    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

What if the delete and enter buttons on my new blackberry curve don't work? Is there a way to fix them?


All BlackBerry smartphones have settings that can be used to customize the features of an application. When using an application, click the trackwheel, then select Options. The following shortcuts can be used while modifying settings:
  • To modify an option field, hold down the Alt key while scrolling to view available choices.
  • To select another option, press the first letter of the appropriate option while viewing the available choices.
Apart from this if you want to replace the buttons of your blackberry, Kindly please walk in to the nearest service center.

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".

Well if you're really in love with your BlackBerry and the warranty has expired you have two options:

1) Fix it yourself - Trackwheel will cost about 10 bucks (you can order it from Horizon Wireless. I hear it's tricky but doable)

2) Horizon Online Wireless - They can fix it for about for about 20-22 bucks (trackwheel and labor) BlackBerry Repair Center

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.
To type a letter in a number field, hold the Alt key.
To type the first letter on a key, press the letter key once.
To type the second letter on a key, press the letter key twice.
To turn on or turn off mute using the Mute button, press the Mute button.

You may have selected a profile that does not alert you audibly when you receive messages. You may select a different profile, edit the current profile or create a completely new profile. I'm attaching instructions for creating a profile and editing would be similar except you would select a profile then select "edit" for the menu. Be use you have "tone" or "vibrate and tone" selected and that the volume is not on mute. Always save your changes.

Create notification profiles
1.In the profiles list, click the trackwheel.
2.Click New Profile.
3.Type a name for the profile.
4.Click an item.
5.Click Edit.
6.Set how you want to receive notification for that item.
7.Click the trackwheel.
8.Click Save.
9.Click the trackwheel.
10.Click Save.

To turn on tones when pressing the keys, follow the following instructions:


Turn on tones when pressing keys
In the device options, click Screen/Keyboard. Set the Key Tone field to On. Click the trackwheel. Click Save.
