How did you break the trackball/button. It is possible that you can just replace thw trackball and it will solve your issue. Also you can contact your carrier, and see if its covered as a replacement.
With the wireless off you cannot really do much of anything. If you cannot get to the manage connections/wireless on/off app I am fairly certain you are dead in the water. Try to back your device up or move the info to a spare/new device.
don't know how it broke. went to pick it up and the trackball would scroll irrationaly, and the back button would go back and trigger the letter U at the same time.
so i popped out to have a look at the trackball and contacts and it never worked again since.
ive dissassembled the device to look for water, and theres nothing. so it just looks like hardware failure.
the contact under the trackball, also still clicks so i assume its not stuck either.
the trackball is still doing some funny things as the screen will light up randomly, it scrolls between the application and profile icons,in zen.
i have it showing the icons at the moment, just in case it randomly scrolls to wireless manager.
RIM have to implement some kind of up down left right arrangement on the keyboard for trackball failures i think.
i dont really have an avenue for exchange as i have a att 8820.
gives me a very good reason to get the bold now.
