    it shouldn't take too much to keep the look of the ball, but to rough it up enough to get it to work...glass would be good, could make it look frosted when you get done with it...

    I would buy one if glass pearl balls went for sale. If they work of course!

    I saw some 5.5mm ball bearings on ebay if anyone wants to give it a shot. I'm going to try to find one locally to see if it would work. But I do have my doubts with something polished.

    I'm always up for tinkering on the software side, but I'm always a little leery about doing it to the phone itself...once someone does it and posts some pics as well as a walkthrough, I'll give it a try...

    this is be an amazing idea, polished wouldnt work as cool as it would be
    something like a plastic BB is practical tho
    Im failing to see how this could damage your track system, but thats just me
    if I had a device to measure, I start going through all my pellets, but u dont lol sry

    i'm thinking maybe a metal ball won't work because of the weight but who knows we have to try it!

    whoever is making the replacement trackball, be it RIM or another company, might want to take a look at the possibility of making some colored transparent balls. they already have the mold as Im sure they are blow molded. They would just have to change the plastic.

    That makes sense, it would at least be something a little different. I still say metal would be fun.

    I think we're still waiting to know if it's worth tearing apart our phones to do it ourselves. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I'm almost thinking of doing it myself this weekend if I have the time to get to the hardware store, but I'm still worried about breaking it cause it's no longer under warranty.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Now are we sure that the trackball is 5.5mm? I don't want to pick up the wrong size if I try this.
