Default Nextel BB 7520 is very durable!

My BB froze today so I removed the battery and rebooted the device. Waited 20 minutes for it to finally boot and after bootup still no keys would work. I tried again, another 20 minutes and nothing, so I FINALLY broke down and chucked it (fealt so good!).. Nothing happened to the phone at all, not even a ding! At least the hardware is durable. Put the battery back in and started back up. Let it sit for a while and the wheel started to work. It didnt click, but I was able to scroll. No other keys work though. I call myself and I am not able to answer the call when it shows up on the screen. At boot up I am stuck at the BB Today screen. Anyone have any ideas?

I have had this problem too (with the 7520) but usually rebooting it fixes it. Once the device FULLY boots up (and don't do anything until it does, because I found that also causes the problem you described) press and the ESC key, and get out of BBToday. See if that helps.
