View Full Version : Trouble opening applications with trackball

10-30-2008, 12:49 PM
I've had my 8830 for little over a year now, and have only recently run into a problem. Earlier this week the trackball on my phone has been on the fritz. Scrolling with the ball works perfectly fine, the problem is that when I depress the trackball, the phone will not respond and not open an application. Or, it becomes hypersensitive, and will respond to the slightest breeze(no joke). Has anyone else experienced this problem?
