    Default curve 8520 controlling itself

    Hi guys, basically i've had my blackberry for nearly a year now and its been super, done a dozen battery pulls etc but nothing major, but recently i been very clumsy and ive dropped my phone a number of times, but never ever seems to be wrong with it oviously just some external scratches. but now its just gone haywire, i've listed below the problems i have with it now

    - randomly types its own letters in when i write a text etc
    - when i go on the menu, it automatically goes to my phonebook to the call list to where you input numbers to make a call
    - turns itself off after about 2-3mins
    - the O button on the keypad dont work any more

    the drop it took right before this started was no different to the other ones but the phone survived all them perfectly at first i thought it could be a software problem but my software is up to date so i really dont know, and i dont have insurance either :/

    It sounds like you've answered your own question. You said you've dropped the device a "number of times". It is not built to withstand repeated jarring and banging.

    You can try reloading the OS, but most likely the device is physically damaged.

    Its pretty easy to fix. Go to a repair store.

    There are 2 options, the second one is easier.

    1. install BBSAK from bbsak.org plug ur phone into the pc, wipe it and then the BlackBerry User Tools cd u get when u buy the phone, install bb desktop software and connect ur phone it will say cannot connect, click update and go from there.

    2. install BBSAK from bbsak.org plug ur phone into the pc and click restore to factory settings, and there u have it, a fixed bb

    i dont know if this will work 4 this problem cuz its the solution 4 another
