Screen goes blank

by mobileuser100    Apr 28, 2009, 6:41 AM

I just bought 2 of the enV2 phones for my family account, and I see that the outside screen blanks out after a minute of non-use. I mean totally blanks out. This is different from any of the clamshell phones I've ever owned. So now when I'm at work and turn the bell all the way down (I have to do that in my office), if I get a call or text and miss it when it comes, because I'm away from my desk or just don't see the phone when it's ringing, when I get back to my desk I can't tell by glancing at the phone that there's a call or message waiting for me, unless I touch a button on the phone and bring the screen back to life. Is this normal? With all the other phones I've owned you could still read the screen when the back-light was off, but not with this phone. There's also no provision in the option to keep the outside screen's back-light on all the time, and even if there were, that would probably use too much battery power. Maybe this is just some new kind of screen technology, entirely different from what was used on my old phones--the screen looks fantastic, but this blacking out is a real problem for me and for my wife at work. Sorry for the long message, and I hope I've explained the problem in a clear way.
