Blackberry Style 9670 - Rocker Volume Keys

Hello My Fellow Blackberry Users!


My "Rocker" keys (the convenience keys for volume) will not work for my "Now Playing..." unless I am in the "Now Playing..." screen. Usually, beforehand, I could skip songs, play/pause, volume +/- while it was flipped close, or if I was using another application.
Last night I downloaded a few apps, just some minor Alarm Apps. Musiclock? and Multi-Alarm ("The Best Free BB Alarm App!"), or something like that.
I really need these keys, I broke my iPod so this is my mp3 player and having to open up my phone and now playing screen just to change a song, or turn up my volume.
If it's closed and nothing is running, it will cycle through new texts like normal. If I'm listening to music and it's closed, when I hit any side key: the outer LCD will light up, but won't change my song, volume, or play/pause.
This is my first serious thread, so please help me out!

Hey iToasty,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.


Just to make sure it is not hardware related I would suggest you perform a backup and then do a clean reload and test the rocker keys before restoring any data: http://t.co/nkzR2KN
