    on the 650 will something like sandman work? Or is there a command to turn off the backlight on the 650 immediately during a call? related to my other post, but I adjust the volume during calls which brings up the screen again if it's dimmed, but then I have to wait again. I also don't like people seeing who I'm on the phone with, so I always like to turn off my screen.

    Never mind. Installed sandman and it works perfectly. I mapped it to the option phone button. turns off the screen and keyboard instantly. works like a charm.

    As an alternative try ScreenCare. It has an automatic screen blacking mode for phone calls. It will also allow you to continue to use the volume keys during a call. Something sandman does not allow you to do.

    HUh? I thought there was a new option somewhere on the 650 to turn the backlight off during a call? Anyway, Treoguard should work too afaikafaikafaik...

    Just use Option-P. The lowest setting turns the backlight off completely.
    Otherwise, the backlight will turn to half brightness after 30 seconds, and completely off after 1 minute.
