Hardware button failure
For a while now I've had problems where all the hardware buttons on my 8125 do not function properly. Specifically, the IE button doesn't start the browser, the messaging button doesn't start the messaging app, the phone buttons don't start the phone app, etc...
The camera button occasionally works to start the camera program but stops working after that first press. All the other buttons, including the slideout keyboard do not work at all, with the exception of the volume button, as noted below.
Another symptom is that the volume button, if I forget it's broken and push it by accident, will cause the volume app to popup and try to adjust itself up or down repeatedly. It's obviously thinking the button is stuck.
I know this has got to be a software problems since they all failed at the same time. Does anyone have any idea what might cause this problem and how I might go about troubleshooting it?
I have done a hard reset twice to no avail. The phone was literally 30 days out of warranty when I first reported it to Cingular/AT&T and they wouldn't cover it.
