Question about RIM BlackBerry? Curve 8330 Cellular Phone

Blackberry 8330 unresponsive to push any buttons

I too have the same problem with mine. In fact, this morning I couldn't even get the track ball to move on the screen. Now it at least does that. Fortunately for me, I have a bluetooth earpiece so I can still answer and make phone calls.
If you look under the track ball and the little red square is visible or looks like a watermark, you did get water in it.
the battery also shows it. On the bottom of the battery there is a small white label. It should have a red line through it. Mine now has xs.
The only "water" my phone could have come in contact with was possibly a drop that fell of my hand. This shouldn't have caused this.
I did go to Verizon today and they told me a replacement would cost 50.00 i thought I would come home open it up and see if I can't figure out myself. I'll let you know how it works out.
Did any of you find a solution?

You know the track ball was white when you first bought it right? the dirt and oil from peoples fingers dirty it up making it unresponsive. the silver plate around the ball pops out. when you get the ball out use an alcohol swab to clean it off. when its dry put it back in. also you should be able to get a replacement ball and plate from verizon. I know sprint usually carries them.

SOURCE: i have a blackberry 8330. does the jupiter fit in

I assume you mean the Jupiter Jack and not the planet. The Jack fits into the 2.5 mm round earpiece hole on the side. The planet is huge and will not fit into a blackberry.

The tracking ball rotates but it does not move over the icons on the left side. Is there anything I can do to fix this?


Depending on how comfortable you are with removing the trackball it's not hard to fix... you may have some dirt or grit interfering with the trackball and/or sensors. Take a small screwdriver or blade and gently pop the silver ring around the trackball off. This will free the actual trackball housing. Use an old toothbrush to clean everything. I also soaked the trackball in a little rubbing alcohol. Just make sure it is completely dry before reassembling. If that doesn't work you can purchase replacement trackballs from places like crackberry.com.

The roaming on my phone won't come off, I am at home, and the roaming is never on here. It won't let me text or call anyone.


go to your recent call history. at top of screen, right above where you would normally type in number to call, it will show line 1(your number or line 2( 000 0000 1234). If it says line2, use ur scroll ball to go up to line 2, push in track ball, change to line 1, should be working after that
