    Hi everybody. I know a lot of the bold users on here have been wanting to put a black trackball in there blackberries so I thought I would post some pictures of mine. I took my blackberry apart and put it back together on my own. Its was extremely easy to do. I do recommend that ladies please be careful if you have long nails like myself. It does take a bit longer. I followed the video on cnn.cn you can click here to see the videos for assembly and disassembly. Here is the link for it BlackBerry Bold 9000 OEM black bezel- Acer, Mobiado, Apple, Samsung, Panasonic, NEC, Dopod/O2, Alcatel, LG, 3G, Motoro . I didn't purchase the ball from there. The trackball is currently out of stock at cnn.cn. I purchased mine from ebay. When you do a search for it type in BLACK TRACKBALL. Atomic Trackball will not work and nothing will come up for it. I paid 19.99*i know a bit pricey* with free shipping, and it came from China. Sorry the Pictures do not have better quality I took the pictures with my husbands iphone. If you have any questions feel free to ask






    **EDIT** CNN.CN has them in stock for 9.99 here is the link if your wanting to buy one BlackBerry Curve 8900 OEM trackball- Mobiado, Motorola, LG, SonyEricsson, Panasonic, Acer, Tools, Nokia, Sony, BlackB

    Aren't the trackballs made of Delrin? If so, you can dye them with RIT dye Just a money saving tip (assuming they are made of it :P )

    I recently installed a black trackball in my curve. I like it alot better than the stock tracball. Also added a all black housing for my baby, and I must say she looks pretty sweet!

    Has anyone noticed a difference in scrolling with the atomic tracball? I haven't but it still looks good! Highly recommended.

    You know I'm not real sure on that. That is something to look in to though.

    I noticed that the ball is a lot smoother than my stock trackball that came with my bold. That's the only thing I've noticed. My white ball felt grainy I guess you could call it that.

    Oh its easy to do on a curve. Just pop the ball out carefully. Your lucky you won't have to take the entire phone apart to do it

    haha yeah but that sliver ring can be a pain sometimes. Did you have to disassemble your bold to get to the trackball?
