Default Pearl Unlocked, Trackball Doesnt Work, Need to Sell!! Help

Please Login to Remove!

Guys, I have an 8100 T-Mobile bought Blackberry that is three months old and I have had it unlocked. The trackball quit working and I tried to take it apart and clean it, well now I cannot get it put back together and i have bent a very small pin on that silver casing so it wont fit back together. I have all of the parts just that one little metal thing bent. We'll the phone works perfect other then that and I have all of the original box..etc.

I want to get it fixed and sell it, or just go sell it but I need some help. What is the best way to see if I can get it fixed? It's under warranty but I do not have a T-Mobile account though :(.

Any help here please?

you need a new trackball assembly for your device, as long as you didint damage something internally.

Thanks for the reply, I have looked and can not find replacement parts. Does anybody know where I could perhaps buy one?

You might forget about fixing it. I recommend selling it on Ebay as it is. Some people need parts so people will buy it from you even though it's in pieces.

Forget about the warranty, you already took it apart.
