    I've never owned a trackwheel blackberry. I have the 8330 curve but would like to get my hands on an old BB to say I have. I'm kinda collector of BB's.

    Had the 7100i nextel and loved the wheel, but had to upgrade and hated the track ball at first on my 8350i. Like all things, it just took a little while to get the feel for it. Now I couldn't imagine using the wheel

    I do and don't. Miss it because used the dino 8700 and loved it. Even upgraded to OS 4.5. Then, moved to pearl and now using bold. Don't miss it, because still hold on to the dino, although not using BB service, using data and other services with a pre paid sim

    I have never used it myself so I have nothing to really say about it. I mean I kind of had my hands on one before when my friend had a BB with one but I didn't really get to fiddle with it like I do my own BB with a trackball.

    I went from the 7290, to the 8703, and did not miss the wheel at all when I jumped to the 8830. From the 8830 I went to the Curve. And now that I'm used to my Storm, I don't miss the trackball at all either.

    Sometimes, I touch non-touch screens forgetting that it won't do me good.

    As the IT manager, everyone brings their troubled BB's to me...I am constantly trying to click Curve screens. Drives me crazy! I'll end up pushing on the screen 2 or 3 times before I realize I don't have my Storm in my hands.

    Went from a Dinosaur 6710 to my Pearl in 2007. Now, I couldn't ever go back.

    I don't miss it really. I kinda gave me carpel tunnel when I had my ancient 7105 but hey that's just me.
    What's the matter? CIA's got you pushing too many pencils?
