    I am going through exactly what you are going through. My blackberry torch key pad suddenly stopped working and even the torch screen stopped working also. But, sometimes it comes back on. Each time i put the phone in a bowl of uncooked rice the torch screen works after 30mins but the keypad has not been working for almost a month now. Please help me

    the problem is in the play slider, has a magnet that, when closed, it activates the portrait or the virtual keyboard. if the magnet is not working, this function will not activate. has nothing to do with software .
