How to keep trackball clean
I just picked one of these up, so my only experience prior was with the trackpad of the 9900. I love the relic but how does one keep the ball clean? Right now (besides my bis not connecting grrr) my issue is I can't scroll down. It was working fine until this morning.
And now the ball will physically move down but I can't I can't scroll, it makes using the phone impossible..

Once properly cleaned (or replaced) my solution was to never pocket it without a case or holster to avoid lint/debris. Also, be careful not to use the trackball with lotion or anything else on your hands.
Consider looking around for a couple other videos for additional tips that this video doesn't hit (search trackball blackberry 9000 clean) Another option as mentioned is to order a new trackball (or 2 or 3) and replace it.

Try putting a microfiber cloth on it, then press down and roll the ball around. After a tiny bit you will be surprised how much gunk can get in them. I used to do this periodically to one of them I have, the other was never used enough to need it.
