Default My BB is crazy....

Please Login to Remove!

The key for the letter o is not working, and/or it writes the letter it by itself...
the ALT key is not working either
I already tried a complete wiped out, restored my info with the back up already (of course I already removed the battery several times)
It also changes my hour zone time without any help from me...
Please, any ideas????

Moisture can come from anywhere. such as having the BB in the bathroom as you get a shower. It most definitely sounds like moisture. Also, keep in mind that it could have been exposed to moisture some time ago and the effects are just now starting to show.

Take the battery out.
Put it in a bag of rice for 3-4 days to try and draw the moisture out of it.

That's about it.

To clarify, by "it" you mean both the BlackBerry itself and the battery.
