Hello Team,

do you know if I can change the touch screen of my BB 9530, to conver like and "one touch" like IPhone or Android platforms ??, I'm not sure that If I load android to my BB 9530 the touch screen method will change or still like now "dual touch" or "pressing system", do you have any idea ????

Re: Problem on Blackberry storm 9530

I own a BB storm 9530 about a year and a half old and I am bogged down with similar screen issues.


I have reached a conclusion after hours and days/months of work on the internet and the device.


The touch screen issue is a  physical touch sensors issue.


There are 2 ssolutions

1. change the screen - this youtube video will show you how to remove and replace the device with a  new touch screen( https://www.youtube.com/watch?gl=US&v=Ums-FvfobpA ) (You can buy a spare screen from an online store - amazon sells it here - http://www.amazon.com/Touch-Screen-Digitizer-Blackberry-Bundled/dp/B0053WUECY )

2. Get an external Keypad device that is compatible with the storm 9530 (Connects using the micro USB)- presently I found 2 products - Freedom Pro external Keyboard  and CoolMIR Blackberry handheld keyboard


I have been unable to get either a keyboard or a spare screen in India, my emails to BB India go unanswered. I may altogether replace the blackberry with another product if I cannot repair it asap.

Re: Problem on Blackberry storm 9530

Touch screen problem resolved with a freedom pro keyboard. :-) (Had the keyboard shipped from Canada.)
