    Every when are you supposed to clean the trackball? Just when it stops working properly?

    I had this problem on my 8300, it would go vertically but not horizontally. After a few frantic minutes, it started working again. Must have had some dust? or something in it even though Im OCD about keeping my baby clean.

    Hey guys, my blackberry is fairly new and I would like to get your suggetions to what cool downloads everyone is using. I've noticed on a few sites that we can change the color of the trackball. If so, how and is it safe to do so?

    thanks for the help everyone!.. when i went into tech center i was told it was a "blackberry glitch".

    vzambito- you cant download the trackball color change for the 8130. theres no different colored lights in it. =( sorry! i ran into that problem when i first got my pearl. i think the theme downloads are cool, i really like the today theme plus.

    I have this problem as well. The trackball is erratically non-responsive at the worst times. What is the solution to the "blackberry glitch" that they mentioned?

    Any tips, pointers?

    Its not a matter of the track ball being dirty cause I just got mine and it does that. Its defective and you just have to return your phone. there is no fix if its a defective phone.

    I just bought a pack of 3 balls on eBay. They were better than the one that came with mine. If I have a problem I just swap it, extremely easy to change and cheap.

    the lady told me basically to deal with it. i went to the corporate store, & my husband works at another sprint store, she doesn't like him so she basically just wanted to get me out of there.
