Cool Changing colors on the Trackball and LED

Please Login to Remove!

Hey just a quick question, I was wondering if there was something or an option that maybe I am not seeing as to where I can change the color of the trackball or the LED for different things on my 8320?

If you could help me out that would be great. Thanks.

Welcome to the forums.

You could look into an app called BBAlerts to change the LED color dependingon what kind of notification you get.

The only BB model to have mutiple LEDs under the trackball was the 8100. You could take a colored piece of Scotch tape and place it over the LED to give the effect of another color. Also, I've seen some colored trackballs you can order as well.

BerryBuzz from BellShare offers the LED colors.. but not the trackball
8830 -> 8330 -> 9550 -> 9650
Just think about how far BlackBerries have come from then till now... And what else is coming.

theres no app for it, but what i did is took out the track ball, took a piece of clear tape that i had colored with nail polish (let it completely dry before you put it on) put it over the light then place the trackball back in and now i have a colored trackball =]
