Question by Tina H: I have a Pearl Blackberry from T-Mobile. The track ball started malfunctioning recently. Any tips?
I have the insurance - which I guess guarantees replacement (for around $ 100). But, I do not want them to say that it is cosmetic (and then not replace it) - I really need a new blackberry because the track ball gets stuck when I need to move the cursor left. ANY TIPS ON HOW TO MAKE A SUCCESSFUL INSURANCE CLAIM? Thanks everyone for the help!

Answer by Jeremy Kitching
You can try the following:

Turn off the device. Then press down and hold the trackball. While holding the trackball roll the ball around in all directions. You want to be pressing the trackball pretty firmly when doing this.

  3. this is why i dont buy full touchscreens. like the palm pree. the red blackberry and other devices are just fine. but i want a qwerty keyboard! that slides out. its more convinient for younger age groups like me, i love texting <33

  4. Unfortunately this video repeatedly demonstrates one of the big issues with the BB Storm. It is difficult to accurately type, even for minor edits it often takes two attempts to hit the right key. The BB Storm is the best solution for my needs (for now) but it still needs a lot of work. If you are reading RIM here’s a tip, but a context appropriate “.com” button on your keyboard and put a decimal point “.” on the number pad. Jeez, do we have to explain everything to you guys????

  5. Do you have to turn any setting on? because it wont work on my storm from vodafone? Thanks, Christian

  6. Those features are standard on every better-than-average phone. Nothing amazing here. And you can listen very well to music on an HTC Touch Pro 2 (2 excellent distortion-free stereo speakers) or a Nokia 5800 (some distortion, but excellent bass). Cool thing to put the phone on a desk and play some music through speakers. I don’t know why you mention iPhone – hyped up piece of junk. I like BB phones a lot, but many people aren’t happy with the Storm. Read some online user reviews and ratings.

  7. @reborn BlackBerry Storm may not have the easiest keyboard (sorry if it takes skill to use) but it still has many amazing features, such as copy and paste, voice dialing, and a 3.2 mp camera w/ auto focus and zoom. And yes the speaker doesn’t sound the best but what kinda loser listens to music through it i have a moto rocker and its sound quality is epic and its picture and sound are both better than iphone so stfu

  8. They are actually getting ready to release the storm 2, codename BB Odin…that’s whats with the price drop. How bout you chill out on the negativity, its all a matter of user preference. Just get another phone if your so bothered by this one

  9. Hey, I have a tip: get a different phone. I’m not surprised at all Verizon is already selling it for $50. Gorgeous screen, but also the single worst typing experience I ever had on a cell phone and an ear-piercing, all-treble, sound coming out of the speaker – practically unusable for music. Notice the guy making mistakes as he types. Takes me 5 minutes to write/correct 1 sentence on it. Thumbs down to Blackberry for this model.

  10. haha i’ve had ten phones and i younger than that guy/girl but mine were the same phone they just brake dont get the lg scoop it sucks its already messed up again
