BB Bold trackwheel unresponsive
My trackwheels' functions have ceased working one by one.

First the balls' backlight stopped working (a problem I easily lived with).

Then it stopped responding when you clicked it in to select/enter things (not the click noise but the actual clicking function). The ball still tracked and I simply had to hit the enter key to select things (a pain to get used to but it worked).

But now the trackwheel has stopped tracking too, rendering the phone nearly useless.

The phone has been terrible in several other regards too but thats for another post. I'm sad to say that I plan on ditching RIM as soon as I'm eligible for an upgrade. :x

The phone is out of warranty and I have already attempted to clean the trackball by following the videos on youtube.

Since I'm stuck with this lame phone for another couple months and I'm wondering if there is a way to 'tab' over to other applications so that I can access my contact list, texts, apps, etc...

Thanks for reading and any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Blackberry Bold 9000 has a ball. I didn't realize the new Bold doesn't otherwise I would have clarified.
