    How To: Perform a Blackberry System Test



    Woohoo for RIM having secret stuff in our OS and not telling us!!! Well I am spilling the beans. RIM has a secret little menu hiding inside your BlackBerry, as long as its running OS 4.2 or higher.

    This little secret is a self diagnostic tool, which will help you figure out if something is wrong with your device.

    To access this menu simply go options > status > then type the word test.

    Once the application opens, click open your BB menu and click start.

    Then simply check off the hardware you want to test.

    This will be a handy tool if you need to check someones trackball/pad or other pieces of hardware.

    It was testing everything in turn except the last one, SD Card InsertRemove Test (which I didnt want to test) and it got to Keypad backlight Test and failed to do anything except go black.
    the only way to get it running again was a battery pull.

    But the report says it passed lol

    I am viewing the report now and its comprehensive to say the least.
    I might try again without that test included.
