    This may seem too simple, but I've had that happen a couple of times. I just lock my phone (press and hold the mute key) then I roll the ball around a few times, and press on it fairly hard a couple of time, them press and roll, too! I unlock (press the mute key again) and then all seems to be fine. This may be too simple of a fix, kinda like giggling a wire, but it has worked for me!

    If you are a smoker, take a tiny (very tiny) amount of cigarette ash and roll it into your track ball. Sounds wiard but works like a charm. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I have had the same problem if you will turn off ur device and press firmly on the track ball and roll it around it will become unstuck.. also if you will look very closely at the white rubber surrounding the ball sometimes "I dont know how" the rubber will get stuck under the ball or vise-versa.

    Take a hammer and smash your phone! Lol

    What worked for me is to lock the keys or turn the phone upside down and push in on the tracball and roll it around. What works better is canned air while the phone is upside down.
