    So my boss gets a new Bold, finally he has wised up. :-) The damn thing makes this almost "whoosing" noise when you use the trackball. I'm stumped because mines doesn't do this then I find under the keyboard settings a setting for the trackball to make a "tone". Does anyone actually use that? Damn noise drove me crazy.

    It should make a slight clicking noise. But yes, some people use it, some don't. Just a matter of preference.

    Sometimes I use it, sometimes I don't. Just to change it up every once in a while. My Bold's trackball, even with it off it sounds like its on. My fault though - I colored it.

    I've muted mine, but you can still it..it's making a whoosing noise...should I turn down the trackball sensitivity?

    wouldn't it just be the noise the trackball makes as it rubs against the rollers inside? that's what it sounds like on mine.

    I hate that audible trackball setting in the options.
    On mine, at least. If others want to use, their choice.

    Hmmmm... Never set audible track ball before.
    Had to try it, not a fan. It does make a sound when muted, but that is just rollers rolling it seems.

    But I love my red sharpied trackball! I had to try that too after I read it here, and it's great!
    I figured if it didn't work I would order a new red one, and I am no worse off then before.

    I didn't like the audible click at all. It drove me bonkers.

    Those are the only options that should be there.
