Question about RIM BlackBerry Pearl 8100
The keys on my blackberry pearl are looked. even when the phone rings i cannot answer it because the answer button is also stuck! the phone was working well before.
Hey everyone! so i had my blackberry wet! not even wet but some drops of water fell on it and the keypad didnt work, the trackball moved but didnt do anything when it was clicked.. all of the symptons many people here had! so my solution is not the idealistic one but this is what i did:
1. do a backup of all your information through the blackberry desktop manager
2. take it to a place where they fix cell phones! they know what to do
mines got fixed somewhere in hialeah, FL where there is a lot of little stores that fix cell phones and computers
the good thing is that i paid $35 which i loved since i still have my same cell phone with the same PIN!!
3. restore it in the desktop manager and everything is back to normal!
sorry if my answer isnt the one you liked but im 17 and i even cried when it didnt work after it got wet so good luck!

If you havent tried this before, do a hard reset, take the battery out etc. if you have done that or if this doesnt work, run the application loader on the blackberry desktop manager that is on that CD that came with the phone.
double click the application loader icon on the screen and the application loader wizard will pop up....just keep pressing next until it comes to a white screen where it says no actions are requried....select advanced. select the first box that says erase all application data and select next. after that, select the fist butotn and the check box below that says automatically back up.
at this point, keep clicking next. its going to uninstall and reistall all of your data. it shouldnt delete anything unless theres a system glitch. but bassically youre doing a master reset. unless you spilled water on the keypad, this should fix the issue.

When i tried to do what you suggested for the solution, in the desktop manager i clicked what you told me to and i was clicking on the next buttons when i came to a page that said device application selection and i had to add an application and i dont know what to select..
