Question about AT&T Cingular 3125 Smartphone

1 Answer

I have a Cingular 3125. When I open it, the keyboard does not light up and I can't see the numbers/letters in the dark. The keyboard backlight does come on for a few seconds when I get a call, so it is working, but I can not find how to reset the length of time for it to stay on when I open my phone. Can you advise me?

    Thanks. I went o settings - power managemnt - backlight - and turned of light sensor. That didn't activate the keyboard backlight. Then I changed the "backlight time out on battery" to 60 seconds, but it didn't activate he keyboard backlight. I cycled the phone off and back on, but still no keybord backlight. What's your next suggestion?

    I want another expert to assist with this problem. If there is no setting that will correct he problem, then it's got to be a software problem and there should be a way to fix it with a new software download instead of paying for a repairman to fix it.

    So are you going to charge me $6 for telling me to contact a service center?

Hi,
There is a in built light sensor.The light works only when the light sensor detects the the place where you are using is dark.When using mobile in bright area there won't be light in keypad.
To change the the settings go to
Start > Settings > Power Management
In this you can change back lights etc
Thank You

    Hi,

    There may be a software problem also.The service centre people will tel exactly what is the problem so only i suggested you to go to a service guy.They will reinstall the software before they remove the parts.So you need not worry about that

    Thank You

Want to turn on back lights for keyboard to see while typing in dark


I do not believe the Probook 4440s has LED lighting for the keyboard. The key combinations Fn+F2 and Fn+F3 keys at the top of the keyboard control the monitor brightness (backlight). The keyboard is spill-resistant.

You need to attach an external keyboard with backlighting or a USB light to see your keyboard in a dim environment.

I wish that I could be of more help.

Hi i have a cingular 3125 smartphone and it wont connect to my windows 7 64 bit pc i would like to connect this to active sync so i can put music on it can anyone please help thank you


Greets - You can't use ActiveSync with Windows 7, you have to upgrade to Microsoft's Windows Mobile Device Center.

You can download it from Microsoft HERE.

Good luck with your phone.

Some letters of the keyboard wont function especially the backspace.


Try this.
It stumped myself and some true experts once. We were having problems with the keyboard in a darkened room.
There is a Function ( "F" or "FN") key on the lower left of the keyboard. It's labeling is often blue in color. In low light conditions, you cannot see the blue coloring. It is used to turn a section of the keyboard into a calculator. That section will have dark blue numbers written on the keys that change function. For example the K may have a dark blue number 2 written on it. In other words, When you type the Alphabet you come up with some numbers substituted for letters and not all of the keys may function. Give it try.
Best Regards,
Mark

Dark screen


try this, on the laptop keyboard on the bottom left cornet, there should be a button that says 'Fn' written in 'blue'

also on the keyboard, there are secondary buttons, if you look on some off the buttons on the keyboard, there are some pics, numbers letter etc written in blue on the buttons, look for one that has a arrow up and beside that on the same button a picture of a sun, when found do this:

Hold Fn and click on that key with the arrow pointing up with picture of sun and tap that button repeatedly to increase back light while holding the Fn button down firmly
