    had my curve for a while now, since sept or so. and my trackball i just noticed today is black. it was kind of stuck and wouldnt go to the left when i was on my menu, and i noticed it was like. legit black. i know it wasnt like this when i got it, and just wondering if its just..dirt? or bc ive used it so much or what? wondering if anyone else has come across this problem before?

    Comes with use and yes dirt can cause your problem. Look around as these can be replaced.

    you can also take it in to a local corporate store that has a technician and they'll usually clean it out for you and test it.

    might help to know. If you have the 5.99/month gives you an extended warranty for the device as well, which means if it needs replaced and your store sees that they'll call US to get it replaced. 4.99 only gives you insurance through asurion, and, well, you've read about them.

    Just wet your thumb with water and work the trackball. That usually works-out the gunk for me.
