Okay for future references do not bring your phone into the bathroom :) because this can cause water damage to the phone due to the humidity in there. Anyways there is something you can do remove the trackball to find out how click here after its removed you can check for water damage or any water that has collected there if you do find water damage or just water turn your phone off! Next after that I would leave the phone in a dry place to let the water evaporate do not stick "kleenex" or paper towel in there because u can get peices stuck in there and can cause problems for the trackball later on if you really want to stick something down there to soak up the water use cloth that has no chance of getting stuck and leaving something behind so after that reassemble your trackball with the ring and remember dont force it or you could break the ring and it should work if not just post back and I'll be happy to help you again.

Cheers,
Kyle

I've had my blackberry curve 2 days - and all was working fine. During lunch today I put the blackberry in my jeans pocke for about 45 minutest, and when I returned to work, pulled out the blackberry, I get nothing but a red flashing light - and no picture screen. When I plug in the charger the screen lights up, but nothing opens/responds to the click of the rollball -- not even the power key. When I remove the charger, the blackberry lights up, shows the battery fully charged, and the red light at the top keeps flashing. And still no buttons work. The rollball works, but not the button itself. Please HELP.

Regarding the shower head: on one end of the hose it says something about a water shut off. The water doesn't come out of the holes at the end of the hose. It comes the sides of the hose.


I returned the shower head to ACE and purchased a different one (Waterpik) which I put on in less than 5 minutes. Why should I bother signing up and maybe not getting the question answered and possibly being charged and forgetting to delete the account for 1 question.
Sorry, but I took the easy way out.

Blackberry types wrong two letters on answer, trackpad, a etc.


Try Software. Most likely software problem, water damage would mess it up worse. Try googleing it, and useing blackberry support forums. On my old Windows Mobile phone, the ROM has many of those glitches. Your best bet would be a backup > Soft Reset > Hard Reset > Then check it. If problem persists, Do what i said above about the support forums, they will help you with software to reset keyboard

My blackberry world edition's trackball suddenly started selecting things as if I pressed the trackball even though I haven't. If I open email it clicks the links in it as I scroll past and reply pops up...


You might have one of three things wrong with your blackberry 1. something is stuck down there like a peice of plastic causing the button to seem like its being pressed all the time or 2. there could be water damage in there thats if you bring your phone into the bathroom with you while taking showers humidity is like cancer to phones it might not show up right away but it can happen 3. someone might of pushed the trackball so hard that it dented the button in this case i would take it in to get repaired. If it is one of the other two it should be an easy fix you can check for either one of these problems underneath the trackball by removing the ring that is around the trackball you can do this by carefully prying around it off then you should be able to drop the trackball itself right out of the phone aswell as any thing stuck in there or if there is water damage or any water down there I suggest you turn the phone off as soon as possible to prevent any further damage then I would just leave the phone in a nice dry place to get rid of the water then the trackball should work again same thing goes for removing anything that might be stuck down there after that is all done with you should be able to reassemble it remember the ring around the trackball only goes in one way so do force it or you risk breaking it.

Kyle

My sidekick "gecko" is not working properly. The trackball is not responding but selects things on its own.


More than likely, the trackball on your Sidekick 2008 (gekko) is really dirty.Overtime, dirt and grime gets in between the ball and the sensors.

It is really easy to clean it, you will need q-tips and IPA alcohol. No dis assembly is usually needed!

Check out the Video at the following link to see how the trackball cleaning on the Sidekick 2008 is done

I have never taken one apart but here is the link to a website where someone gives the steps to cleaning your trackball. The pictures are quite clear so you should be able to figure out where the magnets go by looking at them.

Not sending pics


You need to call your service provider and ask them to send you the MMS settings. Or get them online.
They will give you a PIN number and send the settings via a txt msg.
When you receive the txt. select SAVE or INSTALL.
Input the PIN when prompted.

MMS does not always work between networks.
