    As the title implies, I'm curious. My arrow keys are ever so slightly brighter than the rest of my keys, and 2 demo units I looked at today had the same thing. It's noticeable in dimmer environments, obviously. Let me know how your unit is. Cheers.

    I'm not saying I'm right, but I think it's because theres a light on the bottom that runs the Spacebar, then another light for the keys.

    That actually makes a lot of sense and I never thought of that. I've been scrutinizing this phone as the first unit I got didn't have a working keyboard (as in, not a single key worked). The more I use this device the more I'm enjoying it.

    Mine will be here tomorrow, I know what your saying because I noticed it on a few YouTube videos and I determined it's probably an extra light because the space bar will light up even when the keyboard isn't supposed to so that tells me there's gotta be 2 lights.

    Why didn't the keys work? Was it a review unit?

    Nope, I bought it from Rogers and none of the keys worked out of the box. I had to wait 5 days for them to get more stock before I could swap it out. I highly recommend testing every single key before leaving the store.

    Uneven keyboard back lighting is not uncommon on BB PKB phones. My passport is the same. Not a defect, just a design anomaly.

    Oh dang! What about in my case? It's coming from Amazon, hopefully mines from the 2nd batch and doesn't have this issues I've been reading..

    You're good to exchange / return it if it's defective - I wouldn't worry.

    Good point. I'm leaning towards purchase with Bestbuy in store pickup to make sure its all good initially.

    How long will I have to exchange it if I do need to? I pray I don't have.

    About the Keyboard I do know a few review units had this problem but and update fixed them, so hopefully I'll have an update to download before I set it up. Don't want to do it all just to realize I gotta send it back.
