    Very weird problems with my blackberry 8800

    Advertisement



    If I click with the scroll wheel my 8800 decides its a better idea to type "Uo" and if I try to hit the return button it would much rather type "Hl".


    I have no idea what is going on with this phone, but if you think about it for a second, I CANT DO ANYTHING with it, not even open emails if I cant click the trackball.

    I tried popping the trackball off and cleaning it. Didnt work. I tried turning off and taking the battery out for 10 mins. Didnt help.

    This just happened all of a sudden. I was mountain biking with it in my pocket and it worked just fine halfway through the trail, but when i got out and tried to check something, it started acting up!!


    Any ideas on what to do??

    I wish the bold was closer to being released here.

    ok I figured out how to wipe it clean using Jl_cmder. ANd I upgraded my Desktop manager to 4.6, then I installed a fresh copy of OS 4.5.

    Still messed up.

    I wish I had a t-5 torx bit you tare this puppy apart!!

    Might just be time to get something new....

    yeah, im guessing its the hardware. Last night I tore it all apart and cleaned everything off. But it still does the same thing.

    Shopping for a new phone now....

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~if it was in your pocket you might have gotten some sweat condensation inside your phone!

    It could be, but I doubt it. I was wearing jeans and we were taking it pretty easy.

    Either way im pretty sure this phone is no bueno.

    sounds like your "input language" is no longer in english. Try checking that out.
