    I Lost my trackball a couple of weeks back...and somehow never go a replacement.
    I ve been shortutting everything and have been able to use certain applications without it.
    Recently my sister was TRYING to use it and i guess her witch nails scrapped off the little gold sticker button
    Is there any way to replace this or is my bp done forever.
    & they all get put in boxes,little boxes all the same.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    I'm assuming you mean where the trackball assembly goes? If that little thing fell off, I think you're done.

    ITS Not exactly a STICKER its the gold button the thing under the whole trackball
    like imagine if you were to take off your trackball all the way.ITS More of a gold button i was wondering if there was anyway to still use it you know.

    I really think its what allows the trackball to press down.
    I still have it but i cant just stick it back on you know.

    www.bbrepairshop.com has trackball assemblies and will put them on the BB for you if you want (or feel uncomfortable doing so yourself).

    I don't think that little gold part is covered by the $70 trackball replacement from bbrepairshop. I think that's just to pop in new trackball assembly only. If you don't think you can handle it, you may want to contact them directly about the issue. Or see if you can find a kind soul at your carrier that could help you with a warranty replacement, even though it's obviously not a warranty issue.
