I'm going to post this question which I've been struggling with for some time, and the solution I just discovered in hopes it will be useful to someone in the future.
My app has an options screen with an all-black background. All of the fields - various types - have overridden paint() methods to make the text white or some other color.
I've had literally a handful (4 I think) of users complain that they can't see the cursor in the options screen. All of these users had 8130 or 8330 Verizon BlackBerrys with 220.127.116.11.
Up to this point, I had pretty much assumed this was a bug in 18.104.22.168, or some other, as yet undetermined, incompatibility with my app.
The solution -
Verizon included a default theme in these devices called "Verizon". This theme forced a black cursor / highlight. (a poor choice imo) Changing the theme from this default made my app usable.
Solved! Go to Solution.
