when pressing buttons other things appear...

I tried mashing the trackball to open up my messages but a # sign appeared like i was making a call.  Everytime i hit backspace some numbers appear.

Hi and welcome to the forums!

Were you in the homescreen and "mashed" your trackball on the messages icon?

I want to see if I can duplicate this, so I want to make sure I do exactly what you did.

Thanks

Okay, what screen did the # appear in the message queue or the call log?

I believe what happened is you accidentally  'Mashed" the call log Icon. If you hold your phone like I do, you might have accidentally pressed the q (#) sign with your thumb.

Think that's it?  Is your call logs icon on your home screen?

Please let me know.
