    BB automatically "clicking" scroll wheel, without me clicking!

    Advertisement



    Say I can scroll over to the 'messages' button before it clicks automatically, it will open messages, open the first message it's highlighted on, then reply to it, and send the message. All without me touching it.

    This happens in any application/setting. It's as if a ghost is controlling the scroll wheel!

    Is my BB done? I have tried numerous times in resetting it (take out the battery, as it seems hitting alt+cap+del does not work anymore) and even WIPING the whole blackberry.

    It will call people without me wanting to, text people with blank messages. It's getting ridiculous.

    Thanks in advance.

    It actually sounds like your trackball is dirty or the switch is stuck down. There are instructions for doing this all over the stacks. If you don't feel comfortable doing this and your unit is still under warranty you should be able to get a warranty exchange done. If it is out of warranty then you should be able to find a shop that can do the work for you.

    I forgot that this doesn't occur ALL the time, but when it does it usually is very severe. Sometimes it's slight, and other times it's like the phone is possessed.

    Still sound like a dirty trackball?

    My curve was doing the same thing. I updated the OS, and its been perfect ever since. HTH.

    When in doubt, pull the battery out.

    It's not a sound, it's the action that would occur if you press down on the track ball. Not scroll, but press down.

    I have a mac, and can't download .exe files, so how can i get an update in NON .exe format?
