    Sorta... Anyway I just burned my thumb on a hot pan on accident, enough to get rid of the tip of my fingerprint (don't worry it didn't hurt). The problem? With a smooth thumb, it no longer grips the surface of the trackball, so I can't use my thumb to roll it. kinda sucks, lol

    They probably did not have that in mind when designing the trackball... in the meantime, stick a band-aid on it!! I hope you feel better haha

    And I hope the bandaid helps to grip!!

    HAHAHAHAHAHA. Thanks for making my night!!

    But yeah, you're right. It is annoying. Sometimes I'll get lotion or something on my fingers, and I'll have a hard time with the trackball.

    If he burned off his finger print, would it ever come back? I'm assuming it will be scarred permanently.

    Use your other hand?

    Fingerprints grow back as soon as new skin grows back. If it doesn't, wouldn't all criminals purposely burn their fingers to avoid prints?

    Yeah I would use the other hand or the index finger...

    My analysis: I would say there is an actual flaw that was overlooked by RIM.....WHEN THEY ALLOWED YOU TO OWN A BLACKBERRY!!!!

    Every once in a while the tips of my fingers will get sore from using my phone so much and the skin will peel off kind of like a sunburn.

    Has anyone else ever had this happen?
