I880 External Display

On the external display after 3 minutes my screen goes dark and just shows the time. How do I get the external display to stay on the screen that shows the nextel screen that shows the if I have service and if I have missed calls or a voicemail. When it goes to the screen with just the time you can't see if you have missed any calls.

    Missed calls and voice mail don't display on external screen. I have other Nextel phones that do display this info. Is there a menu item we are missing that will show us this info?

    The external screen only displays the time, and goes dark after a minute. I want to see the time, date, signal strength and battery meter.

    I want the date and time on the external display. I have contacted Motorola tech support, they say it can be done. But haven't been able to do yet. My son also bought one, at the store the date and time came on the external display, when phone was shut off, it did not come back on. The spechs on this phone I printed from your Motorola site, and it says under External Display,( date and time display) If it can't be done, then why put it on the spech sheet of the phone.

Outside display screen will not show anything but the motorolla logo

Does anything show on the external display if you go to take a picture, but before you acually take it, close the phone and look on the external display as if you were taking a self-portrait?
To make fully sure, while the phone is closed, press a volume button - does anything show on the display? If so, the external display functions and it would be a setting that may have been overlooked.
Go to Menu > Settings > Initial Setup > Display Timeout
Menu > Settings > Personalise > Home Screen
