Default Scroll wheel

Hi, anybody know where I can buy a new scroll wheel for my 7130g, the click is OK but it tends to stick and then jump a couple of lines/icons when scrolling. I've taken it apart and cleaned it with no effect. It's now my spare phone so I don't want to send it away for repair and spend lots of money on it.

It may be cheaper to get a more modern device.

Check out Horizon Wireless

I've got an 8800 as my main phone now, I was going to hand this down to one of the kids for them to learn about Blackberry's on, but I don't like passing on stuff thats not 100%.

These guys want $80 for parts and labor! I have yet to find the parts for a home repair. Sounds like it's time to bin the old 7130g or sell it "as is".

I think I'll put it back in the drawer and save it for emergencies.
