Trackwheel not working

I am using a BB 8700c Handheld and my Trackwheel is completely not functioning.


How to use the BB without the Trackwheel mainly to send emails and to Chat as well ?


Many thanks in advance for your kind and valued reply.

Re: Trackwheel not working

Its very difficult to use BlackBerry 8700 serise without trackwheel. If you disable Dial from Homescreen option from Call Log -> Options -> General Options -> Dial from Homescreen: No then you will be allowed to use keyboard shortcuts. For example, pressing M button will open up your Messages folder, pressing G will open GoogleTalk, pressing X will open Windows Live Messenger, pressing N will take you to BlackBerry Messenger etc.
