    so im not sure exactly why, but lately my trackball has been sticking. it will either only go up and down, or only go left and right. if i pull my battery, the problem solves itself, but its a real pain in the neck to do that all the time. has anyone else experienced this? what can i do to solve the problem??

    You could try cleaning it. Put a little amount of rubbing alcohol on your finger and just roll the trackball around. Can't tell you if it'll work but you can try.

    Also try Pressing in on the trackball, then push in the direction it won't go. Do this a few times. usually clears it up.

    Must resist jokes!!! Must resist jokes!!!

    Seriously
    I use a cotton swab and alcohol. But when its not reacting to movement I do a restart before I do a battery pull and that usually works.

    I noticed mine was looking pink, too! but I was also eating water melon fun dip... I wanted to hurt myself, then, I thought I'd kept all that pink death away from my phone hehe.
