Please do; my friend has a 8830 and the trackball is LOVELY. I compared my 8130 to another one at the store today, and the one I have seems fine. I'm keeping it on 80/80, which is working well for me. It's just not as good as the 8830's.
In the meantime, I'm LOVING the phone. I'm already pretty used to SureType.
