Trackpad, can't scroll!!
It all just started happening randomly. I didn't do anything to cause my phone to act this way.
It can scroll side to side fine, but will only scroll up or down depending on what menu its on. To scroll up or down on the menus where it doesn't work, I have to hold the shift or alt keys. While I am holding them down, I can scroll fine.
BUT, it is registering my scrolling because I turned on the scrolling sound and am hearing it even if I scroll up or down.
Also, It doesn't seem to register all my key presses anymore. If I press a and press s immediately after while a is still held down, it won't register the s. Basically, I can't press two keys simultaneously.
ALSO, it sometimes turns itself off... AND my end call button seems to be unresponsive...
Any ideas?? :S

Well, called them and they said to try reloading an OS so I tried that to no avail. Going to send it in tomorrow
I really wish I knew what exactly is going on so that I could atleast prevent this from happening in the future though...

Things happen. Maybe the trackpad wasn't good from the start.
By the way, did you use it in direct or passive sunlight? Does it happen indoors? Was it dropped? Any water damage of any kind (Even if it's moisture from sweat?)?
Hmmm, maybe. Then again, it's not just the trackpad but the end call button as well. I can't even type fast on it anymore as not all the presses will register so I have to press each key one at a time.
It happens everywhere, inside and outside. Unless dropping it from 30cm onto soft carpet counts as a drop, I have never dropped it actually, it's only a month old!!
I don't believe so, I have rarely used it outside when it's raining. It's been somewhat chilly in BC still, so sweating probably isn't the reason.
It just happened all of a sudden. In the morning when I got up, it worked just like normal. I'm hanging out at my girlfriend's place and it just starts acting like this

Typing has to be done painfully slow or you only get a letter here and there, the scrolling only works on some menus and if I dare happen to hit the "lock screen" button I have to do a battery pull to access the phone again. It is painfully annoying but haven't had the time to get over for a repair. Hoping to do that today or tomorrow. Not looking forward to a repair bill on a phone that was 1 month old at the time. Also, I have looked around via Google and we are not the only people to experience this, it is somewhat of a known issue.

Just to let you guys know, I sent my phone in so hopefully, its all good when I get it back in 10 business days. I don't think there's an actual to fix to this sort of problem, the only solution is to simply send it in. Man, would I feel bad for whoever doesn't have a warranty :S

Your symbol key is stuck!
I have this problem on my blackberry bold. I thought the problem was simply that they symbol key was jammed on, which would explain why the cursor is being used to change between special and international symbols rather than to move the cursor. This explanation was also consistent with the problem going away when shift or alt are pressed, since they could simply override the symbol key. But strangely enough, when I'm typing and email normally and I press the symbol key the symbol menu opens up! So there is some other problem. Anyone know if it is hardware or software?

I was just trying for "light sensitivity" on mine, as I have trouble sometimes. I believe that may be the issue for me. At work, it is very bright in my workspace - and that is where I have the issue of the trackpad "sticking". When I shade the trackpad with my hand, it works fine. Interesting...

Yeah, I have a trackpad problem all of the sudden on my 9810. Just won't work, then have to use without. Kinda infuriating. I try to keep cool, but it is a pain.
I pull the battery and sim and it seems to work for a day or so before going out again.

About a month ago my trackpad started scrolling on it's own. After a week of that, the trackpad stopped responding at all. Then for no apparent reason the trackpad started working normally. It's been working for about two weeks now. I hope the 9900's self healing powers continue.

Hmmm, Just an hour ago before I posted this, I had same problem with my BB9930 track pad. Last time before the symptom came out, I just to replace the battery with other one of battery's as my backup unit.
WHAT THE SOLUTION IS:
I started with removing the Battery unit, SIM card including MicroSD card out from device.
I leave it without those units in almost 15 minute and placed the all units back. Since the battery Installed properly on the device, it was immediately turn on and booting process came normally. Then when the desktop display was appeared, I try to move the pointer scroll up and down, it work normally!!!
