When I first got the Curve 8520, my trackpad worked great, except it was overly sensitive vertically.
I couldn't type anything on the keyboard because the cursor kept moving up.
I brought it in to get a new phone, and the trackpad on it works fine.

Posting multiple times in a row will not warrant a quicker response to difficulties. There are a lot of posts for us to get through and sometimes it takes us a while to find an answer for you.
For ALL of you having problems with your trackpad, I first recommend using the following link to upgrade your OS to the most recent available from your carrier. Yes it works, and yes it will restore all your data. (I used it last night to go from 126.96.36.199** to 188.8.131.520 on TMobile).
I'll continue to research, but please do update me if this resolves your issue.
Disclaimer: I'm just a regular user like the rest of you. I have spent a lot of time learning the limitations of the Blackberries to know how to fix most problems. If I have suggested a fix, please give a kudo and mark as a solution!

I had the same problem. Solved it with the paper wedge trick. Aparently the setup doesn't make good contact. View the movies in youtube.
just put paper between the metal cover of the trackpad and the battery.

I am having the same problem and I am really, really sick of it. I switched out an 8900 because the track ball was jacked up, got a 9300 now it doesn't work. Leave a pretty bitter taste in my mouth about Blackberry in general.

Did it really work? Because I've seen it on Youtube but I could not believe it, I sent this phone 2 times for repair with not luck. and BTW the update does not work to solve the trackpad issue. Please let me know if it still working. Thanks
