Can anyone help, the trackball on my BB has stuck, occasionally it will go sideways ... BlackBerry Curve forum
Can anyone help, the trackball on my BB has stuck, occasionally it will go sideways but it will never go down so basically I can't do anything at all. T mobile very helpfully told me to go to a local tmobile - I am in Greece working, and there is no tmob here. Is there any way to move around the screen using the keyboard, so at least I could access msgs. Thanks
When I had this problem on mine I was able to clean it. To do so you will need to carefully, with a small screwdriver, pop out the silver trim ring around the ball. Then remove the ball and clean it out. You need to be extremely careful in doing this so you don't break the tabs holding the trim ring in. Good luck!
go to a drug store, pick up some q-tips, alcohol (windex or tape head cleaner also works) and some compresed air.
take the q-tip, soak it is some alcohol and rub it in the trackball. with your CLEAN finger roll the ball around in all directions. after a minute blow it all out with your compressed air.
i would use the qtip and alcohol as suggested, however i would do the compress air- if you do, there's a chance that dust might go in to your screen, which will result in a bigger issue

good point, but the PSI in those cans is not very high. I have never pushed crap into my screen.
its not like you are going to get a 150PSI Porter Cable compressor and blow it into the bb
