    I ran into a friend yesterday who had a RED trackball on his Curve, but wouldn't tell me where he got it. I searched the net today, and found a store on ebay that sells this "berryball" in many different colors (pink, red, blue, green, black, yellow. And they will paint the white ring any color for an additional charge). They look awesome, but are kinda expensive at 15 bucks a pop. I"m wondering if anybody out here has purchased one, what they think of it, is it worth it, and is there anyplace to get them cheaper? Thanks!

    Is it just the ball or the whole assembly? I've tried to take apart that *@$^! assembly and had to purchase a new one...a $30 mistake!

    Its the whole assembly. I actually just ordered the red one, I inquired about it. They purchase the oem assembly and dye the ball. Seems pretty sweet. I'm awaiting its arrival.

    what do they dye it with? do you think it's something that can be done at home?

    It sure can. Search on the forums. There's a length thread on Dyed Trackballs.

    Thanks for the heads-up. There are some awesome threads on dyed trackballs, and tons of pictures. Guess I'm called a newbie for a reason. Thanks!

    Go on ebay, and search for colored trackball. You will see a flashing Pearl with a red ball pictured. They got sales on there for all their colors tho.

    No problem. There is quite a variety of colors it appears, and they are willing to do custom work it appears for the additional charge. Any question i would direct to the seller, as he is very good at getting all questions answered timely.

    I tried to dye my wife's trackball pink, but it looks like it's just dirty now.

    The few that I have seen look amazing. I am still debating what one will replace my 8900 black trackball.

    Hi,

    I just purchased a pink berry ball from berryball.com and I can't wait for it to come in!

    For another option, go to nancy drew.com and there are instructions on how to use marker or nail polish to get the same look for free!

    I likey my colored trackball. Too bad the housing is just a little loose. The side "brackets" on the trackball housing aren't as tight as my original, so the whole unit shifts up and down while in my device. Think I'm gonna put some tape or superglue on it for a snugger fit.
