Background Display

Backlight

To protect and preserve the LCD screen display, the phone's backlight is automatically turned OFF between the hours of 9:00 PM and 7:00 AM if the phone has been idle for over 30 minutes. The screen will return to its configured mode at 7:00 AM.

By default the backlight timeout period is set to zero, that means never timeout between 7:00 AM and 9:00 PM.
Users can configure a different timeout period by updating the Backlight Time field to a value greater than zero. Note the value is stored in seconds.

When using your own wallpaper on Xstim phones, please be aware of the following limitations:

  • After applying the new wallpaper, the phone display does not update immediately. Double press the Conference/Menu key, then press the Back softkey to exit. This will force a refresh of the LCD screen.
