Unhappy Strangest Problems with Curve 8900

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone, Couple of very strange problems with my 2 weeks old curve 8900 ~ Rogers branded - Unlocked - Flashed to v4.6.1.133(Platform

1) Camera turns on itself and takes random shots
2) Phone screen fails to enter stand by mode, even after locking.
3) Battery drains in few hours ~ Because of failure to go into standby.
4) Number keyboard doesn't work. Pushing Alt + number keys not working at all.
5) Using the ALT + random numeric keys turns on the camera.

To resolve the problems, I have tried the following so far:

1) Upgraded to .133 from .94, Restored the .ipd file = Same problems.
2) Wiped with jl_cmder, reinstalled .133 using Apploader, Restored Contacts only with Outlook sync = Same problems.
3) Simple wipe(Security > General > wipe) = Same problems.

Anybody else facing the similar problems with their 8900 Curve? I have owned, used, flashed many Blackberries, But this is probably the most **ked up blackberry I have ever seen(Pardon my french, I'm just really frustrated).
