    Is it not functioning at all? Did anything happen to the phone before this happened? Did you try a battery pull??

    No battery pull yet. Is that known to help?

    Nothing's happened. I noticed it had stopped functioning in camera mode, but when I turned my phone on just now it moved a little bit, but wouldn't go up. Then suddenly it just stopped moving.

    Could be something as simple as lint or some other debris

    Try the battery pull while the phone is on. If this doesn't work, try amazingly's advice. Fyi: the battery pull is almost a universal cure all.

    Battery pull didn't work so I'll have to try the above.

    It only wants to go down, not up or to the side. Very annoying.

    Bah, well - it goes side to side now but my trackball does not want to go up, even after being cleaned. So annoying.

    It goes up, but I have to apply more pressure than usual. Any ideas?

    Cleaning you BB with canned air is the best way to keep lint and otherws oout of your trackball and keyboards and other ports. Give that a try, if doesn't work pull the rind off and check the trackball.

    I had this same thing happen, I found the instructions for cleaning the track ball, and had to take it apart and clean it. Turned out there was a large piece of pocket lint under the ball hampering the rollers. Once I put it back together, it worked better than it did when it was brand new.
