    i have the same issue, the 8703e has a track wheel on the right hand side of the unit, i'm having to go through sprint to obtain a replacement, the nearest option the rep could use as a replacement fail-code was track wheel sticks. as a precursor to the track wheel going out, it would move the cursor all about the screen, sometimes passing over the wanted option 6 times before i could finally luck out and select the item i wanted. rep stated could have phone out 2-3 days. best bet is replacement imo

Cant get main page to come up

Turn off Content Protection before manually erasing all data and applications from the BlackBerry smartphone, in order to avoid triggering the scrubbing process:

1). On the Home screen of the BlackBerry smartphone, go to Options > Security Options.
2). Under General Settings, go to Content Protection.
3). If Content Protection shows as "enabled," click the trackwheel of the BlackBerry smartphone and select Change Option to turn off, or "disable," Content Protection.
4). Click the trackwheel again to save and close.
Once scrubbing has been triggered, there is no way of stopping it. The process must be fully completed before the BlackBerry smartphone may be used. Removing and reinserting the battery of the BlackBerry smartphone will only start the scrubbing process again from the beginning.
The duration of the scrubbing process depends on factors such as the actual processor speed of the BlackBerry smartphone, the amount of memory that it has, and the actual memory speed.

How do I stop my Blackberry going on to standby

I don't know what you are referring to when you say STANDBY option, so I'll include what I know about the password option. Maybe you mean SECURITY TIMEOUT, or maybe your version calls it standby time..

Setting up a password for the device:
Scroll to select the SETTINGS/OPTIONS icon and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select SECURITY OPTIONS and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select GENERAL SETTINGS before getting the next menu.
Scroll to select the PASSWORD It should say ENABLED.
For most people the security timeout is set to 1 HOUR.

Setting up the time it takes for the BB to require a password:
Select the line you need to change, and Press [Trackwheel] to access the Menu
CHANGE OPTION should be highlighted Press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll UP to select ENABLED and press [Trackwheel] to select.
Scroll to select the SAVE and press [Trackwheel] to select.
System responds with NEW PASSWORD: input your new password press the <-| key.
System will ask you to re-enter your NEW PASSWORD: input your new password again and press <-| key.

How can i configure message services to text someone?

First, I assume you have a service provider, a valid cell phone number and that your service provider has enabled text messaging as part of your plan.

To send a text message, go to "Messages", then click "Compose SMS", "[Use Once]", "SMS".

Type the cell phone number of the person you want to send the message to.

Click the trackwheel, then "Continue".

Type a message.

Click the trackwheel.

Click "Send".

If you still are not able to send a text message, you need to verify that "fixed dialing mode" is not enabled. To do that:

Go to Phone Options.

Click "FDN Phone List".

Click the trackwheel.

Click "Disable FDN Mode".

About fixed dialing
If you enable fixed dialing number (FDN) mode, your device only makes calls to contacts on your FDN list. Your device can dial emergency numbers in FDN mode, even if the numbers are not in the FDN list. If your service provider plan includes SMS, you can also send SMS messages to contacts on your FDN list

so if you have this enabled chances are you have to turn it off.
this is how you turn it on so you should be able to use it as a guide to turn it off.

Turn on fixed dialing
1. In the phone options, click FDN Phone List.
2. Click the trackwheel.
3. Click Enable FDN mode.
4. Type the PIN2 code provided by your service provider.
5. Click the trackwheel.

or if you wanna keep it on and add friends to the fdn

Add contacts to the FDN list
1. In the phone options, click FDN Phone List.
2. Click the trackwheel.
3. Click New.
4. Type the PIN2 code provided by your service provider.
5. Click the trackwheel.
6. Type a name and a phone number.
7. Click the trackwheel.
8. Click Save.

and finally some shortcut keys:
To open the phone, press the Send key.
To end a call, press the End key.
To call a selected contact or phone number, press the Send key. To call a speed dial number, hold the assigned key.
To add an extension to a phone number, press the X key. Type the extension number.
To call your voice mail access number, hold 1.

Connectivity problems with my Nextel Blackberry 7100i

I am not sure this is what solved my problem but it worked after I did this. When you enter the 0000 code, make sure to hit the enter key and not push the trackwheel. That made the connection work.
