    now i may be a newbie (by the way LOVING my new curve!) but i do kno that i cant do this with an application because i have a curve but i was wondering if i could change the treckball manually? i was looking on youtube and only found videos for the 8310 and 8320. so my question is can i go by that? or are the phones different? is there anyone who did this and if so can u tell me how to do it?

    thanks again,
    u guys are GREAT! lol

    You could always remove the trackball that you currently have and dye it a different color for free. There have been several posts on here from people who have done this with great results. Do a search here on how to dye a trackball and it will give you lots of good info! Save you a small bit of money as well.

    The curve dosent have a multicolor trackball light (I don't believe)
    Just the pearl does. If you get software it will just change the status light color

    Somebody correct me if I am wrong.

    it only works on the pearl 8100 & 8110 the sprint pearl 8130 doesnt not have colored leds inside... and instead of dyeing the ball i heard people put colored paper to cover the white light when you pop open the trackball

    She is asking if she can manually change her trackball to another trackball that is another color. She is aware that she can't do it with an app.

    i wouldn't recomend buying them already colored because thay dont have the same texture as the white ones and dont work that well.
