    Make sure that there's nothing that could be preventing it from moving and that its clean. If its not moving at all then you may want to exchange it.

    its just dirty.
    put it in standby or turn it off.
    press the ball down and push it in the direction/directions its stuck. u might find some lint, or dust stuck to the ball in that direction. just give it a bit of a clean and you are off again

    I honestly think it's a memory leak, this happens to mine as well. the trackball moves, but not on the screen, the berry is freezing up due to a memory leak. See where your memory is at the next time it happens.

    This happened to me once and I went crazy. However, it turned out that I had a lot of lint around the ball.
