Can I Configure the Backlight on my Samsung SCH-S380C to stay on longer?
You can change the display and keypad backlight settings. From the standby screen, press Menu > Settings > Display Settings > Backlight. Select Main Display or Keypad backlight settings and highlight the duration: 10, 20, 30 or 60 seconds. Select Charging and choose from Always On or Always Off. Press to set the duration.
You can adjust the brightness settings for the display while in the Backlight menu. Select Brightness and use the Navigation keys to adjust up or down.
