Default 2 weeks old and trackball problem

Please Login to Remove!

Trackball wont go up, should I take it apart and clean it or call ATT and get a replacement?

It's only 2 weeks old so I should get a brandnew one but if the new one is going to have this issue then maybe it's not worth the trouble??

Well you can either take it in or do the following. Depress the trackball and while holding it down roll it different directions. After a couple of tries to should dislodge whatever is blocking it. You may want to but a pouch if you keep it in your pocket to keep it free of "stuff".
