Default 8700c keyboard bug?

Please Login to Remove!

I owned a Blackberry 8700c for about seven months. It, up until this point, never gave me any problems, until this morning, it started to act up.

When I press certain keys on the phone:

ALT gives me "w" on keypad
8 (or X) gives me "w" on keypad
Pressing del on messaging app jumps down to the earliest email and asks to delete.

I assume this is 'bugged out' keyboard mapping.

Before I perform a hard reset on the phone, is there any way to work around this without resetting? And has anyone else experienced a similar problem?

Can always try wiping the OS and reinstalling. Backup first.
