Default A few months with the Pearl... impressed.. but

Please Login to Remove!

But my rollerball seems to have died tonight.... well its on its way out anyway. Couldnt scroll up and after some pursuasion it did scroll up but feels lumpy and still plays up.

Is this a common issue with the BB Pearl?

Other than this issue which im sure will be sorted with a call to O2 tomorrow... Ive loved the Pearl and hope to have it back working propery very soon!

Default carefully

If you decide to take apart trackball and cleand it. I cant stress enough how carefull you have to be. San Francisco had posted some good instructions with pictures but I cant seem to find them. Maybe you can I found his instructions after I followed some garbage one. Again use the proper tools and procedure and you'll come out happy
