problem with BB touchpad - is this normal?
I have a new BB Curve 9330 and I'm having trouble with the touchpad. It behaves inconsistently; what seems like the same touch to me sometimes results in no movement, and other times it moves farther than I wanted. It's not too bad in most screens & apps because there are only certain locations where the cursor can be. But in Opera Mini or BB browser, where the pointer goes everywhere, it can be pretty hard to point at what I want. Sometimes the mouse goes way farther than I intended, at a slight angle, so then I'm starting over trying to get it to that little checkbox or whatever. Sometimes it scrolls the screen unintentionally. Sometimes movements are delayed, which I don't notice outside the browsers.
I was accustomed to the trackball on my Pearl 8130, which was really old and a bit flaky even when cleaned, but this seems worse. Is this normal, or does it sound like a malfunction? Does it get better with practice? I tried adjusting the sensitivity, but since the problem is in both extremes, I'm not sure how to fix it.
Thanks for any tips.
