I have the Tour as well, and after encountering the same problem, I came across this great solution on the internet that worked for me:

Press down firmly on the trackball, and move it up and down a few times and then left and right a few times. It should clear up the problem.

BlackBerry Tour: How to find your IP address


Like most devices that connect to a network or to the Internet, your BlackBerry Tour has its own IP address. If you need to find your IP address (or if you're just curious) follow the steps below. (The process may vary for other BlackBerry models, but it should be similar.)

A. From the main screen, press the BlackBerry button (the one with seven dots) to go to your Home folder.

B. Find the Options folder (with the wrench icon) and select it.

C. In the list of options, scroll down to Mobile Network and click the trackball.

D. Press the BlackBerry button.

E. Click on Tools on the menu.

F. Click on Ping.

When the Ping test utility opens, you'll see your IP address displayed at the top of the screen, labeled "Device IP." You don't have to use the Ping utility; you can click the back arrow to exit out after noting your IP address.

Alternatively, you can run the Diagnostics Test, which will also display your IP address. To run the Diagnostics Test, follow the steps above, but after step D, substitute the following procedure:

E. Select Diagnostics Test from the menu.

F. Press the BlackBerry button.

G. Select Run.

The Diagnostics Test can take a few minutes to complete, and it will display various settings for your BlackBerry, including the IP address (Device IP). The report generated by the Diagnostics Test will be saved so you can view it later for reference or use it to compare current settings.

How to move applications on a BlackBerry Tour


With its default setup, when you download an application to your BlackBerry Tour, it goes into the Downloads folder. However, this isn't where most users want to keep their applications -- typically they move them to the Applications folder, the Home folder, or a custom folder.

To move an application, highlight its icon with the trackball and press the BlackBerry button (the one with seven dots to the left of the trackball) and select "Move To Folder" from the menu that pops up. A list of all of your folders will appear; select the folder you want to move it to and either press the trackball or the Enter key. The application will disappear from the current folder and it can now be found in the folder you moved it to.

You can also move the application around within that folder, if you want to switch the order of programs. This can be useful for the Home folder if you're using the Zen layout, because the first six programs in the Home folder appear on the main screen. To change the order of applications within a folder, hover over an application you want to move, press the BlackBerry button, and choose "Move." Then go to the position you want to place the folder, and press the trackball.

If you want your downloaded applications to go somewhere else rather than the Downloads folder, you can specify a location by clicking the BlackBerry button when you're in the Home folder and selecting Options. Scroll down to Downloads Folder, press the trackball or Enter, and choose a new folder to save your downloaded applications to. (Be sure to save your change when exiting the Options screen.)

NEED HELP SETTING VOICEMAIL.TRACKBALL IS STUCK, GOES LEFT,RIGHT,& DOWN,NO UP.NEED INSTRUCTION MANUAL.


You can download the user manual (as well as other guides) here:

http://docs.blackberry.com/en/smartphone_users/subcategories/?userType=1&category=BlackBerry+Smartphones&subCategory=BlackBerry+Tour+9600+Series


If the trackball won't go in one direction, try putting one drop of denatured alcohol onto the trackball and then moving it all around, that should fix it. If it doesn't, lift the trackball up slightly -- very gently -- with the blade of a small pocket knife and blow compressed air underneath it.

I have blackberry 9630 tour trackball is not working upside rest sides its fine please help me out.


The trackball will move down and to the sides, just not up? Try blowing some compressed air into the gap around the trackball from all sides.

Sometimes the trackball gets sticky from food particles or dirt from your fingers. Wipe it clean with a dry lint-free cloth and see if that makes a difference.

If it still won't go up, there may be dust or dirt particles underneath the trackball. Get a thin strip of paper and try to work it in around the trackball to loosen any dirt or debris. Then blow the compressed air again to remove any dirt found.

Blackberry trackball wont work


I have the Blackberry Tour.......I work in all kinds of environments....so I get dust, dirt, and debris in my trackball......every 3-4 weeks I cannot move the trackball.......all you gotta do is get AIR DUSTER, the same you use for your computer keyboard etc. and keep it about 3-4 inches away and spray the air at your trackball and move it around......just keep spraying it for about 1-2 seconds at a time and move the ball around after every spray and you are good to go!!!!!
