    Phone doing things, making and ending calls by itself

    Advertisement



    my phone is 8 months old. it has gone haywire, and is doing things by itself.

    looking at it right now, key pad unlocked, it opens up my messages, forwards them to people in my address book, makes phone calls, composes messages, saves a draft, on and on and on...

    it has already posed security vulnerability issues, and it has forwarded confidential emails to my clients. It has also gotten me in trouble with my significant other.

    i am getting a new replacement phone, but this is one of the most unique things i've encountered on a device. I don't even know the terms of this issue, to research it very well. so sorry if this is a re-post of an already known issue.

    No water damage, great condition phone.. etc

    sounds like the software on the phone is having an issue. I would say to reload the software from the PC but with the new phone on it's way wipe the handheld( after backing up of course) and call it a day.

    Is it possible your keyboard lock is turned off. Is this problem occurring while your BB is in or out of your holster?

    I had my bluetooth in my pocket yesterday and accidently called the last person I dialed because the button was pressed twice.
    It's not an iPhone addiction, it's insomnia!

    Do you have any downloaded programs on your phone?

    I'm having the same problem. See the thread "Help with 8100: Buttons Not Working and/or Operating By Themselves" I haven't tried reloading the software yet (I use a Mac), but I see you've tried that.

    Solidarity! Let me know (here or in the thread linked above) if anyone gets to the bottom of this.
