Default Trackball issue. Help appreciated

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

This is my first post on this forum and hope somebody might help me. I would appreciate some advice on the subject of Trackball movement effecting ring tones whilst in a pocket.

I am considering upgrading soon to the pearl but am worried about a paragraph in a review that states:

" There are a couple issues that RIM [who makes the 8100] will be fixing. It needs, for example, a "hot key" that allows one to disable the trackball when I plan to put the phone into a pocket. This is needed because otherwise the phone goes into "ignore" or silent mode at the slightest movement of the trackball. So a call that comes in could get killed or disconnected when the phone is one's pocket."

Has anybody experienced this problem?

Would very much appreciate advice. Many thanks.

That was fixed in the first (of several) updates that have come out. Only the very first version (4.2.0.42) had that problem.

I have .69 running on mine and have for a week only but I dont have the problem at all. My bb is always in my pocket and I have missed any calls that way.
