Blackberry curve 2 trackpad

 

If you get your phone wet and the buttons stop working, you might want this information. The symptoms this solution works for would be when your phone powers on, display works fine, and trackball responds, but button presses don't work.

Some forum posts say to put your phone in a bag of dry rice, put your phone in a warm location (like inside your computer case - not in the oven at 300 degrees!) and let it dry out for a few days, etc. That's all fine, you can do all that and see if it works.

hi! my blackberry curve keyboard and the black thing is not working! i did not get it wet. i left my phone for 2 min... when i got back nothing was working!!!! i need help!

Blackberry curve 2 trackpad

With the new 8520, BlackBerry is targeting mainstream users rather than those who would traditionally buy a smartphone. This is reflected in it's price as the handset will be available for free on £25 a month contracts or alternatively pay as you go users will be able to get their hands on it for around £200, which is pretty cheap by smartphone standards.

The 8520 will look instantly familiar to anyone who's used one of BlackBerry's Curve handsets, except for one new addition. BlackBerry has chosen to introduce its new optical trackpad on this phone. This replaces the company's iconic, mini trackball, or 'pearl' as RIM liked to call it.

RIM's representatives have indicated to us that this new trackpad is likely to be used across all new Curve devices mainly because it has no moving parts and so is less prone to dust and dirt. This being so, it really needs to deliver the goods. We've been fairly unimpressed with optical touchpads on devices like the HP iPAQ Voice Messenger , but thankfully the one on the 8520 is in a totally different league. It's a pleasure to use as it's both accurate and responsive and really we didn't miss the old style track ball at all. You can also adjust its horizontal and vertical sensitivity to customise the speed at which it zips around icons on the screen.
