Go to Menu/Display/Backlight/Keypad and it gives you the option of 5, 10, 15 seconds or Folder Open. The User Guide has it too.
I was going to take the phone back to the store to fix it or exchange it, but then I saw a User Review that said one of the cons is that the Keypad isn't backlit.

The deal with ringtones/volume on the A650
For some reason ringtones from modtones sound quieter than usual on all VZW flip phones. I don't know the complete reason but I just know thats the case (tried on mine, my friends VX 4400, my friends VX 6000, and one of my friends CDM 8900, and my old KX 414). All the times, the ringers from modtones were louder on my old KX 414 (my brother's phone now).
But I've also found that ringtones from MIDIringtones tend to be louder (louder than the a650's preset ringers), making it really easy for me to tell when my phone's ringing while I'm in a crowd (i.e. at school during lunch).
Hope that little bit helps!

Samsung SCH-a650 vs. LG VX4600
Is this normal? Does anyone else have this problem? Is it a defect in the phone? Verizon has replaced the battery once already.
Other than that problem, I love the phone.

What happens if I miss a call?
Hi, I'm considering getting a-650, but had a quick question. Since it doesn't have an outside display, what happens if you miss a call? Does the light blink for me to check, or do I have to frequently check by opening the phone?
Also, is there a way to 'ignore' an incoming call w/o opening the phone?

Ringer-ID/Distinctive ringer problem
When I download a customized ringtone from either Ringster or Modtones (via the Get It Now feature of a Verizon phone) and assign it to a specific person, everything works great...until I turn the phone off. When I turn it back on, all the downloaded ringtones assigned to different people are wrong. The phone actually advances the ringtone one place in the selection list. In other words the distinctive ringer feature is useless if the battery ever goes dead.
Verizon doesn't seem to have anything on this and the only help they have offered is, you guessed it...another phone!
Can you open the phone without answering a call? (in other words does Caller ID actually work?)
Does the Samsung SCH-A650 allow you to turn off "answer when opened" or whatever it is called so that you can actually see who is calling and decide if you need to take this call right now?
Get It Now Problems?
When I try to connect I get an error message saying "try again later (534)." Did anyone else have this problem or can help?
