Question about T-Mobile Wing™ Smartphone

1 Answer

Screen presses wrong buttons

Whenever I press a certain spot on the screen, it would click a totally different place. Lets say i press the start button, it would click the messages part. Or if I press calender, it would go to the start button. I tried to align the screen but that is not helping because the little four way thing would go to all four corners and just go back to the middle. Over and over, im getting frustrated, somebody please help.

Do a factory reset.
Use a program like PIM Backup (http://www.pocketpcfreewares.com/en/index.php?soft=1806)
Save the backup to your memory card, or back it up and copy it to your computer, the do the Factory Reset. You can then reinstall PIM Backup after the reset and use it to restore most of the stuff on your phone (contacts, call logs, text messages, etc.)

Factory Reset instructions:

•Hold down both soft keys (both above the send and end key's) and use the stylus to push the reset button in between the volume key and micro sd slot. Then the screen will turn on and tell you something to the extent of press "Send" to perform a factory reset. Hit send, and your good to go.

it does **** when things go wrong with your phone, but with a little patience, all will be well.

Please let me know if this doesn't work :)

I can't dial out.


The Phone application on the BlackBerry smartphone automatically converts phone numbers that include letters into the associated numbers.
To key a phone number that contains letters, press the right Shift key or the Alt key and type. The letters appear on your screen, but the BlackBerry smartphone translates them into the appropriate numbers when the phone call is made.
For example, to call 1-877-BLK-BERR (1-877-255-2377) from your BlackBerry smartphone,
  1. Open the Phone application.
  2. Type 1877.
  3. Press and hold the Alt or right Shift key and type BLKBERR.
  4. Display the menu and select Call 1877BLKBERR or press Enter. When the phone number is dialed, the letters are converted to numbers on the screen.
  5. To end the phone call, hold down the Escape key.
To return to the Home screen from any other screen, press the End key.
To lock the device, set a password. Hold the * key.
To unlock the device, press the * key. Click Unlock. Type your password.
To lock the keyboard, hold the * key.
To unlock the keyboard, press the * key

To switch the input language, hold the Alt key and press the Enter key. Continue to hold the Alt key and select a language. Release the Alt key to switch to that language.
To switch back to your original input language, press the Alt key + the Enter key.

I hope this helps

LCD/digitizer replacement


Unfortunately, when it comes to touch-screens, it's much more difficult to fix.

The reason being that the screen is placed in the chassis of the device - with precision, so that none of the parts in the device or the chassis/cover of the device itself is applying any pressure to any point on the screen.

If there is any point on the screen which is being pressed by the cover of the phone or any part of the phone such as a wire or PC board, the screen will be reading TWO inputs whenever you push a button on the screen. Most touch screens will lock up if it detects two points of pressure...or it will pick one input and run with THAT one. (Hard to say if it chooses the first or the second input.)

I have a Dell handheld PDA that I can't put the cover back on as it works sporadically when I tighten the screws back down. I know the general region where the pressure is being applied, but no matter what I have done, it just won't work. (It's not worth my time, so I haven't really continued working on it for some time now.)

Sometimes when I flex or bend the chassis of the PDA and I use the stylus on the screen, it'll work for a while. But then you grip it in a certain way and it starts going crazy all over again. When I bend the chassis by twisting it a bit, it releives the point of pressure and I'm able to use it normally for a while. Sometimes I tap the sides of the device to knock the screen back into place. (Although that can be harsh on the device.)

Quite honestly? I would take that phone to a service center and either have them service it or replace it. (But you most likely voided any warranty you still had when you opened it; if any.)

Not much that can be said for it unless we could actually physically inspect it. But this is the internet. :P

Try jarring the screen or inspecting the bottom side of the front cover to see if there is any point that is touching the screen when you secure it. Try removing the screws in certain, contained areas in a slow manner to see if releiving pressure in those areas might show you where there may be something touching the screen. Take it from there. Might consider using a file to file down the area that is touching the screen.

First and foremost, though... Just check to see if the screen is centered right where it's supposed to be.

Good luck with that. I hate touch screen repairs. :P

Buttons not working properly


So first try a hard reset. If that doesn't work try removing battery for at least 2 hours or overnight if possible.
