    well, you can take it out and clean it and see if you can get it to work. there may be something underneath it preventing it from pushing down.

    alternatively, you can order a new trackball assembly relatively cheap from cnn.cn

    i just replaced mine. not hard at all.

    Everything Cherri has advised you of is correct. What I am concerned about however is the actual motherboard on the BB. When you click(Press down) on the "pearl" it makes contact with a bronze looking item. Make sure that you ensure that it is clean. You can clean this contact with rubbing alcohol but make sure that your battery is out and you ensure that the alcohol is dry before you put it all back together. If you clean it and it doesn't work you may have a damaged trackball assembly or worse a damaged contact(The broze thing on the Motherboard)

    How long ago did you get your BB, you may want to contact your carrier?

    I have used it for about 2 weeks. I bought it on ebay.. I will try to contact at&t about the problem, but it may be a problem since I live in Norway
    But I will try to clean the bronze thing whit alcohol first
