Wondering if it's just a coincidence, a bit of bad luck, or if RIM produced a bad batch of devices. Searched around the internets and haven't stumbled onto anyone else having a similar issue.
I think a lot of glitchy trackpads are due to poor connections at the ribbon cable connector. I would just use a tiny dab of dielectric silicone on the contacts, reconnect and test.
New trackpads are only $20 thru amazon.com and amazon.com/bb (blackberry app OTA download)
Toolkits are $4 thru amazon too
Step by step videos are all over youtube
