    8120 Newbie

    Advertisement



    I'm having the WORST luck these past couple of days with my BlackBerry. First my brand new 8100 becomes possessed, so I exchange it for an 8120 and now I have yet another problem!

    I'm familiar with SureType obviously, but I'm having trouble with the 8120 SureType. When I'm typing and the wordlist comes up, how do you scroll?!?! I keep scrolling down but nothing is moving! I did a battery pull and still nothing! Is there a certain thing I need to do? Help?

    Hi, sorry to hear you are having poor luck. RIM has a demo vid for suretype.

    Basically it says use the scroll ball

    Sometimes when you scroll you need to move from left to right instead of up and down. I had the same problem when i first started using my pearl.

    Are you having any other problems with the trackball?

    Question How to change speed?

    Hey Bella,


    "i had the speed too low (i started out at 20 just to get a feel of the phone) and once i upped it for 60-70 it started working."

    I am a newbie to RIM how do you change the speed?

    Thanks for your help Charles.

    you have to change the speed of the trackball by going into options: screen/keyboard and scroll down to vertical and horizontal speed.

    good luck and welcome!
