    The only issue the trackball has is the lint getting caught up in the mechanism. If you keep your BB in your pocket without a case covering the trackball this will happen eventually. It is easily cleaned though.

    Thumbs down TrackBall doesn't work

    My track ball is unable to scroll up and down, It would still work it was just difficult to get it to respond. I'm really frustrusted because as soon as the warranty ends, the track ball stops working.

    I just joined this board because my Pearl's trackball started acting up as well, but in a somewhat different way.

    On Saturday, all of a sudden, the trackball stopped working as a button. It would scroll fine. It just wouldnt select. I tried hard reset, blowing on it (lol sounds so wrong), and it still wouldnt work. So i turned it off. took out the battery again, and pushed down on the trackball hard.

    Good news is, it now selects.

    Bad news is it now selects even when i dont want it to. I try to scroll and it acts like its being pushed sometimes. Even pressing down the "end" or "back" keys sometimes activates the select. Sometimes it even selects stuff on its own. For a minute i thought it had been hacked or something lol.

    The other bad news: ebay = no warranty.

    I'm almost afraid that i pushed down on it a little too hard. Any ideas? Blow on it some more? pull it appart? Anything? I dont want to have to buy a new phone... especially since this one was a gift from my girlfriend!

    Thanks.
    This happens almost daily for me. I think it's because I work at an oil change place and my hands are dirty all day. It got to the point last night that when I would press the "Menu" button it would pull up a Q then a E real quick. A 5 would be a 4 and Enter would be back. I just kept hard reseting it and today it works fine. Oh, it might also be the fact that I use the phone in the shower. Don't know.

    if you have had the phone for less than a year, send it in and get a replacement. its covered under warranty. Otherwise use the enter key on the bottom right instead
