Default Trackball question...

Please Login to Remove!

My curve fell into water and as I was letting it dry I took the case off and the trackball thing out.

I then took the actual ball out of the white and metal thing. How do I get the trackball back in?

I tried to do it once, but the ball wasn't high up enough and it didn't scroll correctly.

I have a new trackball coming in, in about a week, but I would like to use my phone before then.

look really close at the phone and the ball. if you cant figure it out people charge good money for such a simple thing. i have seen phone tech just shove it in. then i get to fix the broken plastic and replace the ring with a new one. it only fits in one way, and has to go straight down into it.

If your BB fell in water, you have bigger problems than replacing the tack ball. Does the device work?

Did you let it dry in a bag of rice for 4-5 days?
