    Re: keypad not working

    Thanks for all of the suggestions Someone suggested that I determine whether it was a software or hardware problem so I backed up the phone so I could wipe it and start fresh...low and behold in order to wipe the BB you must be able to type "blackberry"...well that's a little hard to do when your "a" doesn't work...needless to say I got pissed and unplugged the phone from the data cable and gently slammed in down and said f*** it. By that point I had pretty much came to the realization that I was out of luck and going to have to buy a new BB. It wasn't too much longer when I picked up my BB to do something and kit the "a" key and it worked I don't know if the jolt of me slamming it helped or not, but I am just happy it is working again . Thanks again folks !!!!

    sierrasmom97, Welcome to PinStack.

    I wouldn't do that too often. Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with your BB.
