The first problem I had was at times the tracker ball wouldn't work, I could still scroll around but when I tried selecting something with it, nothing would happen. This problem happens off and on, but can be very frustrating.
Then later that afternoon my phone just starting taking pictures, several pictures in a row. It usually starts doing this when I try to use my phone in some manner, wether it's texting or making a call.
And now the latest thing is, what ever is selected will automatically open, as if the tracker ball is stuck(but it isn't).
It was to the point where I had the messages option highlighted, it would automatically open my text messages and then it would try to take a picture, I kept pressing the back button to cancel but about 5 seconds later it would do the same thing. This went on for 10-15 minutes.
Has anyone else experienced something like this? Should I take it back to where I purchased it and have them look at it?
Start with a hard reset, (battery pull while the device is ON screen light up).
If that doesn't solve it then I am guessing hardware. You can try taking the trackball out to see if there is physical damage and replace for about $10.00
Start with the hard reset and let's cross our fingers!
