Good evening!
Removing (or replacing) the trackball on the Blackberry phone is very easy.
Shut off your blackberry phone (I would take out the battery).
Quickly examine the trackball itself on your phone. Use something with a small tip, like a screwdriver (NOT A KNIFE! Could damage the mechanism), and slide it underneath the silver ring around the ball. Gently lift up, might also want to try lifting both sides to help lift it off.
Once off, set aside the silver ring. You should now see the trackball mechanism, to remove it, simply flip the phone over and it should just fall out (can also tap it a few times which helps). The mechanism is simply held in magnetically.
You should now be able to see where the trackball was. You can now take a cotton swab with a small amount of rubbing alcohol and clean around in that area. If you examine, you will see small rollers around the trackball, you can also clean these. 
This is the best way to clean the trackball. If all else fails you can replace the trackball. You can order one off amazon, they are very cheap, ranging from $2-10.  
To put in the trackball, simply reverse the steps. The trackball device only goes in 2 ways, if it simply doesnt fit, turn it. It requires minimal force to put it back in. To put the silver ring back in, just match up the 3 little clips and gently push it back in.
Put the battery back in and give it a test.
Hope this helps!

I've purchased items from Truesupplier.com before and they provide excellent service.
You'll need to purchase another keyboard/housing and a trackball for your phone.
You'll need a T6/T4 screwdriver. This can be bought from Lowe's/Home Depot.
There are several videos on youtube that show the replacement of your housing.
This is the easiest way to fix your keyboard and trackball.

My trackball works on my blackberry and i recieve calls but it seems like my keyboard is locked i cant pick up calls or select options


Have your keypad checked out, I used to fix alot of blackberries and they suffered from defective keyboards, this seems to be a common problem with them. Replace the keypad under the keyboard, swap out your phone if you have insurance.

Good luck.

Bberry tour got soaked how to retrieve txts


Sounds like you have a broken trackball button membrane. The only way to get it up and running again is to open your blackberry2_bing.gif to physically clean or replace the membrane. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to Blackberry Repair. If you want to do it yourself, here is a Blackberry curve Repair Guide that shows how, the part is available on Ebay.

I can send files via my blackberry pearl 8110 bluetooth, but iam


1. Go to Media.
2. Hit the menu key (left of trackball) and select Explore.
3. Browse to the folder you want to store the file in.
5. Hit Menu key again and select "receive using bluetooth."
6. Send from the other phone.

You'll have to do this for each file individually.

Also make sure that you have paired with the device you are trying to receive from. In my limited experience i noticed that NOTHING transfers unless you are paired.

There is one more setting I would check, go to OPTIONS/SECURITY/GENERAL SETTINGS/make user the the
option for CONTENT PROTECTION is disabled.
