    Yeah, if anyone gets it to work, it's about the only tinkering I haven't done on my phone yet. I think a steel ball would look cool.

    A glass ball would be phat. It would look cool when it flashes during a incoming call

    I just measured the ball with a pair of calipers. The ball is 5.5mm to let you all know.

    Good luck to ya. My best advice is to get one of the cheap replacements from fleabay or cnn.cn first. Just to have a standby! ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I can't seem to find a bearing I'll keep looking. I may have one at the home front.
    Yep 5.5mm or 0.2165 inches. However you want to look at it. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    i would have to agree that with a glass or metal ball that is polishied wouldn't work. Because if you look within the setup, the ball has to be 'ruffed" up a little to provide friction against the gears that roll the magnets.
