trackball not working
from time to time, my trackball moves around but the cursor on the screen wont move.
the ball even feels different then from when it works.
COuld i maybe send my blackberry in to get a new one? If so, to where?

Try cleaning it with a cotton bud & some alcohol. Or, next time it gets stuck just press down on the trackball firmly and move it around until it scrolls normally again. It's what I did

Yea same thing happened to my trackball. My gf was holding on to it for me but kept it in her back pocket(huge mistake).
She gave it back to me and I instantly noticed that it wasn't working properly. Like you said it doesn't feel like its scrolling quite right.
I just replaced it with a black one and I figured since I was going to have to take it apart might as well change the bezel as well.
Thus being the end product:

Check on line, if there is an "ATT Device Support Center" nearby you can go there and let them take a look at it. Many times they have parts like the balls in stock. I got one swapped out on my 8820 there - as long as it's in the warranty period. They were very nice about things in Whitehall PA and I didn't have to go without my beloved BB.
Hmm thanks, I'll look into the device support center.
Thing is I have a scratch on my screen, and I was hoping to get a new one. and coincidently, the ball stops working from time to time, so maybe I can just get a new one haha.
but if not, then i'll be fine with just the ball.
