Will the 9850 Torch respond to a stylus input? Will the Z10 respond to a stylus input? Is anyone out there using a stylus for input or selection on any of their apps?

Re: sylus

I just tried using my ball point and it would not register on my 9850.

Re: sylus

BlackBerry touchscreen devices will not respond to a stylus like some other brands because they rely on the heat from your finger. However, there are some specially made ones that are not so much a thin, pen-like stylus but rather a thick tube instrument with a rubber tip. I'll be darned if I can recall the name of a company that manufactures such devices but an internet search should yield some results.


I hope that helps you. Smiley Happy
