hey,

i have a blackberry 8300 curve and today my phone gradually got worse and stopped working
last night it was 100% fine and today it has gone from the keys being pressed and showing up the wrong thing to what it is now, which all i can do is scroll around the home screen and the enter isnt working and i have no clue what to do!
i have tried resetting it, any ideas whats wrong with it, is this going to be something that i can sort myself or is it going to need a trip to RIM HQ?

Did the device get wet? That's what it sounds like. Did you try removing the battery to reboot the device?

If you can let it sit in a warm dry place it may dry out and begin to work. You could try wiping the device and reloading the OS but it sounds like a hardware issue to me. Otherwise, I got nuffin else to suggest.
