Default Know where i could an Atomic Trackball for my Curve?

Please Login to Remove!

I was wondering if anybody knows where i can purchase an Atomic Trackball that is featured on the Bold and the 8900 curve. It would complete that blackout look im going for, i have my phone with a black housing, black keypad and black middle key pad with "send" and "end" buttons. It would be nice to have the Black trackball to cap it off

the trackball is made of plastic/delrin so you could just dye it any color you like with Rit dye (found @ RiteAid, Saveon, Wallmart)

Actually the Bold has a traditional trackball that lights. The 8900 has the atomic ball and the ring around it lights up since the ball does not. You BB might be pretty dark in low lighting without either.

i think ill manage, its not too hard to find that darn trackball in the night anyways.

So dieing it doesnt sound like a bad idea..does it work pretty good? i think i might just try that. Ill let you know if it turned out the way i want.

Question: How did you get the black middle keypad, send and end buttons? Does it look like the keypad on the 8330?

I, too, am going for the same look. I found several black trackballs on e-bay (though no the Atomic that you mention). May I ask how you attached your lens to the faceplate - glue or tape? I am watching an 'all included' kit and the faceplate is already treated with glue. Not sure if I should avoid that.

Thanks for your input.
