    Hey everyone. I currently have a blackberry Curve 8330 and I just put a new green housing on it and I think it would look incredible with a black trackball ring.

    What is the fastest way to strip the chrome off the original ring??

    Not sure about stripping the stock ring but you can buy black rings.

    The only way I can think of doing it without ruining the ring is with a Dremmel tool using felt polishing tip...
    I don't think it would be worth the effort.

    I'd just spend the $0.89 and buy one...

    Soak it over night in a container of good degreaser like Super clean....I've heard it works well

    Just buy a brand new one and have the service provider install it.

    No need for the service provider to install it. You could instann one quicker than it takes to go to the bathroom...and I mean number one haha

    As mentioned, degreaser like Super Clean works. Other strong acid/base solutions also work:

    Oven cleaner, drain cleaner, acidic toilet bowl cleaner, etc.

    Straight bleach also works, but may take several days.
