    Thumbs down damn blackberry.. enter function problems

    Advertisement



    a few weeks ago i started a thread with a question about the track ball. i have found that the track ball is not the only problem...so here we go

    problem 1
    the track ball will scroll but will not press in for the enter function. this is not a big deal, i can just use the enter key. (yes i have tried cleaning it too)

    problem 2
    the top keys are acting like the enter button when pressed durring texting but not regular number dialing.

    when i try to type a text with any of the top keys (qw, we, tr,ui, op) it acts as though they are the "enter" button. i does not matter when i hit it, it will send once the key is hit. this happens in the first letter or in the middle of the word. so basically i cannot use my text.

    i have tried to "wipe" the system but i cannot because once i have to enter "blackberry" and once i get to the "e" it will cancle the command as though i had pressed the enter button.I am not worried about losing any information in the phone btw.

    i have restarted the phone
    i have taken the battery out of the phone to reset as well.

    i believe my OS is up to date, but i am not sure. i have the bb dm

    should i delete the OS and put a new one on there. this is something i have been trying to do but cannot figure it out (even with the online guides).

    any help would be nice. thank you

    Here is the link to your old thread since you are unable to do links yet (yeah it's the the newbie status until 10 posts) http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com..._problems.html

    I would really think it is a bad device. Looks like in your old thread you did a fresh install of the OS and didn't help. I would contact your carrier and see if they would help in an exchange.

    Re: damn blackberry.. enter function problems

    so i basically have to pay $300 dollar for another phone. :-(
    i love the blackberry but due to all the issues in quality that i have read about i do not think i will buy another.

    anyone have an altenative suggestion for a phone with a full "qwerty" key pad that is of better quality?

    very sorry to hear that. I would sell yours on eBay and get another from there. You can get the 8100 for around $100 used or $200 new.

    full keyboards - Treo's or other Windows Mobile devices BUT not as good in stability (or quality in my opinion). There are also a few Nokia's such as E62 and I think it's the E70 that is a flip up phone with keyboard inside.

    Or you can try the BB buy and sell forum here on the Stacks. Be careful of Ebay. Make sure the seller has a very good seller rating first.
    You could try to send your BB in for repair. I'm wap right now or I would link you. There's bb repair shop and some others.

    If still under 1 year you might try a warranty exchange.
