    i have to hold down my trackball to click on anything or a about a second and i have to press harder than before. Fixable or do i need to take it to the sprint store for repair. Any ideas?

    "on anything or a about a second and i have to press harder than before."

    did you mean you have to click and wait for it to start loading? and the clicking itself is harder too?

    have you checked to see if you're low on memory? thats what usually causes a lag... and as far as clicking harder, if youve had the device for a while... it may be wearing down... but ive never heard of trackballs wearing down before...
    i see RED...

    Have you cleaned the trackball assembly yet? There are plenty of threads here on disassembly. It's pretty easy to do.

    I've done this before too. When I did it, I thought it was memory problems. But it wasn't, mine was water damage. So, your probably looking at some water damage. That's not under your insurance program either. The only way to fix it would be to order the tb circuit board and replace it. Or pay the price for the new one at the store.
