Question about AT&T Blackberry Curve 8300 Smartphone
I have a Blackberry Curve and I had it in my pocket last night. It was working fine for a while, then when I took it out of my pocket later, they keyboard was locked and the trackball wouldn't click on any of the icons. I can hear texts and calls coming in but I can't answer them and I can't read my messages as the keyboard is not working at all. The only way for me to see the screen is to reset the phone. Is this because I had it in my pocket and some keys were pushed? Please help.

The Best thing to do when this problem occurs is to simply remove the battery from the phone and take out any memory card and stick both the battery and memory card directly up your **** until you feel a very strong pressure , after doing so you take the blackberry and throw it at the person next to you. hugtr

The only way to fully get it up and running again it to open the blackberry an clean the logic board. this issue is usually caused by water damage. If you want somebody else to do it for you, goto Blackberry Repairl. If you want to do it yourself, here is a Blackberry Repair Guide that shows how to disassemble a blackberry. Clean any contamination you can find on the logic board, chance are 50/50 that it will work again.

Maybe you can try to hard reset it. The manual way to do this is to remove the batter for 1-2 minutes and restart the blackberry. Hope this fix your problem.

My curve is now a pager....
I.E a Dud
I have EXACTLY the same problem and it happened after having the Curve in my pocket as well. If anyone has a suggestion on how to remedy this PLEASE chime in. Carrier says replacement is backordered...
I have the same problem a unlocked Curve, theres got to be a fix
I have a similar problem. Screen only lights up when I get a call, but none of the buttons work. The trackball scrolls but doesn't click.
yup, have the exact same issue here, will be taking it to my dealer tomorrow.
I got the same problem and was told by the Sprint CC Rep that it's some kind of "moisture" damage... he even showed me the battery's "xxxx" label that supposed to go RED when moisture damage happens, he's answer to my problem was "call the replacement insurance and get another phone"
So i'm gonna get a stupid refurbish phone that who knows what happen to it. I paid for mine and i want to keep it tho lol
The excact thing happened to me. Had it in my pocket during the day and recieved calls. Came home to turn it off and I can't see the screen. Even recieved a call which I could not answer. Help PLEASE!!!!
I have the same problem. The first time this happen, I went out and left it in my pocket, when I came back it didnt want to work. I went to bed and it was doing fine when I wake up. So, I didnt take it seriously and keep putting my phone in my pocket. But, yesterday night, when this happened again, I thought that I had the same issue and wait for the morning; but it never worked. I dont know what to do.
I have the same problem and i can hear text and calls but the buttons dont do anything only the track ball can move stuff but doesnt click
Dude you so wrote it better then i did , yes my phone is doing the same thing yours is doing by me leaving it in my pocket. So i have to get a new piece of ****?
This just happened to me. None of the buttons worked - I upgraded the OS - figured it might have been that - Later I checked the batery and the moisture indicator was red on the battery and I am like WHAT - its freaking HUMID outside. The phone should be ok with HUMIDITY!
So now I have to wait for a new phone that will take a few days to get here - and Verizon is to cheap to give me a loaner phone - even though I spend THOUSANDS of dollars a year with their service!
All my keys are locked up including the quick access buttons on the side and even the on-off button on top does nothing. I can answer incoming calls by pushing the button on my blue tooth adn using the voice dialing.
The screen only pops up when I plug my phone into the charger. I can see I have missed calls and missed messeges but can't type in my password to unlock my phone. The screen goes black after 10 seconds of having it plugged in or being unplugged.
I have the exact same problem, this is ***. Someone that is smart just post on what to do, and i dont wanna hear take it back to the store which is what im gonna have to do.
