Exclamation HELP! My Pearl is going crazy!

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all, last week I noticed my pearl was acting a bit funny. The trackball would just start jumping all over the screen and start opening random apps and then start taking pictured when i turned it on. After about 2 minutes of this is just shuts off until i remove the battery again or if I leave it for a while it will just come back on and do the same thing. I have wiped it clean, cleaned the trackball, and still it goes crazy. I am about to install SMobile Virus Guard but other than that I am at all total loss! Can someone please help me

Welcome to the BBForums.

You don't need some virus guard software, the last thing your BB has is a virus, because BBs don't get virii.

That sounds like one of two things: lint or dust in the trackball well (and you did you say you cleaned it), or moisture damage. As in liquid.

Could it be?
