Does the phone have an IMEI starting with "0044..."? If so, the update service won't do anything at all with it...

Suddenlink remote model 1056B03 how to turn off the key pad lights

Hi Fred,

Yes, this can drain your remote's batteries quite fast... Not ideal...

Ok, have a look on the back your remote under the model number 1056B03 it says that you can enable/disable the backlight by pressing the SETUP button twice, have you tried that?

Try that...Hope it helps.

N79 bluetooth not working

If the bluetooth is not detected on the menu the fault is on the software or even a fault on the hardware. If there is no activation of the bluetooth perhaps the phone needs a rebooting . now it is possible that the phone has hung up because there are errors in the software. So to reset remove the battery and the memory card from the phone. Using your PC , scan the memory card for any corrupt files or media files with virus- it is possible when they are downloaded from unsafe sites. If so remove or format the card. Copy only valid files to the card and do a scan before it is replaced. Now replace the card and battery and switch on the phone. If the phone hangs up or is slow when it is switched ON , then it is possible that the fault is relative to the software and will need a reinstallation. Possible hardware issue cannot be ruled out.
