    Flickering light.

    I was wondering if anyone has had this before.
    Sometimes, my BB's backlight flickers randomly. I dont think its a OS issue.
    Has anyone had this before? Do you think its a hardware issue?

    thanks in advance

    I also get this, usually when the back round color on the screen is white (SMS,BBM,Phonebook).

    Just wanted to let you know that you are not alone!

    I think it's the ambient light sensor going crazy, but I could be wrong..... It seems that even going from a shadowed area to a lighted area triggers it.

    Flickering light usually happens on OS .114
    It's a verified problem of the 9500 leaked .114 OS along with other bugs...
    I know so as I have been messing around with .114 a week or two just before I got back to official .113 (and also confirmed this with other users)
