Default roller ball !?!?

Please Login to Remove!

okay last night my roller ball on my blackberry started being suuuper weird. as well, some of my keys are not working. the roller ball is clicking things when i'm not actually clicking, even when i just roll over something so i end up sending several blank texts to people or calling people or forwarding messages etc. super annoying!! has this happened to anyone?!? should i take it into my supplier or is there a quick fix? i've tried a battery pull several times.

thank you.

Take the battery out and let the device dry out for a few days on its own. You might get lucky and it will start behaving normally again, once all he moisture is out of the device.

Sounds to me like the device got wet. Did it?
