    Default Where to buy black trackball and ring

    I am looking for a reputable seller that I can order a black trackball and black ring from. I searched on here but didnt really find any advice on where to get it from. There are plenty of threads about how to do it.

    So, all you people who have replace your Curve trackball with a black one - Where did you get it?

    Try www.dinodirect.com. The offer free shipping worlwide and very reasonably priced items. I've bought the trackball and the ring from there.

    Its been about 50/50 for me on ebay. Bought from Honk Kong and 2 of the 4 trackballs worked. They replaced them without any problem, but had to wait almost 4 additional weeks for the replacements.

    You can find them for really cheap on ebay, however as others stated most of them come from Hong Kong, which could be like a two week wait.

    I would suggest spending a bit more money on a local site if you don't want to wait.

    So cnn.cn ships from Aisa? It seems like that is the most recommended place to order from though. How long does their shipping take?

    It comes from Hong Kong to be more specific. When I order stuff from there, it usually takes a max of 2 weeks. Some stuff can sometimes arrive as long as 4 weeks for some customers. Depending on customs and such.

    Wow!! I don't want to wait that long.

    Has anybody ordered from blackberrytrackball.com? They ship from NY or FL and guarantee that your trackball ships within 24 hours of placing your order.

    FAQ: Frequently Asked Questions - BlackBerry Trackball Replacement Kits - Fix Your BlackBerry®

    - USPS First Class Mail - This method is the slowest we offer and can take up to 14 business days. Usually delivery time is much less but we cannot offer any type of timing guarantee.
    - USPS Priority Mail - 2 - 3 USPS mail days (Monday - Saturday)
    - FedEx (Standard, Priority and First) Overnight Service - Next Business Day. If you would like Saturday Delivery service, please contact us directly.
    So up to around 2 weeks. Better than waiting 4 weeks

    dealextreme.com

    They have trackballs for $3.85 and rings for something under $2. Both in several different colors. Free delivery all around the world, but takes about 3 weeks (at least to Poland, where I live). They ship it from Hong-Kong, China.

    Thanks everybody for the advice. I just ordered on on Amazon. I got a black trackball, 2 rings (silver and black) plus a litte plastic tool for removing the ring. All for just under $10 shipped and most likely I'll have it by the middle of next week.

    DinoDirect.com is great!

    I got my battery charger from them with gift cards, and it's cheaper than ebay and cnn.

    I bought a pack of 5 on eBay. It came within three days and haven't had any issues. And it was only $6 with free shipping. The trackballs came with the rings also.
