Sometimes the button will work and some times it will not or sometimes it will get stuck depressed.

It is strange. The feel of the button still feels normal, you can feel it push in and out just fine but it has a mind of its own. The scroll function works just fine.

any help would be great, Thanks!!

i believe the correct term is "track ball"

search this problem through the forum, someone had this problem, i think they had the pearl, but there are instructions on how to take the pearl out and depress the thinggy underneath and that might fix it.
good luck

this happened to my 8830 four times. I just brought it back to Verizon and they replaced it 4 times... total waste of time, but i finally got one without that problem
