    Blackberry curve 3g 9300 track pad not working?

    Can't seem to find any 'fixes' without taking the thing apart?! Just wondered if it's happened to anyone? with any blackberry.

    Earlier the trackpad just stopped responding to finger swipes, but if I push it down it still responds in that way. I've tried taking the battery out many times but still no use!

    Go on settings n change the sensitivity of the trackpad, that might help

    It won't move at all haha. It seems its a reuglar problem with this model according to google.

    Having used a friends 9300 I can safely say it has one of the worst trackpads ever - it appears to be really unresponsive to meee =(

    try taking battery out whilst still switched on, might help, sometimes does with other issues on blackberrys, like a mini reset

    take battery out mate, and sim card, ull see a metal plate, press on it quite hard but not too hard. then turn phone on. should work

    do you have the latest update?, since updating mine it runs smooth

    You should have got a disc with your BlackBerry. Install that on your computer and you can backup your contacts from there. uk.blackberry.com/ser…jsp

    I have an old B berry that has a variety of faults that occur at different times. Sometimes the track ball freezes in place, most commonly it wont scroll down. I find the solution is to lick the tip of my finger (not to wet) and then try it. The ball seems to work when its wet.It sounds weird but I hope that helps someone. (No comments about ball licking either from the more mature section of HUKD users.)

    the way i fixed it was buying a new trackpad for £2 on ebay and replacing it, lost my receipt so i couldnt send it back.

    seeing as this keeps getting rebumped, it can be locked by mods seeing as it's "resolved"
