I have a 8300 curve and very recently its been acting very weird by doing the following:
1. trackball click only works occassionally
2. it strangely brings up menus even when i havent selected that option as yet
3. sometimes it automatically activates the voice dialing feature even when im just trying to dial a number
4. when in the bb messenger it enters the message before im even finished typing it constantly.
all in all its been acting this way and wont stop it happened very suddenly is it a circuit board problem or button issue? not very familiar with the technology and no one has been able to assist me with it...please somebody gimme something i can try to solve it.

Hi and welcome to the forums!
No data will be lost when doing the following: pull the battery while the device is ON.
Replace after a minute, Let the device reboot 1-3 min, see if the problem is fixed, Thanks

If you didn't pull the battery this time,
go to options/status and send me the file free and file total numbers

doesnt seem to be a low storage space issue, wish you could actually see what the issue is. even navigating the application menu can be difficult as it sometimes selects applications before me acctually entering. also the backlight also comes on for no apparent reason occasionally. also when receiving calls it does not light up even though that option is selected.

Actually your memory IS low. 15mb is considered minimum. I usually run in the 30's with 5 apps.
However, I have not see a thread that describes your problems due to memory. You can try reloading
the device OS, and see if the problems are fixed. The other option is to take it back to the vendor
(if under warranty) and request a new, not refurbished, device. Let me know how you want to proceed.
