    Man I want the red... (The whole reddrvgon concept would really work)...

    Question for all you modders out there... Is there a way to change trackballs without killing the warranty?

    Really easy to swap on the older BBs, but on the newer ones much trickier to remove. I just use buy spares from cnn.cn and color them myself. It's easy enough to do. I have a bright pink one in my 8330 right now and my son has a metallic silver one for his 8130 pearl.

    What are you using to color them in? Permanent markers? Paint?

    Yes permanent markers for mine. I colored my son's with a silver paint pen. Just did it so I'm not sure how long it will last, but looks cool right now.

    That's definately something to look forward to...

    Here's a problem I've just run into though... There are 6 screws in my bold, when I remove the back cover... ONE has a white sticker tab on it... If that comes off, which it will to get to the trackwheel, I can kiss my warranty goodbye...

    I have read that you can very gently carefully lift the sticker with an exacto knife, but yes if the sticker is visibly damaged you can jeopardize your warranty.

    Also I remove the ball from the trackball assembly to color it. Be very careful with the very fragile tiny parts to not drop them or bend the metal clip that holds the assembly together. Do it at your own risk

    I highly recommend DYING the trackball over using a marker. I've heard lots of reports of the marker-ed trackballs fading and bleeding, but Rite Dye works VERY well. Cheap too, 2 or 3 bucks for a box of dye that is more than enough for the trackball.. I'll dig up a link if anyone is interested.

    Thanks for the heads up, what is the link and/or the ebay store user ID? I actually purchased a blue colored trackball on ebay today from ebay seller http://myworld.ebay.com/giantpurpledog/ - Berryball.com.

    They were $13.99 and free shipping and with these colors (copied from their site)

    The BerryBall is available in many colors...atomic red, stealth black, fresh green, sweet pink, cool blue, juicy orange, bright yellow, berry purple and more! The BerryBall is a direct replacement for the trackball that came in your Blackberry! The swap is extremely easy, and only takes about a minute! Your new BerryBall is the perfect accessory to make your BlackBerry stand out in the crowd! BerryBalls are super bright, and the color is very rich. The LED light shines through all except for the black.

    Darryl71 which seller or link were you talking about, I would like to check it out as well? Thanks
