Default My Trackball, green phone key, menu key, and return key are no working properly

Please Login to Remove!

my green phone key acts like my 4 key

my menu key acts like my 1 key

and my return key acts like my * key and sometime the ALT key

I trackball wet Saturday and I dried with a blow drier and have everyday. I think that might have fried it a little. At first it wasn't functioning at all but prayer changes things!

What do I do !! !! !! !! !! !! ?? ? ? ? ? ? ?

You got your phone wet, its gonna act up. You can try removing the battery and placing your phone in a bowl of uncooked rice for a day or two. It might not be too late (hopefully). The blow dryer was not a good idea.

You are lucky that your phone is still working. The reason is when you keep the phone turned on while the cell phone is wet then it shorts the circuit board of the device. You had to pull the battery out immediately the time it got wet.
Well any way now is the time to take the advice of "kirrinjones" and WISH YOU ALL THE BEST WITH YOUR BB DEVICE" !
