My buddy has a TMO 8100, Its going absolutely nuts! It will call people on ... BlackBerry Pearl forum
Help!! 8100 going crazy!!1
My buddy has a TMO 8100, Its going absolutely nuts! It will call people on it's own send texts by itself. When he turns the radio off it will turn back on, when trying to scroll to an icon it will select one at random. Its like it has a mind of its own Has anyone heard of this? what did you do, I tried to wipe it and restore, it fixed it for about a minute, then right back to it.
Thanks for the help in advance!!
I would completley wipe it, 3rd party apps too and then reinstall with TMO's 4.2.1 OS. Did you use JL Commander to wipe it clean? If you used the BB to wipe it, it doesn't wipe the OS off, just your info and 3rd party apps. You may need a fresh OS installed. Hope that makes sense.
wow that is weird, what OS is it?
how old is it? when did this start happening?

Alt-LGLG gets you the event log and might give more info as to what's going on.
That will only work if he can get the phone to cooperate long enough to scroll to it.
I know, but that would still be what I'd try before wiping the phone.

I had the same problem and was told it is a 'known issue' with the 8100- a problem with the trackball. My carrier ended up sending me out a new 8100, & I haven't had any problems since. Good luck!

i believe it is 4.2, and i believe it is less then year old, and it started happening over the weekend.

I KNEW trying the ALT L G L G wouldn't work because it's inaccessible. I feel his pain. I had a SideKick 3 do this same thing to me a year ago. The trackball, D-Pad and keypad locked me out of the rest of the phone and I could only open the MP3 player. Making matters worse, I was not at home when this weird behavior was going on. I was able to replace the phone when I got back home though.
