Smile Blackberry autosends first keystroke, 8520

Please Login to Remove!

So.. out of a sudden my blackberry's keyboard went rampant with me (lol)
basically, in every single instant messaging app whenever I type in a single character it automatically sends it, the only app that lets me type complete sentences is the text messages one, so I have to copy paste the text from there... i really dont like sending one letter per message to people, neither do i like copy-pasting from the text messages app

hope you guys can help out, since the customer support peeps tend to be complete morons

-Blackberry curve 8520 running os 5, actually.. is my wife's, my torch runs just fine-

Have you tried taking out the battery for 10 seconds and then putting it back in (first troubleshooting step).

Did the BB happen to get wet recently?

Unfortunately steam does count...
If it did get damp, there are moisture indicators on or around the battery.

You may be ok, if you were in time, and if it isn't something else. The important thing is not to put the battery back until you have allowed plenty of time to dry.

EDIT: I looked just now and the page is empty for me, too.

People have found that uncooked, dry rice does a decent job drawing moisture out of the BlackBerry. Put the device in rice in a dry sealed bag or container and leave it for days. Do a search and see what others have recommended. I'm thinking about four days to be safe.

Edit #2: I just clicked again and the page loaded. http://blackberryfaq.com/index.php/G...lackBerry_Wet?

Got Your BlackBerry Wet?

What to do if you suspect liquid or moisture damage?

1. Do not attempt to turn on your BlackBerry. Remove the battery immediately!!

2. Let the device dry in a warm, dry place for 3 to 5 days* (see below)

3. DO NOT "check it each day" by placing the battery in. Leave it be to dry completely. This takes time. Replacing the battery to check it only hurts (moisture + electrical current = disaster).

3. If the device is warm, let it cool to room temperature.

4. After enough time, reassemble the device and put battery back in.

Suggestions on drying your BlackBerry in a warm place (open, with the battery out):
On top of any dry heat emitting electronic component: TV cabinet or CRT, LCD, cable TV/Satellite converter box or plasma monitor
On the dashboard of your car on a sunny day
Place the BB in a sealed container of dry UNcooked rice, and then place in any of the locations mentioned above.
Water Damage Indicator: Sometimes, your device will show water damage by check the water damage indicator inside the housing. You are looking for a small 1/8" square sticker, which should be white. Complete liquid damage will turn the sticker pink or red.

NOTE: a device that has gotten simply "moist", say in a steamy or highly humid environment may never show a red or pink sticker, but it will remain white while the keys or the trackball/trackpad of the device will cease working. So, the liquid damage indicator is only of importance to determine if the device has been complete dunked, submerged, rained upon, or such severe wetness.

A battery sticker with a red or pink line or XXX across it, is ok, it is dry. Again, if it is solid pink, red or black, it has gotten wet.
