Good evening!
Trackballs are VERY easy to replace! You can take it to your cell phone provider but there is a good chance they will claim the phone is broken.
I would recommend searching on Amazon.com, Ebay, or just googling Blackberry Trackball replacement. They are inexpensive, range from $2 to $10 depending where you look and the quality of the trackball.
I personally have replaced my Blackberry's trackball with a new one off of Amazon. It is very easy to replace. You just need to be careful with handling the trackball due to they are very fragile.
Here is a bunch of replacements you can look into on Amazon:

Youtube even has a few videos on replacing the trackball.
Glad to help you out and good luck with your Blackberry!

My black berry baal stucking and not working...can suggest the sollution


I remembered an article some months ago which mentioned the coloring the of the Pearl's trackball by coloring the LED beneath the trackball. Finally I realized that removing the pearl's cover would the best way to get access to its sensor and clean it. By the way, this should work for all BlackBerry devices that carry a trackball around like BlackBerry Pearl, Curve, 8800, 8820 and 8830.
The silver ring which covers the trackball can easily be removed if you use a small screwdriver to lift it at the outer side of the ring. Be careful here! Like you should be during the whole process as all parts have very small plastic nipple which can break very easy. When the silver plastic ring is removed you will see the inner trackball component which can be removed completely. Before doing this you should carefully remove the silver metal ring that holds the trackball component in its position. The trackball component itself can also be carved. For every direction the ball can roll to you'll find a sensor wheel. Those wheels are mostly carrying some gunk you should clean them from. Once this is done put everything back together to the place the pieces came from and secure the trackball with the silver plastic ring you removed in the first step. Your BlackBerry's trackball should be back working now.

Blackberry bold trackball goes left, right and down but not up how do I fix this?


This is a common problem on Blackberrys with trackballs. When the trackball goes bad you lose one direction first. Inovagent can replace your Blackberry trackball or you can find another local place to have it done.

The ball wont roll on my blackberry. Help!


The trackball is easily removed for cleaning by just pulling the trim ring around the trackball off with your fingernail. Remove the trackball and clean with alcohol. Reverse the process to clean.

Hi. BlackBerry smartphone trackball fails to roll in a particular direction because, debris is lodged in the trackball.

Blackberry 8830 wont track down - trackball stuck


This is usually caused by the trackball getting dirty.

Use a q-tip dipped in IPA and clean it. Roll the trackball around and swab the q-tip around to clean.

If cleaning fails then you will need to replace the Blackberry trackball.

Check the following link on instructions on how to do that.
