Man return it asap. No reason why you should stick with something which has even a minute problem, let alone something as major as this.

I dropped my BB Bold 9700 sometime back.The fall was ,say,20ft and thereafter there was a red light glowing

took the batt out,inserted,and then put another SIM in and the phone started up,but the trackpad was not working.Everything else was working.

Went to a reputed multi-brand service center here who tried everything but it's status quo after 2 months.They have checked teh circuitry buy can't get to the problem.

Currently the phone starts up,shows some software license agreement but can't acknowledge and move forward since the trackpad is not working.

Guys,any solutions?

Is it under warranty? And did they try and replace the trackpad? Maybe a new one will work? Or otherwise maybe the PCB is broken.

^^ they tried replacing the trackpad first but that did not work.

they worked on the PCB - no success.

Phone is no longer in warranty.

looks like I'll have to source a pcb ; else sell the phone in "as is where is" state.
