i lost the little trackball so i need a shortcut to get to options on my 8100
Why dont you just order another trackball, or if your getting rid of the phone borrow someone elses trackball long enough to do what you need.
thats a tough one, tried to get there on my 8300 without the trackball, couldnt do it
It isn't that easy, It takes a couple of days to get to me.

Argggh, guess i`ll have to wait.
your welcome, I feel for ya. you wont be 100% till ur Berry's working right. Stay on the Stacks, and the time will hopefully pass quickly for you.
seems like you gotta order a new one. or your just out of luck.
try putting a earbud in the ball hole and move it around. that ight hopefully move the cursor. once options is highlighted use enter key from keyboard. lol dont think i'll work but worth a try.
If the whole assembly is missing, then nothing would work. there are tiny magnetic rollers on the assembly that tell the sensors where the ball is moving.

Well, there is one really roundabout way that I can think of. You could hide all the icons but options. But then unhiding them all might be a bit of an issue. Best option would be to get a new trackball asap.
