The only way for it to keep from doing it is locking it. It also does other random scrolling and dialing of phone numbers as well without any user interface. I've taken the track ball out and tried to clean it thinking that might have something to do with it, but no dice. I'm at a complete loss as to what to do. This is a Cingular phone. She just had an unlocked T-mobile which did the exact same thing. The cingular I got had some cosmetic damage, but I transfered all the good parts, including the circuit board itself into her phone. The only two things, besides the cosmetic parts, that carried over from the original t-mobile unlocked to the cingular phone was her SIM card and the trackball. I'm curious if anybody else has experienced this problem and if so, does anybody have a solution. Any help would be very much appreciated. I'm thinking it could some how be the trackball, but I'm still at a lost and shooting in the dark. Thanks in advance.
The first thing you need to do is go to options. Then scroll do to SMS Text. When you enter first thing highlighted is disable AutoText. Click it and say yes.
