    No, you don't actually color the trackball. You color on a piece of folded over tape and cut it small, then place it over the LED. So it's not permanent and you can switch colors.

    That Makes Sense, can I do that with an 8830? Is the trackball accesible enough?

    Luv your themes b
    Y the way NancyDrew, very artistic!

    Same spot as the curve and BTW I use transparent tape(doubled) and then use a sharpie over that.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~that is a really good idea,coloring tape with a sharpie.Brilliant!

    Now with that being said.if you use tape and put it around the LED,would that cause the tape to melt do to the heat,and leaving a residue on the mother board.

    The tape is doubled so the residue never touches the LED directly. Second of all LED's generate very minimal heat. If you are concerned you could use anything clear and thin such as those transparent sheets for overheads.

    There is no room for the plastic sheet or whatever you use to really move around, its held in between the Motherboard and the trackball assembly.

    After a while (a month or so), the LED faded the colored tape. I had to re-apply the with the marker.

    The LED on 8330s is located under the Blackberry key to the left of the trackball. This makes it very difficult to add any kind of color no matter what method you use. I was able to barely reach it with a fine tipped sharpie to give a slightly blue hue on mine.

    Wow, glad I actually checked this thread instead of just shrugging it off as another deadend discussion about colorpearl for the 8330 or something.

    Too bad I prefer the monochrome look of my silver curve and theme/wallpaper or I'd give this a shot.
