    Well, I don't remember noticing any difference between my Pearl and my Curve. It would be nice to be able to check, but a day before the curve came out, My pearl locked up one way (dirt). Tried blowing it out with Canned air. Didn't work, tried again and it blew the ring off and the pearl fell out. So I can't go back and compare.

    My curve feels ok.. but I've noticed a difference when I played with my mom's pearl. I hope they improve this on the 8320 and all the future builds.

    actually you can change the color of the trackball by taking a sharpee (blue for example) and coloring the LED blue. If you dont like it, get some ispropyl alcohol on a q-tip and wipe it off

    For the curves that I have used they have all seemed to have the ball sunk in more than the pearl and don't have the definitive feeling that you pressed the ball down.


    Does anyone know if you could take the roller assembly and transplant it to the curve or vice a versa?

    it feels good to me. the t-mobile curve however feels like the trackball is lower down than the pearls! but it feels great to me

    My 8320 trackball makes more of a noise than my pearl when I roll it. But the click feel when I push it is fine.

    Re: Curve owners... (Trackball Question)

    I think it depends on what batch you get, i work for at&t and it seems like its hit or miss. I know some curves feel flimsy but mines is perfect none of the keys move and the trackball feels sturdy but my boss has replaced his twice because the bottom of the screen beginsto crack underneath from the pressure. My old pearl felt fragile but a couple coworkers pearls work great. So from my experience its a tie

    Re: Curve owners... (Trackball Question)

    Sidekick 3 used owned me. I still had it, which did not selling yet. Anyway, I compared sk3's trackball to curve's trackball. sk3's trackball is very strudy and solid over curve's trackball. But Curve's trackball is good reponse and navigator quickly..

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Using my curve from tmobile I have had a very good experience with the trackball. Feels much sturdier than my pearl's. So does the keyboard. I had to turn my sensitivity up 10% but still works great!

    I have some eposure to an AT&T Curve for a month or so, plus a dozen or so TMO Curves in the last few days, i have found, consistently, that the trackball rattles like a maraca.

    This is my first BB, but mine sounds a bit like a shaker...

    Re: Curve owners... (Trackball Question)

    I don't actually have a Curve but did go to the store yesterday and play with one and this was the first thing that I noticed.

    The trackball felt awful. Much less "solid" than my Pearl. It felt like there was sand in there.

    Of course, this could just be that demo, but that was the first thing I noticed about the Curve.

    seriously....stop stressing. the curve far FAR outperforms the pearl. get the curve now. there is no reason to worry about the trackball at all. the trackball works flawlessly and precicely! no problems at all.
