Why does the backlight shut off automatically after a short time
Motorola EX124g backlight settings
Why does this phone shut off automatically after a short time, then have to use the side button to turn back on ,does this phone turn back on by pressing the front buttons.
I unlocked everything possible and yet this phone still shuts off auto, still need to turn it back on by pushing the side button, why cant i use the front button to reactivate?
The phone doesn't turn off, only the backlight shuts off. You do have to use the side button to turn the backlight back on.
You can adjust the time before the backlight by going to:
Menu -> Settings -> Phone -> Backlight.
The maximum time of inactivity before the backlight turns off is 59 seconds. Personally I don't mind having to turn the backlight on as much as I do having to unlock it each time. So I usually turn off the keypad auto lock.
Hope this helps somewhat.
