If you have a 8120 (like your profile says you do), removing the trackball is very very very easy. Just pry off the silver ring with something small (be careful) there are 3 plastic tabs (one on the very bottom of the ring, one to the left, one to the right) that keep it in place, you don't want to break those. Just slap the phone against your hand and the ball with fall right out. Then just clean it with some rubbing alcohol, or even a wet-nap if you prefer.
Put it back together.
Oh ya, you should probably do this with the phone powered off, of course.
You tube probably has tons of vids that will walk you through the entire process.
Honestly, very very easy!
