    Now the whole keyboard is unresponsive. only the trackpad works but I cannot hit enter with it. I tried a hard reset pulling out the battery. and even re-installing the software and nothing happened.

I would have thought if a software update did not fix this issue that it is a fault in the hardware. Contact your network/point of purchase to see if you can get a replacement.

I can not pair my headset HS820 with my BB 8520. My BB does not recognize it...what can i do?


First Ensure that your Blackberry 8520 is in discoverable mode (Settings>Options>Bluetooth) once in Bluetooth hit Menu (the button to the left of trackpad, Select options to turn Discoverable on, once you have done that ensure your bluetooth is in Pairing mode (solid blue light, except Plantronics brand which will alternate Red and blue lights) then have the device search and it should find it, select connect, then enter the headset (typically 0000 unless Bluetooth owners manual says otherwise) and it should pair just fine from there

Hope This Helps!

I've got the Blackberry Curve 8520... Yesterday the 'ALT' key got stuck, and wouldn't come off, so i done a battery pull... but when i turned it back on, most of the keys didn't work.... so i cleaned the...


Yes, your never suppose to put it under heat to dry, nor put any type of spray because spray obviously contain water, which kills your phone. So, if even the battery isnt orange indicating 'water damage', the keyboard itself is damaged. If possible, which is the best solution: you should call your cellphone provider and tell them that your phone all of a sudden stopped working, and most likely they will look into getting you a new phone. But dont tell them what you did, because they wont do anything about it after. Also, connect your phone to Desktop Manager on your computer and back up on all your information (phonebook, bbm contacts, ect.) so nothing gets lost, if anything was lost.

Good luck,
