I had same problem, 8520 trackpad stopped working. I went to service center they replaced it. I bought 9300 this time rather than getting 8520. After about 2 weeks I am seeing same problem in 9300 too. trackpad is dead slow and sometimes not responding. doesnt work even after restart. i have to remove the sim and put it back to make it better. But after few hours it goes back to same state.

It's a HUGE problem. I've had 4 different phones in the last 6 months (Bold), and they all have the very same problem, after a few weeks the trackpad freezes intermittently and the cursor jumps all over the page. It's ridiculous that I should pay $400 for a phone, not to mention the monthly rate plan, and have to put up with this. As someone said, the phone is basically useless without the trackpad.

Mine works sporadically and inconsistently; however I did notice that when I covered my thumb with cloth or my hem of my shirt it worked perfectly! I think it's something to do with friction and sensitivity.
Has anyone tried that and found the same?
I'm not happy with that because I can't go around with my hand stuck up my shirt all the time so will be looking for some guidance from BB on it - or anyone here(?)

I got this 8520 in November 2010 as a replacement for a 4 month old 8520 that was defective. The trackpad problems started shortly in the spring of 2011. Letting the phone go into standby works some of the time but not all the time. I just upgraded to OS 5 but the problem is still happening.
This model clearly has a design problem and RIM needs to stand behind its products and fix this.
