When the unit is on with the desktop displayed the only feature that works is the scroll wheel and only for scrolling between icons. When selecting any icons via the keys or by clicking the scroll wheel nothing will happen. The backlight button is not working either. At this stage we would like to just format the BB but we tried the option 'kill handheld' from our BES server but again this proved unsuccessful.
Any help or advice would be great.

- in other words - it would be cheaper to try to buy an onlocked 7290 on ebay. I paid $37 bucks for mine a few weeks ago
