    sorry man...we tried, gave it our best and still they $15 dollar trackball has pretty much all but bricked your $250 device...gotta love technology...well post back if you get it working again...sometimes just letting it be for a while helps maybe pull the batt for 2 minutes...who knows stranger things have fixed situations like this before

    gonna keep a bunch of wet-naps handy from now on so that i don't mess up my BBs trackball...clean thumbs=clean trackball

    Why don't you use the thread up top? Take it out and clean it. Then just out it back in. Will save you the hassel of gettin a replacement.

    Just my 2 cents

    Listen to Reddog187. I had the same problem and took the pearl out and did the wash in hot soapy water and have not had a problem since. Had to do it twice and will have to do it again but not that hard just take care when doing it.
    Good luck.

    Update... It works fine for now. I took it apart this morning and cleaned it but that did not work. I just out it down while I was working today and it was fine just now when I went to use it.

    Ok see, that happened to me 3 times... This is my 4th pearl. I am very careful with it now. The only time I noticed it started acting like yours was after a major drop of the phone.. Few days I would notice the trackball isn't rolling.. Now I'm quite careful about this 4th one. But yeah if this breaks again then get the curve Lol.

It never did anything...

    A few weeks ago, I called TMobile support and, in pasing, mention that my trackball didn't scroll down. Guess what, that send me a replacement phone.

    That was the easiest fix ever!

    Actually that's why I'm recommending calling tmo, I've had this problem twice, and twice they replaced my phone, they even extended my warranty

    Yep, just call Tmobile as long as youv had the phone for less than a year for manufacturer warranty... And also as long as there's no water damage.

    They'd also charge you for shipping. But its not too bad.
