Blackberry 8520 Buttons Not Working



So I've had my Blackberry Curve 8520 since around October 2010 so my warranty has run out a long time ago. Basically, the problem is that every single button on the phone does not work. When I say every single button I mean keyboard, the green and red phone button, the back button, the menu button, the audio, camera and side buttons, the music control buttons, literally just every single button. I doubt it is water damage because this happened back in March or so and I just gave up trying to fix it and I tried it again today to see if maybe it finally got dry after a few months. Is it possible for the buttons to just stop working? Before all the buttons broke, I had problems with the O button. It was sometimes working and sometimes not working, then every button just broke. Also when all the buttons were broken, I was sometimes able to just button spam and it would work for a few seconds then just not work again. Anyone know a possible fix?


Thank you in advanced!

Sorry to hear you are experiencing hardware issues with your BlackBerry® Curve™ 8520 smartphone.


Your point of sale is best able to investigate device hardware issues. It would be advised you contact them, or if they have a store you can visit, stop by and talk to a technician.


Hope this answers your question.
