Moisture has caused a little short in between the contact under th keyboard.

I would recommend to open your phone and gently wipe any moisture under the keyboard..

1) Remove Battery
2) Remove 2 #6 torque screw from rear top of phone
3) Using a prying tool remove base of phone ( where the log of the phone company is
4) Remove 2 more #6 torque screws
5) Remove side chrome cover ( Snaps on)
6) Lever in between front and rear case and pry open gently
7) Wipe gently and re-mount in reverse order..
It should work

My blackberry won't send or receive either texts or calls. But I can still do everything else like browse the web or send bbms..


This problem could be due to the lack of GPRS service. GPRS stands for General Packet Radio Service, and it's what allows your device to access data. The first thing you should do is perform a soft reset. If that doesn't work, perform a hard reset. After both resets, check your wireless antenna signal strength. The antenna should show GPRS. If you can still make phone calls and access the Web, then your GSM service is still available. Try sending yourself an email . Does it work? If it doesn't, call your BlackBerry provider. Sometimes, your service could be delayed due to a billing problem or to downtime on the network.

My blackberry will not let me click on anything


Usually the button membrane under the track ball goes bad. If you're out of warranty try to remove the trackball and push the membrane back in place, clean it if necessary. There is a Blackberry Repair Guide that shows how to open a Blackberry and remove the track ball yourself. Once it is open it's as easy as peeling the membrane off the logic board, scratching its bottom with a flathead screwdriver. There are also third party blackberry repair services that will do this for you.
