    Hi guys,



    I'm a happy owner of a porsche design bberry p9981.

    So far so good except for the trackpad that's sort of not working that good these days...

    Have any of you guys experienced anything similar?

    Any tip to share to fix the issue and or replace the track pad?

    Thanks heaps!

    I have had my P9981 for several months now and am enjoying it! I just updated to the latest OS and for the first time I'm have the track-pad issue you talk about? The only solution I have found so far is to do a battery pull. It seems to be OK after I do that, but I really hope it doesn't continue!

    I have not seen that issue (yet) - What version did you upgrade to? My P'9981 is on 7.1.0.342

    Hi.. I just got mine delivered. I seem to notice that the Trackpad is not very Clicky like the other keys i.e. the end/ answer button. Is this normal, or is there a defect. Also the track pad edge can be felt along the screen. The other button are flat.. this one is a bit out.. Please advise...

    Everything fine with mine. If anything I find the keyboard keys themself a tad too clicky. I feel terrible complaining about it actually.

    But yeah that's probably the only thing I'd change with this device. A keyboard that's more like the 9900's.

    when i click the trackpad on my p9981
    the bb often opens the help menue. this happend often when i am on the homescreen and want to choose one icon, for example i want the bbm. i mark the bbm icon, i click with the trackpad and the the help menue opens. i checked that several times. every time the same. when the help menue is open i see that that in the search field is the letter H written.

    I have the same problem - maybe it was caused by OS 7.1 upgrade. I switched it back to 7.0 and have no longer seen the problem. It was very annoying.

    I read somewhere that there is this person (cashcai) who has the same issue and how he solved it:

    Hope this helps

    Normally for this price porsche and blackberry should replace and change the device within 24h

    Device exchange maybe in Canada, UK and UAE. The service and support for Blackberry in other countries are zero to non existence. Just to gets parts and accessories for the P9981 is so difficult.

    Perhaps, RIM should make themselves more customer accessible as one of their new strategy for the future

    Glad to hear it Did you just tape up the wires of the trackpad?

    No.
    I just tape up one place where the flat hit this when i press the trackpad.
    I also saw that the flat is a little bit damaged. Because of the pressing.

    Hello there,

    Congrats on the fix! My trackpad doesn't type letters but scrolling is dead as disco.

    Anyone got a tip as to how to open the case without damaging the device?

    Thanks heaps!

    I was able to do it, but its not an easy process as you have to be very gentle with the phone. Otherwise its pretty straight forward if you have any sort of experience with taking things aprt
