Question about Samsung SPH-M500 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

Changing the amount of time the foreground is on

When my M500 is closed the date and time on the foreground screen is only on for about 10 seconds and then it goes black.  I have tried to go in under settings, but it will only let me change what the foreground is ( a digital clock, an analog clock, calendars, and others) but I can't get the amount of time to stay on.  I would actually like it to be lit as longs the phone is on

Iphone screen get dark in the middle of the conversation

Changing the auto lock setting will improve that.
  1. Click the settings icon.
  2. Click the general option.
  3. Press the auto lock option.
  4. Change the settings to your heart's desire.
The phone will dim 10 seconds before whatever the time amount selected is. For example, if you chose 60 seconds for autolock, in 50 seconds, it will start to dim.

Remember, changing that option to "Never" will drain your battery life much faster if you forget to lock your phone!
