My soft keys are only usable by memory in the dark. Aren't they supposed to have some backlight?

Default Don't think so!

Sorry to say that the manual doesn't mention it (as far as I can see!), and mine certainly don't illuminate! Though, it would be a nice "touch"......

...please excuse cr@p Touch gag!


from SPVM500 to TOUCH to TOUCH HD to HD2....

Mine definitely doesn't, but I do wish it did.

they don't light up but it's no big deal. not like you can't remember their position for when it's dark.

I prefer them not lit.
Would be awful for them to be lit, while watching a movie, for instance.

Do It Youself, you could make a script on the phone to make the key's illuminate when you use them like a phone, then you crack open your phone and add LED's under the buttons and solder them on for power and so the phone can access the LED's.

I think this is completely unnecessary.

It would be nice if the lights would go on with the screen but go out after a while
But i don't like the idea to screw open my HD
