    Hi Jimx, there are a couple things you can do, more if you are out of warranty. THe First one is oc course a battery pull, there is limited help with this,. the Most likly thing is to push the Mute button on hte top till the phone goes into standby, press the track ball in firmly and scrool in all directions for 10 to 15 seconds then tack it out of standby, If this fails and the phone is under warranty. Makes sure you have the latest SW on the phone. as most carriers will look for this prior to filing a warranty. If you are out of warrnty the track ball can be removed and cleaned, or replaced.

    Don't worry about the cleaning part. The first time I did it i was so worried I was gonna screw something up But I followed all the directions in the posts here and it was a breeze, you may have lint or something stuck in there that you can't see.
    When I first took mine apart and cleaned it, I was like GROSS!!

    You might want to try a q-tip with rubbing alcohol on it first, and/or a can of compressed air to knock any foreign body loose. If that doesn't work, then yes, try the step by step walkthrough.
