    Icons at bottom of phone not lit up

    The 4 icons (menu, home, back, and search) are not lit up on my phone. Is there a way to control the lights?

    They only come on related to the ambient light sensor. If it's bright in the room, or there is natural light, they won't come on.

    I have a similar problem. Sometimes they come on and other times they turn off which makes it difficult to see them when needed. I turned off auto brightness and it makes no difference. For me they seem to turn off randomly and it is very annoying. This happens on both mine and my wife's RAZR.

    There is a light sensor eye near the top of your phone, just below the Motorola nameplate and to the left. If you cover it with your finger the bottom icons will light up.

    It will occasionally hiccup and need a restart. I never turn off my phone, so when it happens, I restart and it works fine again.
