    Totally new to this site so pls bare with me..

    I have a 8900 curve, i went running (sweaty!) with it like a fool & now surprise surprise the keyboard doesnt work...

    Roller ball scrolls but no click and no keys respond at all.

    I downloaded the bb desktop thingy & completed a full back-up min ago,

    Basically i just want to know in the full back up what is backed up?

    Will my messenger contacts pins be there so i can add them again?
    Will my calender dates be there?
    Will my memo pad notes be there?
    Msg etc?

    Plus...... When my new phone comes from the insurance do i just plug it in and click the restore bit and then its all done??

    Also.... why when i go into the bb backup folder does it now open so i cant see whats saved etc?

    Thanks alot for this

    Did you try to do a simple battery pull first before doing anything extreme to the device?

    The heat could have affected it temporarily, and a battery pull may help.

    Unless your hands sweat like a gallon while running, then maybe it got water damage.

    Yes i did the battery pull, i had the phone in a zip in my leggings but im not that sweaty! - to be fair tho it isnt the first time i have taken it with me so maybe its just a build up?

    At present the phone is off with the battery out so fingers crossed it might be ok in the morn?

    Seems odd, and honestly I think the 2 may just be bad luck but I don't think that one led to the other.

    If you are keeping the battery out, I would suggest placing the device in a bag of rice overnight to pull any moisture that may be in the device out of it.
