    Has anyone else faced problems with this?

    I was minute taking in a meeting last week and thought i'd utilise my Berry to record notes for back up reference....so I thought.

    ...anyway it turns out that whenever i start the recorder, it would record for as long as the backlight was on! so about 2min..very annoyed

    When I eventually realised what was gong on, it took around 2 attempts to finally get the phone to start recording for longer...but now its left me with little confidence.

    anyone? or do I just put it down as one of the weird and wonderful things of a BlackBerry that just requires a battery pull

    Yeah that does suck about the voice recorder. One solution is to touch the screen every minute. Very annoying and tedious, obviously. But I have an app called LeaveItOn. It allows you to set the backlight timer for as long as you want for each individual app. That would definitely solve your problem.

    This is an interesting find. I did a search on the LeaveItOn app (since I generally 'hate' paying for apps) and found this:

    Turns out, BBlight will do the same for FREE and it is app agnostic.

    I never heard of BBlight but I know I tried another similar app and found LeaveItOn to be the best (for me anyways). I also like the message indicator feature. I got $25 worth of free software from mobihand so that took away the sting of paying for it.

    It seems like my 8330 had the backlight feature built in.

    BTW what does app agnostic mean?

    I think he means any app with issues of the screen timing out, will work with BBlight.
