I recently got a brand new BB 9810 replacement under warranty preloaded with 188.8.131.527 (Telus' office OS). It worked perfect for about 2 weeks and all of a sudden the touch screen is acting up. When I got to tap to select something it selects something on another part of the screen. Or sometimes it doesn't react at all. I can't flick scroll properly when on web pages.
So the first thing I did was a battery pull. Now when do this it 80% of the time solves the problem. But then at some point later the problem comes back. Sometimes it's a few minutes afterwards and then other times it will be hours later.
So this led me to think it was an OS issue. I did a complete reinstall of the OS and it worked for the rest of the day. I was so happy. Work up the next morning, it worked for a couple hours and then problem came back again.
I thought maybe it was a problem with that particular OS so I just loaded on the newest official OS 184.108.40.2065 from Voda phone. Once again it worked for a few hours and problem comes back.
Seeking that it works for a while, I'm lead to think it may not be a hardware issue... Has anyone else had the same problem and found a fix. I got this device back in December as a replacement the week before my original 1 yera warranty was over b/c that trackpad on that one stopped working. What horrible luck I have b/c now that my warranty is over this one is acting up.
Getting really sick and tired of the issue. I"m holding out for BB10 N10 so need to get this going for another few months at least.

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community.
To rule out anything that is being restored from your backup file causing this issue to recurr, could you please try to first back up all of your data then perform a clean reload of the most recent BlackBerry® Device Software released by your network provider? For further instructions, please see the following KB articles.
For Windows®: "How to perform a clean reload of the BlackBerry Device Software for Windows" http://bbry.lv/GI9beY
For Mac: "Perform a clean reload of BlackBerry smartphone application software using BlackBerry Desktop Software on a Mac computer" http://bbry.lv/J0UN1U
Once this is complete, could you please test without restoring any data from the backup? If the issue doesn't return without the backup file, then could you please do a custom restore of only essential data and test again?
Let me know if this resolves the issue for you.

Thanks for the reply.
So in the past few weeks I've done clean reinstalls already. Done the normal wa, done it with BBSAK wipe. Have already tried not reloading back up etc... I think I've tried it all. I've posted on Crackberry and got some help from those over there b/c it seems as though there are a handful of others who have the same issues and said certain os's help to fix the problem.
When I install a new os it works for a bit and then starts up again with the issue.
btw, do you know how long the warranty is one replacement handset from RIM?
