    I got the new housing I had mentioned in a previous post of mine, and it came with an all new tracball setup, an holy cow! It works so much better!

    So people, remember to clean your balls, or get new ones, it makes all the difference.

    You are so going to have one of "those" threads, but your are correct. Clean trackballs do indeed make a difference (I will not fall into your trap ).

    How sad it is... Storm owners have no ball(s).

    And yes if you hold the phone faced down and push/roll the track ball around it free's up any loose debris, but there's nothing like taking it out to clean it, or just straight up replacing it with a new one...

    I never clean my balls...................................
    They are so cheap and easy to replace on my 8310 I dont even clean em anymore. Move funny, get to dirty? - I just pitch em and replace.

    I'm not trying to be too pervy with this topic, but some people don't realize that some of the problems with their berries can be from the tracball getting dirty, and the whole phone being dirty causes lots of problems.

    And don't forget everybody, when cleaning your balls don't forget about what's under them as well. It can get very dirty and linty in there.

    Sorry I couldn't resist, lol

    Until necessary, ya don't really clean them, but when you're stuck, it's pinch and roll 'em around, loosens them up pretty well, ahh!

    Easier to get things done without gritty balls.

    I remember YEARS ago reading a document that came from IBM on instructions for cleaning mouse balls (original 5120 PC). It was a hilarious read when taking it out of context.

    O_X I certainly hope it makes the difference. I have an 8100 total housing on the way from a guy on eBay - the guy that had this BB before me was a total pig (bought the 8100 off craigslist) and my trackball is yellow. ICK. O_O (at least the yellow on BlingBall shows up properly, lmao)
