Never remove the ring and clean the trackball unless your phone isn't under a warrenty. Run the app loader on the phone if it doesn't work you'll have to replace the phone through your phone company if you have a warrenty. IF you don't have a warrenty you are free to try and clean it or replace the trackball and ring, they are amazingly cheap. check out amazon.

Cleaning the track ball on blackberry phones. Remove the metal ring then the ball mechanism remember how you removed it because it needs to go in the same way. You can also try removing the battery from phone taking a qtip with alcohol the higher the percentage of alcohol the better. and wiping and rolling the ball around even without removing it from the phone. this usually helps unless the ball is extremely dirty. Below are step by step ins for removing the ball.just follow the link

My track ball scrolls on my blackberry curve but niether the keypad or the track ball works. how can this be soved without buying a new phone?


try cleaning the track ball with a qtip dipped in alcohol or nail polish remover.. It could be that the track ball isn't "reading" correctly due to oil, etc.

My black berry curve; and its ball is not budging; what is wrong with it?


If the ball is not moving at all more than likely it has debris in it. You can use about 10-20psi of air pressure to blow out the track ball.

If the ball moves and it's not working it's either a bad trackball unit. Or the phones has gotten wet usually.

The ball won't scroll down


Have you removed the ball at any time? If it is put back in wrong, it could cause this. If not, the ball assembly itself might be bad. You can find them fairly cheap on eBay.

Screen shakes have to use track ball


Try turning off the device and take off the back cover and battery. make sure the camera button isnt stuck and try pressing it in a few times...it should kinda make a clicking noise.

reasemble the phone and turn it on by holding the red key for about 10 seconds or so and see if it still happens. if it does, call t-mobile at 1800-937-8997 for a replacement.

Trackball reinsert blackberry curve 8310


Usually the clips of the chrome ring break and don't snap back into the frontplate. There are :<a href=http://www.portatronics.com/guide/Smartphones-Repair-Guide/>Blackberry Curve Repair Guides</a>online that show you how to disassemble the Curve, if need be.
