    Buttons at bottom of screen, Lighted?

    The 4 buttons at the bottom of the screen, what determines when they are lighted? some times mine light up, but most of the time they are not. I have looked in the settings, but can not find any setting that controles them.

    Luck controls those buttons lol. They seem to light up when you unlock the phone and when the light sensor determines there's not enough light to see them naturally.

    Did you know: You can upgrade your Rezound to ICS without rooting?

    Fun Rezound Fact: The antennas for the Rezound are in the battery cover.

    Don't forget to backup your flash player install before they remove it from the Android Market.

    I've been told it's based on the lighting in your environment, meaning the buttons should glow in a darkened room, but that's not the case with my DX. The buttons seem to glow randomly. And there is no setting.

    The light sensor is on the upper left on the front of your phone (across from the front camera). If you cover that part of the phone, they will usually light up again, even in bright light. I've got to where I'm not as picky about finding them when they're hidden; they seem to respond just fine as long as I touch the general area for the one I want.

    I read in another post and it seems to be correct, that if you cup your hand at the top the will come back on at least until you move your hand.

    Yeah, glad they are not hyper sensitive cause it is a crapshoot if they come on or not.

    For me this is a big problem. Everything on this phone is great for me, but I am always guessing at the buttons at the bottom. The light sensor is not correctly calibrated. Why not? Basically the lights come on when I am not using the phone and they fail to come on when I need them to. I would just like the lights on all the time when I am using the phone and they can turn off when I am not.
    P.S. I am no expert in phones, I came from the 1st Droid and I am extremely happy.

    A tiny piece of black electrical tape over the light sensor right at the top of the V in the Verizon logo will force the lights on whenever the screen is on.
