    Hello,

    The following BlackBerry phones have the trackball interface:

    Pearl 8100 / 8110 / 8120 / 8130
    Pear Flip 8220 / 8230
    BlackBerry 88xx
    Curve 8300 / 8310 / 8320 / 8330 / 8350i / 8900
    Bold 9000
    Tour 9630

    If ordering a trackball, is there one trackball that is compatible with multiple models of the above phones? Or does each phone have a unique trackball?

    Thank you!

    I'm almost positive they're all the same. I know for sure the 83xx/81xx/88xx/89xx/9000 are all the same, as I've changed em all. Some of them are just harder to get at

    All trackballs housings and mechanisms are the same for every model that uses a trackball. Some stores also sell an outer ring for either the 83xx series or 81xx. There are also colored trackballs, but these are usually worse than the original white or black because they tend to get oily quite fast, because the dye they use sucks. The black and white is the way to go, being black the one that looks usually better for which dirt is less noticeable.

    8900 and 8910 has the same Trackball, u know why
    I don't think 8900 and the 83xx have the same Trackball
    The Pearls and 83xx do have the same trackball (i think). - Saw it on Youtube
    8900 and the 9630 have the Same trackball too. (just done a research)

    8900 and 8300 have the same trackball, just different color, size is the same, everything is identical except color. They are interchangeable. All trackball devices use the same trackball size and trackball housing. They just vary in color from device to device.
    For example, the 8900 uses black trackball with metallic housing, and the 9000 uses a white trackball with white housing. But, you can use the 8900 trackball in the 9000 and vice versa without problem. So if you are going to order a blackberry trackball, be it white, black, red or any other color, it will fit all trackball devices. I've changed them pleeeenty of times already and still have like 20 to spare from white to black going through blue and red.

    Also, the tmobile g1 uses the same trackball as any blackberry.
