My old brick died and I finally decided to give the low end of android a shot.
I bought a Skinny mobile Huawei Landfire for 69 from Dicksmith.
First thing I did was unlock so I could use my vodafone sim,
and aside from that everything seems to be working except..

The screen turns off after 5 seconds of inactivity, so I have to press the main console key in the middle to turn it back on. If im in a textbox, I will lose whatever I have typed in. Its getting very frustrating.

I've tried all screen timeout settings, and checked itss not on ecomode or anything. All up to date.
So far no luck, any suggestions?
