    Either cycle off/on the screen or adjust the brightness settings under sounds and display

    I notice that with the screen black/locked, mine took a few seconds to light up after I slid the keyboard out - it wasn't instantaneous.

    I got my update this morning. Don't know if it matters, but I also cycled power off/on an additional time to see if I could get my contacts back...no luck there...

    Mine still lights up after the update, try taking your battery out for a minute and relaunch it

    I had the same problem. Turned the phone off, turned it back on, and it was fine. Give that a shot.

    This is what I had to do.

    just hit your power button to lock the phone and hit it again to unlock and the buttons will light up. you have to do this every time you power the phone off.

    I do have auto dim "ON" and the keyboard buttons and soft touch buttons will not light up in a bright room.

    Had the same issue, but not right after update. Just happened randomly today, so did a search for a fix , this page came up. Followed opgarlic advice to lock and unlock~ worked like a charm. Thanks.

    here's something i noticed. I think the slide-out keyboard is linked to the same sensor that is used when you talk on the phone that turns your screen off or some other light sensor. when there's a lot of light the slide-out keyboard doesn't light up. but when it's darker it lights up right away. what do you guys think? I tried it at my desk at work and when it's above my desk it won't light up, but then i put it under my desk in the dark and BAM...light up :)
