Ok so Anthony (I can use his name now since some of you know who he is) bought me the Curve for Christmas and I cannot put it down!

I'm starting to wonder if I'm going to wear out the trackball (is that even possible?).

I got the Curve on December 22, and a month later the trackball is greyish black when not in use and yellowish when in use. LOL

I think I need BB rehab!

Addiction has been known to happen.

Happy to have you in the group!

I think we need another BlackBerry intervention:

It's funny because it is so true. Nobody can resist the wrath of a Blackberry.

I did not think I had it that bad. One day I was in a hurry when I left for work I forgot to pickup my bb and wallet. I found out when I got to work. What did I care about the most? Mot my wallet but my curve.

And to think, it only cost a fraction of your engagement ring...I should've proposed with the Curve instead. *kicks self*

cnn.cn is your friend for the spare trackballs. I've been using keyboard shortcuts so this one is actually still pretty white.

I don't believe there is a such thing as an addiction to the blackberry. I just think the rest of the world is nuts for not joining us.

Can you actually replace one? How would you do that?

How long has it taken for some of you to get to the point where your trackball looks as bad as mine?

they sell spares on cnn.cn for $12 plus shipping. I ordered a couple for when mine goes bad. my trackballs have stayed white for the most part, so I will see with this phone how long it takes to have to replace it. so far, after about 3 weeks, its still the correct color.

So you take the phone apart to replace it? I think I'd rather live with a yellowish/grey/black trackball than risk doing that.

Ever clean it? My friend recommended alcohol rubbing pads. He said it helps, but I don't think it works miracles LOL
