Phone: Blackberry 8110-Red Pearl
Carrier: Cingular/AT&T

For some reason my blackberry is going crazy. Every time I press a key, it does something else and reads it as if I've pressed two+ keys. Well, it only does this for some keys, but they are the most important ones. It hasn't been dropped or exposed to water damage, and I don't know if it's still under warranty. I checked the moisture indicator sticker, and it's still white. I already tried doing a battery pull like 20 times, and THAT didn't help

A quick list of what it's reading each key as...
Call - ADADADAD...
BB (The one w/dots) - WEWEWEWE...
Trackball Push: x7x7x7x7x7...
Return - ??? (Probably reading as something else because it's not working right)

Please help

Sounds like moisture. Did you get it wet? Sweaty pocket even?

No, I didn't. It WAS raining hard, but the phone stayed inside the entire time. This has been happening for like a month, but it usually goes away after like an hour, but this is the first time it's been lasting longer (1 day so far, and counting)

And I checked the sticker (White square near the battery compartment right?), and it's white, not red.

If you have a media card, remove it, see what happens.

And you can try wiping with JL_CMDER (see blackberryfaq.com) and then reinstall the operating system. If it's not a bad media card, I'm doubtful, sounds like blackberry is broke, but worth a try. See what others say.

I tried removing the media card... still going crazy. I'm going to try to wipe it now, just gotta reinstall the desktop manager first...

-edit-

First, I'm gonna call Blackberry or someone. I found my original receipt, and I just hope it's still under warranty.
