tip: to turn on the lights for the back/menu/home/search buttons just tap the camera-shutter button!
Thx for the tip Whiskey!! It would be better if the lights would just come on when you touch the screen like every other touch screen on the market. If any of you programmers/app developers are listening or Verizon folks or Gods, wizards, wiches, wickens....can somebody please develope an update to make the stupid !@#$!@#$ lights come on when you touch the screen?? If so, you will have solved the only MAJOR issue I have with this phone and I will then be at peace
From what I can see, it's hard to get even lighting on the Droid. There are two bulbs on the right and left side that are fairly bright, it explains why your "back" and "search" keys are brighter than the "menu" and "home" keys.
I notice it a bit during the day, but at night, they appear even. It doesn't bother me at all, as long as the keys work and the light doesn't "bleed" onto the screen.
Mine are uneven, visible at a normal viewing angle, but no dice from vzw. They first didn't see a problem and acted incredulous that I did, and then the manager came out and showed me some phones that *didn't* have the problem while stating that that they did and it was common to all units. All-and-all a really frustrating experience, especially after my first attempt where they said they'd email me but didn't...I guess if you have a screen issue, they can just look at it, say "what screen issue?" and you're sol.
oh well. I decided to keep the phone because otherwise I love it. I'm completely annoyed at Verizon though (and going to another store isn't really possible for me.)
And on further thought,,,,I'm going to outright return it. If they won't exchange it, I'll cancel my data plan and jump back to my little LG dumbphone. (cringe) Wait the month out and see what gets released, then reconsider the droid in the new unit does not have the same problem,
This shouldn't reset the upgrade clock as I wouldn't have actually upgraded in the case. Right?
