Yes several times but nothing.
I even called Sprint tech support and they could not figure a solution.

Sounds like a hardware malfunction.
Have you tried a hard reset? Or how about reflashing the shipped rom?

Re: backlight will not turn off

i was hoping this to be the last choice.
Do you loose all data in hard reset?

Re: backlight will not turn off

let me get this straight,
if I hard reset, does it come back to the original sprint set up?
or I have to install all the sprint programs after?

thanks

If you have never flashed a custom rom or radio on to it, when you do a hard reset it will return to brand new out of the box condition.

Re: backlight will not turn off

yes, you have to unlock the phone first. Instructions here. Touch Pro CDMA Hard-SPL brought to you by CDMA Raphael Elite Team

I recommend Mighty's Rom. His is most popular. Here's a link MightyROM6 -- www.MightyROM.com [Windows Phone® 6.5] [Final]
But everyone has different taste. You can check all the different roms out in the upgrade sub-section here http://forum.ppcgeeks.com/cdma-tp-development/

Let me know if you need any help with it.
