Default Loose Pearl Mechanism

Please Login to Remove!

I got my Pearl 2 days ago, and since I have had it the trackball mechanism seems loose. The functioning is fine, but the pearl and its white circular 'casing' move around under the plastic chrome colored ring. It slides only about a 1mm up and down, but it is driving me insane. Should I be worried about this?

You should compare to a friend who has Pearl, as well as check in a local retailer (ATT or TMo) and just see what others are like. If yours is truly loose, get a replacement.

Your does sounds slightly looser than normal, to me.
