Default Re: Weird: Need to hold alt key for trackpad in some menus

I have the exact same problem as OP with my BB 8530. What happened with me is I accidently dropped it on the tile kitchen floor.

Update: Well I got lucky and fixed mine SOMEHOW....The last things I did was:

1. I notice that the trackpad was slightly in on the left side a little more than the right side. So I pressed on the pad on the right, put my fingernail in on the left and put a lot of pressure on the right (Thinking I might push the trackpad back in place).
2. I then took off the back, took the battery out, then pulled out my micro-sd card and pushed it back in. Put the battery back in.
3. When I powered it back up, I opened the full menu list and it worked sliding down and up. Went into text message and was able to scroll up into history of messages with a person.
