    Buttons on the bottom no longer light but they still function perfectly fine wandering if there was a setting that I accidentally changed or if I should return to Verizon

    Button LEDs will operate according to the light sensor profile. Try to check the lights in the dark.

    I have had the Tbolt for a week now, and I do not recall ever seeing the buttons light up. Can someone actually verify that they do?

    I don't see anything on the phone for a light profile. Are you talking about dimming?

    I don't even have one and I can verify they do.;)

    They are light sensitive. They won't light up in bright light. Try hitting the top button and sweep back in. Assuming there is a top button on that phone.

    Every once in a while they seem to malfunction on both of my Droids, but I can always get it turned back on.

    On the Incredible they were much brighter and seem to be on about half the time.

    I am having the same issue. Because once I take it off the dock and restart it, I have used almost 10% of my battery life and would just put it on the dock again. So if I do root my phone, how do I get the buttons to work after it has come off the desk dock without restarting my phone?

    WORKAROUND: I installed the Genius App, you need to google it, the Genius app is the google clock and weather app that is used on the Droid X, once you install it anytime you dock it comes up, and no more problem with buttons.
