Question, I'm sick of cleaning the trackball, anyone know if the Verizon store has replacement trackballs, if not that where can I get a new trackball.
Do you carry the device in your pocket? If so, that is the issue. It isn't the trackball. Carrying it in a pocket subjects it to dirt and lint which block the contacts under the ball.
A new on will not solve the problem for very long.
Carry in a pouch and that should solve the problem.
