    Anyone else annoyed at how fast the screen dims when a text notification comes in? I drive for a living and i have it in my cup holder, whenever i get a text by the time i have the phone in my hand and go to slide the puzzle piece the phone dims. Its a slight inconvenience i'd like to change.

    Also since im driving i put it to speaker phone whenever i get a call. It dims after time and to hangup or switch calls i have to hit the lock button a few times to light the screen up, unlock and then hang up. Quite aggravating.

    Any help?

    Can't help you with the dimming problem, I know it sucks, annoys me also. However may I suggest text to speach? You can have your text messages read outloud to you.

    Go to settings > text-to-speach > check mark driving mode

    you can also change the speech rate and language. I personally prefer the english accent :)

    If you find a resolution to the quick dimming screen, let me know, thanks!
