Re: 9900 trackpad rolls by itself in the sun and wind

I've honestly not seen that on the 9900... yes, I understand you have several friends who have.

 

It is not normal.

Re: 9900 trackpad rolls by itself in the sun and wind

Somebody replied to my post and posted yesterday here that they are having the same problem. I bought thephone in May of 2012. My wife has a 9900 which we bought in December 2012. She has the same problem.

Re: 9900 trackpad rolls by itself in the sun and wind

Hi, I experience a similar problem with my BB 9900... It looks to me that the track pad Heat Sensing technology was not "properly" considered for outdoor sunny (relatively high temperature) conditions, and so by merely sensing the heat in the immediate atomosphere it tracks down automatically.

Critically examining mine, I realised the pad becomes "super sensitive" in the relatively  hot temperature outdoors so much so that just waving your finger over it (without touching it) trigers this rapid automatic rolling effect.

Your thoughts?...we need a savior though.

Re: 9900 trackpad rolls by itself in the sun and wind

Blackberry must address this. It is a problem. They should resolve this for the Bold 9900 as well as prevent it in the upcoming Q20
