    This may be a dumb questions- but I couldn't find an answer to it here...

    I'm BRAND new pearl user, coming from a Treo 755p. I'm used to hitting the red phone button to turn off the screen when I'm done say checking a date in the calender. Is there a way to do this same action on the pearl? I get done looking at the calendar and then I don't know what to do...the red button doesn't turn the screen off. Is there another button that does this?

    Thanks for the the ability to ask dumb questions....

    Welcome to CB!

    There is not a button to turn the screen backlight off. It does it auotmatically.

    If you want it to turn off sooner:

    Options > Screen/Keyboard > Backlight timeout > 10 Sec

    You can also hold the mute button in (the button on top)and put the phone in standby. Saves your battery! You still will get messages, calls, etc.

    AHA! finally, a question that i know the answer to! along with holding the mute button you can hold the */sym button to lock the keyboard and the backlight will go out within seconds. i had a centro so i know the transition from palm to BB such as the turn off button and vibrate all switch, etc, but my pearl is a lot better and cooler.
