When attempting to use keyboard to enter data to date book or address book - get weird results.
Datebook: When initiating or editing any entry in datebook, pressing (even touching) any character key causes cursor to jump to a new "floating appointment" line, which accepts exactly one character. If you press a second key, you get a second new FA line, which accepts exactly one character, and so on.
Address book: When entering text, the last two keys in each row cause unexpected jump to bottom of page - no character is entered.
When using Memo Pad, all keys/characters work just fine.

Re: Keyboard data entry
Sounds like a classic problem for a driver/firmware update.

If it still doesn't solve it you might need to format it and reinstall everything from scratch.

For the keyboard not working please visit a hardware service center. For the meassages sent randomly without telling, first you need to take a back up of the critical data on the hand set and do a wipe handheld and then restore only the address book and check if it is sending the messages randomly if so then reinstalll the OS.
Personally, if there is not much on the BB, entering the other 3 bad passwords with start a Master Reset on the unit, and that may fix your problem with the keyboard. If you have data on the phone you want to save, I would try syncing it first before doing the master reset.
Something similar happened to me due to incorrect periodic entries in the Datebook, try disabling all elements in the Hot Sync, try it, and if it works, then add them one by one until you find the offending one, then focus on clearing that DB. (Actually i simply stopped synching Datebook since i didn't wanted to loose all the history of appointments i have).
method1: The easiest way to do this is to sync your Palm Desktop data with the PIM on your Yahoo account. It's free so if you don't have a Yahoo account sign up and get one just for the transfer. Once your DateBook data is on Yahoo there is a simple to use option to sync Yahoo to Outlook. once all your stuff is in Outlook it will ActiveSync to the PPC
method 2: install the Outlook and then the Palm sync conduits and sync their datebook, notes, tasks and contacts to Outlook. install Activesync and sync the pocketpc and they get their data. you can also use pocket mirror software for this. method3: Install ExtendConnect from Extended Systems. Then sync first with the Palm. Then sync with the Pocket PC.
Simple fix for a corrupted Date Book sync error (at least it worked for me on my Treo 650).
1). Turn off 'Show Calendar Event' in the Phones 'Options - General Preferences' menu.
2). Turn off phone.
3). Set the Date/Time to the maximum limits (12/31/31) in Preferences.
4). Open the Calendar and view the maximum day 12/31/31.
5). Select 'Purge - (Delete events older then 1 week)' in the Calendars Options menu.
6). Reset the Date/Time to the current day in Preferences.
7). Hotsync (Desktop Calendar overwrites handheld).
8). Hotsync again to make sure you don’t get the error (Synchronize the files).
The attempt to open the database failed.
Date Book application database is not found. Please invoke the Date Book application on the handheld once and re-synchronize.
- Not Synchronized
