External LCD light?


Feb 7, 2005, 10:29 PM
I've been testing out the new Samsung 890 & so far so good. 1 issue I have is the external LCD screen. It's very difficult to see unless the backlight is on, and I don't know/can't find a way to keep the backlight on all the time. Is there a setting to keep the external LCD on? I thought the manual said to turn off powersave and I did, but it still didn't work. Help me out, if you know. Thanks.

you can't keep it on the whole time...even if you could you're battery would go out real quick

with lg's and motos you can click the side button real quick and it will light up
with samsungs...you need to click the volume button and hold it for a second or 2...then it will light up...

thanks, i'll go ahead & tinker so more. do you happen to know how to download free ringtones?

i downloaded a midi ringer from brewbackups & sent it to my samsung 890 using the email method to vzwpix. the transfer works fine - the midi file is in my phone, i can hear it play, and it's saved in "my sounds" but when i try to set it as a ringtone it gives me the msg "cannot assign non-drm content as ringer." is it the midi file that's the prob? or is it the samsung? or something else? i hear that the lg vx8000 and audiovox 8940 can get the free ringtones via this method, so what's up w/the samsung?
