Oh no I had the same issue!!! no, they do not cover water damage. best bet is to do what i did and send your blackberry for repair. i used blackberryplace.com from a referral. pretty good repair service (price was reasonable and fixed it quickly).

The roller ball on any Blackberry phone is easily fixed. The phone companies like to use the "water damage" excuse as it gets them out of any warranty repairs.

Replacement trackballs can be found online, particularly on eBay. Replacing it is extremely simple. All you have to do is gently pry out the ring around the trackball and pull out the old one with a pair of tweezers. Pay attention to the alingment of the ring and of the trackball as you remove them. The ring usually has three clips that hold it into place. Installation is the exact reverse of removal.

Good luck!

Please specify what the phone is doing (or not doing) right. But to let you know, Most of the time, the problems with blackberries can be repair as it is a very strong phone. Unless it has gone completly under water and has died, there is a good chance you can fix the phone, specially if only the trackball has issues. Please contact me if you are in US and like to send it in for me to look at. cellularcpr@aol.com

Track ball


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.

How do I change the SIM card in my BB Pearl 8130


Take SIM card out of old phone and put it into the new phone, however first of all you need to backup your old device.

Download the Desktop Manager and connect via USB cable and backup old handset, insert usb into new phone and restore to new phone thus moving all data from old to new.

Track ball will not perform the select function


Try removing the silver cover around the scroll ball, and remove the ball. There should be a little white square underneath it. If there is no white square, but a red square, then it could be water damage. I had the same issue with mine. If it's a white square, you may want to try contacting you provider again and explain you have checked for damage.
