So this phone was supposed to be unlocked and brand new, but it's obviously been used on the Orange network in the UK because I can't get it to cooperate on AT&T at all. I've already added the required data plan so that's out. I've tried several different OS versions and the same Orange splash screen pops up every time. It even dials the +44 prefix by default and the time is default set to the UK time zone. Is there something hardwired into this device I don't know about?
Second problem, I spilled juice onto my keyboard (we've all abused at some point) and either the trackball board or something on the keyboard is causing it to select whatever the cursor happens to be hovering over. It doesn't always do it but when it does it makes the phone nearly unusable. Are there any cleaning instructions (i.e opening the case) that might help? If not, what parts would I have to replace? Everything else works fine.
