Default Trackball lag

Please Login to Remove!

I am not seeing many posts on this so perhaps it is not a widespread issue but I thought I would report in any case.
My 8900 is my first BB and while I was impressed with the hw I found the trackball response wanting. There seemed to real variability in responsiveness. I tried hard resets, different responsiveness settings, various fw releases and nothing helped (sometimes it was fine others the lag was maddening).
TMO said there was no way to clean it without voiding warranty and they finally just sent me a replacement. The difference is night and day. My 8900 was "working" before in that I could use all the functions and even the trackball but having a fully responsive trackball makes this a real pleasure.

Again, I suspect if this were a larger issue I would see more buzz but if your trackball is not doing it for you, getting a replacement made all the difference for me (and especially if, like me, you are new to the BB platform and was not sure what to expect).
