    Trackball become dark because of dirt from our hand or pocket. This can be cleaned but this is a bit tricky. You might damage your HH.

    There are a number of ways to clean it, Some use De-neutered Alcohol, (what ever the heck that is) and a Q-tip to clean it. Me personally I remove the ball form the phone and put it in a solution of bleach and water about 50/50 in a closed container, swish it around a bit. And then rise it really good in clean water. you can remove the track ball using

    read it carfully, DO not for this type of cleaning take the trackball assembly apart! It is a real pain to get back together.

    It would be cool if the trackball was completely black to begin with, then it would never get dirty.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~mines completly black now!! Hazards of working in print, I get ink on my fingers which transfers over. I'd have to clean it everyday to keep it sparkling!!

    Yeah being black would be cool. But then probably the black would wear off from being touched all the time. lol... how ironic would that be.

    That's why I always wash my hands before I use my BB. But, you won't be able to keep it white forever

    At my company, we discovered that many of our trackballs were turning black not from dirt from our hands, but rather dye from the insides of cases and holsters that we were using.
