought the Classic two days ago and I am not very happy with the backlit keyboard. One half of the spacebar is bright the other half is much darker. And also the y and z keys are much dimmer than the rest.

    Is this normal? How is your keyboard?

    Thanks in advance for your replies!

    All keys are equally lit over here!

    It's not normal, you should ask for a exchange.

    not very even at all!


    I thought it was me being too sensitive to how rubbish my Classic is appearing to be.

    Mine is evenly lit, although there are some uneven gaps and light bleed. I have seen several reports of gaps and light bleed in various threads, but I don't recall seeing one with the problem you are describing.

    I haven't encountered any light bleeds so far - only the unevenly lit keyboards. I checked some devices at several shops and they all had this problem. Maybe this is a "local" issue, only in some areas? I for example live in Germany and we have the "qwertz" keyboard instead of the "qwerty" one...

    I have the uneven light across the keyboard. I could return it to ATT but admit everything else on this device is so fine.

    Mine is evenly lit, no issues to report with the lighting on the keyboard or the tool belt. If you are unsatisfied with it I would recommend returning to the point of purchase for an exchange.

    I had to send one Classic back to Amazon, the keyboard backlight was very dark and was almost not visible in the middle part of the keyboard. The backlight of the replacement is just perfect.

    Today I received a new Classic for comparison, guys, look at this. I can't believe that BlackBerry lets Foxconn build their phones like this! Where is QA!?

    How even is the backlight of the keyboard of your Classic?-img_20150416_140421.jpg

    I also have a screen gap on the top on the bright device. I live in Germany, I just ordered a second one to see if it has a gap. It doesn't but the keyboard backlight sucks so I'll just return it and keep my bright device with the gap.

    I have the same problem with my Classic - The J is very dim and the back-light is very sporadic across the keyboard and toolbelt. I've also noticed that the keys also feel a bit more mushy in the middle (F, G, H, J, C, V, B, M) whereas the keys around the perimeter of the keyboard feel very firm.

    Can anyone please comment if this is normal or should the keys feel the same across the entire keyboard? Thanks in advance!
