this is great info thanks, since i sometimes hand my phone off to my techs with their greasy paws lol, i have found it to be a hassle to deal with trying to tell them not to touch the ball, of course sometimes my paws get greasy too, although i do try to keep them clean since i am dealing with paper work and such but sometimes tire dust and stuff i seem to forget.

I'm not sure if this was posted on here but if you bring your phone into a warrenty center and you show them that you do that it will be considered phys damage. that will void out your warrenty on the phone. just a heads up. so make sure you dont do that in front of them
Just like to start and say Hi to everybody as this is my first post... Hey
I took it apart. But I bent the lil metal ring and couldn't put it back together. My own fault. So i tried to fix it but ended up loosing one of the lil wheels.
So i ordered 2 new trackballs off ebay for 25$ with shipping for both.
I went back to the store where i bought it, they told me to call rogers and they would send me a new phone. I called them on a Friday afternoon and i got my new (refurbished) blackberry today (Monday) so all in all wasn't so bad except I had to go around for 4 days with no trackball but finally managed to figure it out.
So with my new refurbed saved me from having to buy a new keyboard ( it was starting to sag) and a new housing for the phone ( the smell on it from my cigar smoke fingers was getting to be unbarable)
wow i couldn't get it to click back together so i did the best i could and put it back and its OK.. ill just get a new one, btw the 91% pure isopropyl alcohol didn't help with the discoloration of my trackball, when i get my new one, i will experiment and let it soak over night and see how it comes out
