    My 270 (cingular) keeps turning itself on every few minutes, stay lit up for 2-3 mn (with lid closed) then dark, then repeats process few minutes later ! Spooky ! I have to open the lid and close it again to shut off the backlight... I had recently installed shareware downloads, Xmaster, Okey, fingerdial, Xlaunch, but got rid of these unnecessary silly apps, did a soft reset, but the dang thing keeps lighting up ! Anybody knows anything about this ?

    From a previous thread on this website, I learned that a pending SMS can cause such a problem. Check if you have any messages in the pending folder.

    First, Thanks Asimal. I also had a pending message in SMS.

    I would like to add, that the pending message was completely empty, no "To" or "Body". I guess at some time I pressed new and then moved on to another application and an empty message was created.

    Cheers

    Do you use TreoSMS, by the way? Or the built-in SMS app?

    Wow, that solved it for me also. I never would have figured that out! Thanks!
