    Ever since I've done the latest OS upgrade, mine gets "stuck" at least 6 times a day and I have to pull the battery to get it going again...getting very frustrating.

    I get the same problem, mine has stuck previously various times, only recently The pad went out. The first time it came back after a day, 2nd time i went 3 dam days by using keyboard shortcuts. I did a hard reset and that fixed it. Have my fingers crossed. Try a hard reset, alt+shift+delete

    What are the keyboard shortcuts? My pad is out for good now after acting up for 6 months and waiting on Sprint to "grant" me the ok to pay them for early upgrade. <

    I used the wrong term "shortcuts". Really the way I navigated through my phone is accessing all that I could through the "search" function. Meaning I would just start typing the name of a contact I wanted to text, or song that i wanted to listen to and hopefully it was the first search result. This doesn't work for everything that you are trying to find on your phone. To switch between apps hit the "alt+return arrow", again this is limited to apps you have open.

    For calls I would hit the green button and just typing the contact or number. It really is a hassle.

    Anywho, I took it to Sprint and since they found no probably cause that I broke the phone, they couldn't fix the pad and just gave me a whole new phone which works fine now Hopefully you have insurance on it. Hope this helps, goodluck!

    I am still waiting on my early upgrade phone and very frustrating not being able to get to my text icon on the home screen. Would've cost me more to have it fixed than the early upgrade fee. I have a dumb smart phone right now.

    Is there anyway to use the keyboard for scrolling instead of the trackpad (since mine is kaput)?

    Nope not that I know of. If you aren't due for an upgrade anytime soon I would just take it in to see if they can fix it. I'm not due until September, in which I will drop this phone like a bad habit.
