Unfortunately, I do not know much about T-Mobile. I'll ask a friend to see if he has the same problem.

I have tried everything in the settings but nothing seems to change it.
Also when I play a video it starts off very dark and dim for about 5 seconds and then it brightens up. This is really spoiling a really brilliant phone for me, please help. Thanks.
Go into settings and then to Power saving. Uncheck Background Color, that's what dims your screen on the net.

The other thing with the slight dimming when starting the video is the Auto adjust screen tone feature. You can disable that in Display, it's towards the bottom.
