    Sorry if this has already been asked but has anyone tried changing the back light color of their keyboards yet with the old tape/ sharpie method? I think I might try it but I was just wondering if anyone had some success with it.

    Bah, no never done that one before! I guess you'd have to take the phone apart.

    This is a mod that has been done on previous generation BlackBerry phones (such as the 9700). Yeah, the phone would have to be taken apart.

    Yes exactly! I've done it on my bold 9000 and it was sweet, thinking about doing it in red to my "Q", "1" and "0" keys if your catching my drift... or all the number keys. I will try and post pics.

    Colors. Mostly likely red. I just think the red would clash very well with my white Q10

    You should do a how to video on youtube if you figure out how to do it. I would love to do the number keys on my Q10 in red!

    FYI clash means the two colours don't go together well. I'm assuming you mean that the two colours would go very well together.

    Clash: (of juxtaposed colors) to be offensive to the eye. Source

    No, it's not possible. It's a hardware limitation. You can't change a hardware limitation by downloading software. That would be like "downloading more RAM".

    That is correct... that would require all the backlit keys on the keyboard to pretty much be an led light kind of like the notification light. which I'm pretty sure they arent... but it would be cool if it was. if only :/

    I didn't realize they weren't led lights... Shows how much I know about tech lol. It's why I wouldn't even attempt this without a video.
