    none of the keyboard buttons work or the green, red scroll buttons. The screen lights up only if I attach it to computer or charger or takingit in and out of holster. Synchronizing it with my Mac seems to be working OK.
    HELP???????

Have you had any water damage? I guess the phone needs to be opened and you need to look at actual connections on the board especially under the keypad membrane. You can find opening instructions on the 8300 by a google search on many sites

This just happened to me- freaked out a little- until my mother, being the genius that she is, tried the ancient blow-dryer trick. Dried it from a distance for just a minute or two and it's working fine now!!! Never texting from the shower again!!! ;)

My blackberry curve 8520 constantly returns to the contacts screen and will not stay on the home screen. It keeps dialing numbers. What can I do?


Power you phone off remove the battery for at least a minute and power it back onIf the issue persist make sure none of the buttons appear to be stuck.

if all else fails since you probably wont be able to get to the proper menus to reset the software I would contact your service provider by the website or customer support line for the closest repair store.

Does the phone still have a vailed warranty? If so inform the developers and they will send you another. I the warranty has expired unscrew the back and gain access into the keypad, check the circut board for and miss soldurings and if you can't find any put it back together and take it to a repair shop

BlackBerry Desktop Manager application
2. Double-click Application Loader.
3. Click Next to start the installation process.
4. Type your BlackBerry smartphone password, if prompted, and click
OK.
5. Select the check boxes next to the names of the applications you want
to load, and then click Next
6. Click Advanced, and then select the check boxes beside Erase all
application data and Erase all currently installed applications
7. Click Next.
8. Click Next > Finish.
9. When the process is completed, the message, The loading operation was successful will appear. Click Close to return to BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

I Hope this information wil fix this issue

I had a similar problem, and the only solution is to change the trackball which cost between $5 & $10 dollars on e-bay. An easy and cheap fix, it comes with the tool to replace the assembly. A kid can do the job
