    I have two Q's: one being about the dimming of your screen when you tap the home or power bottom. It is VERY DIMmmed and the screen wont respond. I have auto bright off. Could my screen protector be causing this or the Belken Case?? Or is this a bug ??

    I think it's a bug because mine does that sometimes too. Auto-brightness is off on my phone as well.

    I've only seen this when I open Pass Book or when I triple click and zoom the screen (happens by accident mostly).

    For my curiosity, is there a particular reason to have Auto-Brightness disabled? If having it enabled fixes the situation, why not enable? :confused:

    Very true, not enough people go by that on here with all the polls of which color iPhone or iPad they should get.

    Auto brightness on iPhone 5 works very well. If not, you might teach it wrong. Step 1: Set the brightness in dark room or bedroom, Step 2: set it in an office, Step 3: set it in bright room or outside. ;)

    Thank you. Do you disable it in step 2, outside and turn it on?

    Personal preference. I need it bright due to my eyes !
