    I have been told that I can change the color of my trackball. I have looked through this site to try and find out how, but I have had no luck so far...can you help me by telling me how to change it or where I need to go to find out how? Thank you so much fellow CrackBerry users!

    Cannot change it on a curve. Only on the pearl. There eas a thread on here a few weeks ago about pulling out the ball and putting colored paper over the light i think. there was also one about coloring ball with a marker. YIKES

    The only BB that you can accomplish this via software is the 8100. For any other BB you have to disassemble the trackball assembly and put colored tape over the LEDs to achieve the effect. Be warned though, that this could void the warranty.

    On wap so can't see your device. Only 8100 can change color. Look for colorpearl app if that's your device

    The only way to change the color of your trackball on a Curve is to pop the trackball out and put a piece of colored film/cellophane over the LED...(ex: using a red sharpie to color a piece of clear tape and put it over the LED). Then reinsert the trackball.

    OK, how do you pop out the trackball? I just looked at it and tried to do it...but I am afraid I am going to break it. Do I have to take it apart or something?

    Also coloring your track ball will void your warranty if color is not removable. Just FYI
