BB Curve 8900 :: Trackball Not Working Without A SIM

Aug 26, 2010

My trackball and keypad are frozen if there is no SIM in the device. However, they start working when I put a SIM into my 8900. I run os 822 and don't have any problems otherwise. Though this isn't a show stopper, I was wondering as to why this happens.

BB Curve 8900 :: Trackball Won't Click

Jun 22, 2010

Can this be fixed by replacing the white bubble-pad under the keyboard or is it f.u.b.a.r.'d? (It scrolls just fine just won't click)

BB Curve 8900 :: Trackball Doesn't Work

Mar 19, 2010

So I got my first BB 6 months ago! I loved it I babied it! I never had a phone do so much keep me so entertained. Keep me so up to date with everything> I left the G1 for the BB and it was still much better I could contact friends I could not any other way with the BBIM. Then one day she died in her track ball! So I had to replace her. That was 2 months into the love affair I was having with the BB.

So I got the replace meant and it was harder than anything to tell her by. I could tell my wife by with ease but not her. I loved her! She was my best friend my companion I never left her behind! So many bars so many experiences SO MUCH TROUBLE ELIMINATED. But she had to go, Like a horse with a broke leg she was worthless!

So on to my second one not so much babying as I still thought of her predecessor. She could never be HER! I however gave here a chance! and we grew a bond unlike no other.

we were inseparable every where together only a handful of hungover days did I forget to bring her with me to work. I m,ade up for that many a time!

She finally committed suicide of the track ball as well. Following her predecessor. So I had to replace her again but this time I had new knowledge of how to use her while I waited. I also had a callous numbness to her loss from my first marriage to a BB! So I was not hurt or lonely!

So as I awaited my replacement BB Curve 8900. I did not care as soon as it arrived she was done she was gone to the wayside! I hope you can be refurbished but I can never trust you ever!

My new mistress arrived I opened her fondled her and loaded her with all I had! Only to find out I had been burned. She did not work for data. or incoming calls. She was a teasing *****! So back to my previous mistress! With no track ball while I fight for a free upgrade due to have gone through 3 BB 8900 in 6 months WTF

BB Curve 8900 :: Trackball Not Sensitive After I.S. Installation

Jan 4, 2010

So I installed an Invisible Shield on my 8900 yesterday and I turned it on a few minutes ago to find that the trackball isn't working well anymore.The phone works fine, it didn't have any water damage.
However to be able to use the trackball I have to press down while spinning it.Also it feels kinda smooth, like it offers no resistance when spinning.Any solutions? What can I do? If i take in to T-Mobile can they give me a new trackball? (Phone was purchased March 08.)

BB Curve :: 8900 Trackball Has Stopped Working?

Jul 25, 2011

I have a Curve 8900 which I love but recently the trackball has stopped working. I can't get to my email, bbm, text, browser, etc needless to say it's extremely frustrating, I have cleaned the trackball with alcohol and it seemed to work in the beginning but it doesn't work now. Is there a way to use the keyboard to get to the icons such as email without using the trackball.

BB Curve 8900 :: All Keys + Trackball Wont Work

May 6, 2010

I have the 8900 and my carrier is Tata Docomo. None of the keys and the trackball are working, This includes the mute key on top of the phone, the lock key, the side push button keys , . . all keys are not working. And neither is the trackball.I flashed the OS, as in reinstalled the OS, 5.0.090 (Platform 4.0.023) but that didnt solve the problem.

I've also plugged out the media card, to avoid any conflicts.Have done hard resets of course, but thats not helped either.Except for the keys not functioning, the phone is otherwise functioning, I can recieve calls, which I of course cant pick up. I am being able to use it as a modem and connect to the internet using Desktop Manager. The Desktp manager is detecting the phone, too.

The Desktop manager version I am using is of the 252.5 M device space available, I have 131.0 M free.

BB Curve 8900 :: Loose Trackball Doesnt Seem To Be Contacting Inside

Apr 19, 2010

sorry guys i know this has been covered but i recently dropped my phone running and the top lock key seemed to be affected (point of impact) so i was having to apply alot of pressure to lock i ordered a new chrome bezel and top cover (lock and mute button)took it apart and put back together.

issue im having is that at times the trackball seems to be loosing contact in the back (inside). so it will work at times then it just stops i can make a selection by clicking the track ball but any vertical or horizontal movement doesnt register. IF i apply pressure to the back of the battery door and push up behind the track ball it seems to work.

So i took it apart and tried to make sure nothing was in between the trackball and what it touches. didnt seem to be. but the issue still there i tried to retighten the screws but i dont want to strip them so im wondering what my options are. i really dont want a refurbed phone but i may have to order one idk.

BB Bold 9700 :: Handset Trackball Frozen

Apr 4, 2010

I have had my BB Bold 9700 for about six months and love it for the most part.Just recently, the trackpad stopped being responsive as far as being able to move the selector bracket (cursor?) around to select an icon for a program or even move the cursor within any program.At first, waiting a little bit would help.Then turning it off and on with the red key worked.When that stopped working, I did a battery pull and it worked a few times.Then when that stopped working, I did a battery pull and held the escape key (the arrow that does the uturn right?) which I understand from the threads that I have read is BB safe mode.This did not help.Now it is frozen and I cannot get it unfrozen.The last thing I did was load a game (Final Fantasy), but I have been playing that for over a week with no problem then, out of the blue, this problem started yesterday.

BB Curve 83xx :: Trackball Scrolls Fine But All Buttons And Clicking Trackball Does Nothing

May 2, 2010

so here's my problem. i went over to a friends house today for a barbecue, and when i got there i sent a text so i know everything was working fine. a few hours later i get home and notice that the screen on my Curve is black, and i knew something was up because i know it was fully charged before i left the house earlier. hit the buttons and nothing. so i do a battery pull and it reboots fine, then the screen goes black after 30 seconds and then hit the buttons and nothing. when i hook a mini usb cable up to the port, the screen comes back on for the usual 30 seconds, then goes black like the other times. when i connected it via the cable and the screen lit up, i noticed that the trackball scrolls fine left and right, but pushing the trackball does nothing.the phone is about a year and a half old, through Verizon. i have no problem with getting a new phone, but i don't want to loose the 150 or so contacts i have on the phone. i don't have Google Sync installed on the phone, and i'm guessing that it's too late to back anything up now on my end. when i connect it to my PC, i can access the usually Media folders and Slacker, but nothing else. if i take it into a local VZW store, would they be able to back up my address book the exact way it is now, since the phone powers on and the USB port works fine?i'm going to remove the shell tonight and see if i notice anything.

BB Tour 9630 :: Trackball Frozen On Back-Up Assistant Icon

Apr 22, 2010

I was working with Back-up Assistant, scrolled down so i could click "I Accept" on the RIM warning screen stating that I was going to a 3rd party site...and I couldn't highlight the "I Accept" button (or the "don't accept" button for that matter). So, I just exited from that screen, but now when I go to the main menu, it is frozen on the Back-Up Assistant icon. I can't move the trackball off of it. The trackball obviously isn't broken, because I can move around the 5 icons on the home just won't work on the menu screen....

BB Tour 9630 :: Replace Trackball With Curve 8330 Trackball

Jan 16, 2010

I upgraded my Verizon Curve 8330 to a Tour and now my trackball is acting up. I'm thinking of changing the trackballs since I never had a problem with the Curve. Are they all the same size or has anyone had problems trying this. I'm not worried about taking it apart or the warranty, but would like to see if this was successful for anyone else first.
