    Trackball Rattle

    Advertisement



    Hello, Pinstack. I recently purchased a Pearl (couple weeks ago) and so far, I really like it. Switched from a Razr = teh suck! This forum has been a really great source of info for a new BB user -- never had to open the users manual.

    One thing that I have notice, since day 1 I recall, that the trackball has been loose. I was told this is normal and that the Pearl's... pearl is touchy. However, when I shake it, I can hear it rattle. It's especially annoying when I'm talking to someone in my car, and every bump, I can hear it rattle. Even the person on the other line could hear it... at least the call quality is good

    Is anyone else experiencing this with their Pearl?

    you can always pop out the trackball assembly and see if anything is wrong with it.

    Before I'd do that, I'd take it back to the store and have them look at it, or at the very least compare to another Pearl. When I first touched my Curve's trackball, it was a lot looser than I thought, well at least compared to the computer trackballs I've used. But the other Blackberrys I've touched were all the same.

    It shouldn't make any rattling noise at all. Mine doesn't have any play at all in it, nor do any of the other models I've tested. Like BenMarvin said, take it back to the store, compare it to the others. If its anything different than the others, go ahead and swap it out.

    Hey, mine too! But it's very quiet. I've never shaken my Curve until now. But they say "never ever shake your baby".

    No rattle here and they were just giving you a BS line about all of the Pearls pearl rattles. Take it back and demand a new one. I've had 3 Pearls and none of them rattled at all even when shaken really hard.

    I took my pearl apart today to get rid of lint under the screen. Nothing should be rattling. I'm shaking it now and nothing is rattling. I guess I put it back together right.
