    My trackball is getting really dirty.. and I know they dont really clean up to nice.. I was wondering if anyone sells different colored track balls or anything.. I have a titanium pearl and I would like to have a gray trackball or something that shows the dirt a little less

    Unfortunately you cannot buy different color trackballs sorry to break the horrible news on you. However, you can do something as elaborate as to placing a colored piece of tape under the trackball itself though it's kind of a pain in the A**. It's easy to remove the trackball yes but the tape coloring well, that's all up to you. Follow instructions here ------>http://www.instructables.com/id/Blac...ALLSTEPS#step0

    And if that doesn't work. Then go here: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com/f8/color_trackball_on_curve-91243/



    Enjoy your turkey left overs

    Oh wait...what model pearl are you using? if it's an 8100 you can just download a program that can use the color led under your trackball called Xcolorevent I think GO HERE: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com/f10/xcolorevent_for_8100_trackball-51064/


    ONE MORE THING: DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!! THIS WILL VOID YOUR WARRANTY.(NOT THE COLOREVENT PROGRAM BUT THE INSTRUCTIONS ABOVE THAT INVOLVES DISSASSEMBLING YOUR TRACKBALL/PAINTING YOUR LED)

    I don't see why it would be that hard to make a gray track ball (for purchase) I don't wanna color the ball myself and get the thing gunky and stuff...

    When I destroyed m trackball, I went on eBay to buy an oem case replacemen.

    In the case replacement It came with a trackball. Not bad. 10 dollars for an oem case and I got a trackball out of the deal.

    Good luck ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    The trackball on my 8110 is a little loose and grainy. I really like the tight and smooth trackball on the Bold. Are the replacement trackballs, either OEM or others smooth and tight?

    Cool, I may have to give it a shot. My trackball functions properly, but it is a little loose and grainy. Are these any different than OEM trackballs? There are a lot of different sources for trackballs.

    Yeah you can buy trackballs and I think they can sometimes replace them if its a problem @ your local wireless provider
