    Smile Keyboard Trackball Refuses to work

    Advertisement



    I have had my Pearl about three weeks. Yesterday the keyboard stopped allowing input of commands. The trackball will move right left up and down etc, but pressing down will not initiate any commands. None of the ec=xternal device keys work either.

    When I take out battery and reboot it will come back up, but no ability to actually use the device.


    Any suggestions ?????

    try reinstalling the os it take a couple minutes and make sure you back up your pearls info first... but i would say try clearing the pearl and starting from scratch it sounds drastic but it is relatively painless. If you want help pm me or whatever i reloaded my os three times while deleteing superfluous files from my pearl so i think i can probably walk you through it step by step with out a hitch plus you will have the opertunity to remove all thos stupid preloaded locked pictures and excess lang files. Thats what i would do

    I would try reloading the OS, then if that doesn't work, contact Cingular for a replacement. I would take the time during the reload to uncheck any unwanted Language support in order to free up more device memory on your Pearl.

    Let us know if you need any more help on this.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~same problem here I just restart the phone instead of the 30 second battery out. Works perfect after. Have you tried to reboot your phone daily? Like when you get up in the morning before you get ready? etc...
