    Red Trackball?

    Advertisement



    I noticed the trackball on my son and daughter's 8320 Curves are white and mine is a frosty red. I am not talking about the lighting through the ball, as the difference is the same when they are turned off.

    Is this normal variation? I am the type of person that worries about insignificant details

    Thanks,

    has it always been like this? it actually sounds pretty cool! It doesn't sound like anything to worry about though. Maybe you just have a very special Curve.

    Yes, It has always been that way. However, I didn't notice the difference until I saw theirs.

    its normal, everyone ball "changes" colors. all the oil, dirt, cheetos will slowly discolor it.

    Maybe you should try some Smartfood Popcorn to turn it back to white.

    Huh... Not something I think everyone wanted to know. Back on topic though my phones' ball is red also, but its happened over time.

    Mine is red too, but its because the white was too bright, and I took it out and colored the light with a Sharpie marker

    The trackball lighting cannot be changed, via application, on the Curve. It has one color...
