    Try BBrepairshop.com. If anyone has, they will. Good luck! And how did you take your pearl out to clean?

    Here's an Idea. Someone in this thread is thinking about trying to replace his pearls trackball with a marble or something of the same size:

    That sounds kinda cool.

    I don't think a marble has the same texture as this trackball but I could be wrong. Good luck finding the trackball or a replacement!

    Maybe you should have tried cleaning it out with canned air first? To late now

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I was looking in my junk drawer lol and found a silver ball that looked about the size of the trackball. I would try it but I think I would mess something up, or lose something. Maybe I can find it again hehe.

    Why would the texture matter? The trackball is just rolling the wheels inside the phone just like a ball on a old-skool mouse does.

    Re: Lost trackball

    A marble is hard and smooth which might not grip the hard plastic pieces well whereas the pearl is soft and textured which easily grips onto them. But we'll never know for sure until someone tries it. I think it would be kinda cool. Maybe someone could put a real Pearl in it's place. Or maybe something like this: http://www.nebeads.com/SearchResults...e=6mm&Type=Any

    There are some size 6mm in there. Are we sure that's what size it is?? These are beads though, so they probably have holes in them.
