I've had the same problem recently. I was able to take it out and clean it (good instructions for doing so here on PinStack). That helped for awhile, but then it got to the point where that didn't work. The trackball assembly is not expensive. I bought one for about $6 (I think including shipping) from Amazon (an Amazon retailer). I've had that one in for a couple of months now and it works just fine.
well i am new to the bb thing well not anymore but just got mine in aug of lastyear so i got to wait to get a new one and telus dont have the bold yet lol so

es una mierda la famosa bola
Thank you! (NYC)
I did exactly what this guy said. I'm female, so I used some pressed powder from my compact, and rubbed it into the ball - and voila! The ball is now fully functional. Thank you - now I can avoid a trip to the crowded Verizon store here in midtown!
