First try repeatedly pressing 8 key while at Home screen to see if problem is permanent or intermittent.
Pressing a number key at Home screen will cause the phone to display 8 if any press is recoginized/dialing.

If it is intermittent, then it is likely a hardware problem. Disassemble phone to keypad/phone printed circuit interface. Clean interface with alcohol or clean pencil eraser and disconnect/reconnect any cable interfaces. This may be worth a try even if key is not intermittent.

If this doesn't work or you don't want to disassemble, you can try a phone Hard Reset. See my other solutions on how to do a Hard Reset. Basically, hold down both left and right softkeys while turning on the phone. A Reset screen will display. Note all personal apps and data you added to phone since new is lost.

My blackberry trackball and keypad stopped working. I can scroll with my trackball but not click and my keypad does not respond. How do I fix this?


the trackball need to be clean or replaced as for the keypad it may need to be service but it might be a software issue and the OS may need to be reflash so it would be best to take the phone to a mobile shop and have it diagnose.

Re: Bug with Phone virtual number pad
I've found the answer to this problem!

Part of the problem is that the screen blacks out shortly after a call is connected.
When that happened I pressed the green phone button to get the keyboard back.

This keyboard image is a dummy. It visually responds to your touch but does not send the signal.

After you dial and your call is connected look at the bottom of the screen and you'll see that the normal menu tab changes and appears with the number 5 and letters jkl on it.

Pull it up with your finger. THIS is the keypad you must use when within a call to send number signals. I tested it and confirmed that it works.

If you have pulled up the dummy keyboard by pressing the green call button from within a call then simply hit the BACK button to see the real keypad tab.

If the screen has gone black and you need to light it up again then you can press BACK, HOME, or MENU to see the real keypad tab -- press anything BUT the green call button (which will give you the dummy keypad).

This dummy keypad is a true design flaw but knowing how to get to the functional one makes it an annoyance not a hindrance to using the phone.

Key pad


open the front key face by placing a card on the side of the phone. careful not to poke it harder as there are some chips inside the front slide. once it is open, clean it or try to adjust the keypad face then place it back. If problem still exist, bring it to the mobile center for repair.
