    Trackball collects dustballs. Blowing in the trackball void sometimes works also. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Take a Q-tip and alcohol and clean the ball. Press and roll it as you use the alcohol and Q-tip. that will remove any grease or dirt and pressing will dislodge any lint or dirt that might have built up.

    You can also blow some canned compressed air around the ball while pressing on it.

    And finally, don't put the BB in your pocket. That is probably one of the best ways to dirty your ball(s).

    as am i...i just can't make any more mouse ball jokes...i've filled my quota...

    as for my issue...apparently, i'm quite persuasive cause i went to the cingular store where i bought my Curve...had a few..*ahem* ...choice words, and left with a brand new Curve...so that seems to have solved the broken ball(s) problem...

    couldn't help it, sorry...

    Man, this thread was really helpful considering the fact I am down in Venezuela for work right now and here the provider takes up to 15 business days to give you a new equipment after is checked by the tech support dept. and they consider needs a replacement for warranty. Renting another phone is available but they always out of them. anyway "lick and roll it" was a terrific and quick solution like most things in life, lol, Thanks Again!
