Default Trackball Help?

Please Login to Remove!

So I purchased the VZW BB 8830 just a week or two ago and I love it, and have gotten some great help from you all already.My question now has to do with the trackball...I set its sound function off, but ever since the other day it seems to stick and get clicky, and then when I blow on it, it returns to its normal trackball functioning self for a while, and then starts sticking again. Is this just the device breaking in, is there a way to fix it, or is my device faulty?

Do you carry it in your pocket.

Do a search for cleaning the trackball. There are many threads on what to do. Here is one:
