    Track Ball

    Advertisement



    I have removed and cleaned my trackball a few times but its getting to the point that east and west does not work too swell I believe I have just worn the darn thin out. I am assuming I could get a replacement, but not sure. I am trying to hold out til my contract is up and the Javelin hits Tmo if it really does. Does anyone know for sure on the trackball or do I have to take it to the shop?

    I replaced my trackball with one I bought off ebay for my 8130, works just fine.

    I got the trackball assembly with the chrome plastic ring for about $12-$15 with shipping and got it in just 3 days from the day of purchase.

    I have bought several replacement balls at this site - they're cheap and they work great. No problems at all.

    I had a hard time tracking them but they came pretty fast anyway - I think they came from China or something - the links to track didn't work for me. They were great, though - easy to replace without almost any effort - I ordered more yesterday.

    Do this at your own risk!! My trackball was getting pretty bad so I went to the tmo store in the mall and popped the trackball off the demo pearl and swapped them while nobody was looking. Works like a charm and it was free.

    I got my replacement here as well. Very good, didn't know however, that this company ships from China. Waited about 8 days for my trackball.

    One thing I learned though is that when you order from CNN.CN make sure you order tons! I have a lot of friends/acquintances with BB's and let me tell you it makes you and them both happy having the spare sparts laying around
