    I have never done it but I have heard that the trackball ring pops out and the ball can be cleaned I would think with power off. But you might want to wait till you get more info since I am new to pinstack and only had my BB Pearl less then a year. Good luck.

    There's a thread about cleaning the Trackball. Try via the search. You can try also to blow out any dirt with a can of compressed air.

    Trust me this isn't the trackball being dirty or anything plus it's brand new and very clean.. a dirty trackball wouldn't be going crazy on the screen then not moving at all and when it goes crazy im not even touching it..

    Actually it would. It's happened to me before and I'm sure it's happened to others.

    I had a similar problem with my Sprint 8130. I took it to the Sprint store, and the tech there cleaned the track ball out and then cleaned out where the track ball mechanism sits. Works great now. Verizon should provide the same service, as should the other carriers, usually for free. Does this help?
