Trackpád scrolling uncontrolably
common issue with the 3g.
things you could do:
-put a piece of scotchtape over the trackpad, take a thumbtack or something sharp and cut the scotch tape around the trackpad. this is a good fix but it makes it harder to use the trackpad.
-replace the trackpad
-(sometimes works), put a buisiness card behind the battery (where you put the simcard). this seperates the metal piece where the trackpad is from interfearing with the battery.
-you can open the phone and push the trackpad in. so its not pointing out as much. (when light goes through it moves by itself)

I've experienced the same thing with my Curve. For the ghost scrolling, I updated the OS bundle for the Curve and it eliminated almost all of the problems I've been experiencing when texting and typing.
As for hardware.. Try cleaning the trackpad or getting it replaced or checked out by a technician. I'd rather take the cost saving alternative LOL.BlackBerry is my phone of choice. No other phone gives me the same experience that BlackBerry does .
Thanks for your responses, I'm running "berrylicious v5" hybrid os, but this problem has carried on from os5 to os18.104.22.1683 and now to blv5, so it doesn't appear to be software, and I've tried the "cardboard/business card" trick. Seeing I'm still under warranty I'll contact my service provider. I'll try the scotch tape thing though, and don't want to void my warranty by opening the phone. I'll make sure to load 22.214.171.1244 on my phone before I send it in if the tape doesn't work. As 126.96.36.1994 is the latest release "supported" by
