    I own a Blackberry Bold 9900.

    I have had it for about a year now.

    I understand this might seem a bit bizarre, but my cursor only moves in certain conditions. It never has spontaneously moved when I have been inside for instance. Only when I'm outside and when it's rather windy does my screen seem to scroll upwards.
    This is a problem especially when I'm typing a text message for instance, because as I'm typing the screen moves up and I type into nothing.

    This is quite an issue, not major because most of the time I don't experience it but when I do it can get on my nerves.

    Is this because my device is defective like I've been able to read in a few other threads (although it wasn't described exactly like my problem)? Or maybe it's an interface issue? I am nevertheless pretty convinced it's a physical problem.

    Can anyone relate to this? Many thanks.

    Sounds like a problem with the touchpad on your phone. It's optical, so it could even react to shadows. Try turning down the sensitivity a little and see if that helps.

    I have a 9780 Bold. It's not a touch screen, but I have encountered my cursor moving on its own, specially if its windy.
    You can try turning the sensitivity down. Unless your like me and need it high. I did a security wipe and it fixed it for awhile, but I ended up reloading the OS and it hasn't happened since.

    Apparently strong sun light can effect the touch pad, search in forums...

    PLENTY of threads on something similar throughout the years. its a hardware issue. ive had two 9800s replaced over this and replaced my old 9700 trackpad myself due to it. please search next time.
