    hello folks,
    first time blackberry owner here, now that tmobile has sorted out how to mail me the *correct* blackberry.

    my previous phone was the motorola pebl, which also had a clock visible on outside. the pebl's clock was always lit up and visible, which made it super handy. i love the flip so far, but the clock on the outside goes dark a few minutes after i close the phone. ack!

    has anyone sorted out how to tell the flip to 'always show the external clock'??

    much thanks for any help with this!

    Haven't played with 4.6 but in 4.5 under options>screen there is the ability to extend the blackout time to 2 minutes. Don't know if 4.6 has an indefinite option. Also there may be a 3rd party app that will suspend the blackout. The reason for blacking out the screen IMO is that RIM is very well known for battery life. And having the screen on 24/7 would eat up battery like nothing. I use my pearl as my watch and I just pull it and hit any button and it lights right up. May be your best option for battery reasons.
