Blackberry alt button problem.. - March 5th 2011, 09:20 PM

Now, I can't decide whether it's me or my phone but my alt button is located underneath the a button and a few days ago, whenever I pressed a, the alt button would come on at the same time which meant I'd put a * instead of an a. I'd correct it after a few attempts but sometimes it'd come on so the next button I'd press would be the alt symbol, not the letter. As I've said, I don't know whether it's me pressing the alt button at the same time as the a but I've had this phone for months now and not once have I had this problem and I doubt I'd suddenly become clumsy when nothings changed about the way that I write things so it's lead me to believe it's my phone.

Has anyone else with blackberrys had this problem? Does anyone know how to solve it? It's unbelievably frustrating because 9 times out of 10 it leads to me putting a * and about 3 attempts to actually manage to put an a.

I've had a Blackberry since June, and that has happened a couple times before, I believe. Nothing that chronic, though. It's possible your alt button is sticking? It's only the a/* sticking?

I would try turning your phone completely and then rebooting it. Usually that fixes any problems I've had. Also, if that doesn't work, take your battery out and put it back in, to do a complete system reboot.
