    I have a 9650 and the trackpad is already cracking and getting beat up so I want to replace it. Will a trackpad for the 9700 or the 85xx series work for my 9650? Thanks in advance.

    Have you checked cnn.cn

    How long does it usually take for new parts to come out for phones?

    After looking at some specs it looks more as if the 8530 trackpad would work with the 9650. Can anyone confirm anything for me?

    I looked and they have trackpads available for all devices that use them except for the 9650.. Still searching..

    No only the 9650 will work. The ribbon layout is different as well as the connection.

    No problem. You could go get it exchanged if it's not functioning properly.

    Well then, since you have no warranty have you opened it up and did the track pad fix, adjustments thing users were doing. It will help with clicking.

    Yep, I did the tape fix and got the track pad completely level. My problem is that the clear plastic started to chip on the left side and me being anal about my devices thought I could scrape off the entire plastic coating and it would be fine. Big mistake. Now I have an ugly trackpad that doesn't work nearly as well. So therefore I'm looking for a new one I can just swap in the old ones place.

    No, unfortunately not. You have to take apart your entire housing and completely dissemble the phone to get to the trackpad. aka voiding your warranty if you do so.

    Not exactly from normal use. It started with normal use then I started picking at it and it got worse.
