    my phone was doing the same thing.. the ball worked fine while out of camera mode but as soon as i scrolled to zoom.. the camera didn't zoom.. i took my battery out while my camera was on and waited about a minute.. then i put the battery back in my phone and saw a white screen with a little hourglass.. and it was on this screen forever.. then my normal screen came back and the zoom works fine now.. thanks so much!! this was extremely helpful seeing as i couldn't find my at&t book to the phone.. probly wouldn't have helped anyway.. thanks again!

I was informed that if you take your battery out while it was on then it will work when you put in back in after a few minutes. I Just tried it like 2 min. ago and they were right.

Reflash your blackberry phone, it should be works and will make your blackberry camera curve 8300 unlocked. If that solution not working, bring your phone to nearest mobile phone repair shop and asking them to unlock blackberry using cable unlock. It's not only unlock your camera but also unlock your network if successful.

Ball on blackberry wont navigate up or down


Hi. BlackBerry smartphone trackball fails to roll in a particular direction because, debris is lodged in the trackball.
The trackball user interface found on certain BlackBerry smartphones is similar to the trackball used in a mouse in a desktop computer.
Using for certain period debris comes in contact with the trackball and affects the usability of the BlackBerry smartphone, rapidly roll the trackball up, down, left, or right to potentially correct the problem.
If rapidly rolling the trackball does not correct the problem, please contact your wireless service provider for support options.
I hope this information will be helpfull.

Scroll ball does not (work/zoom in & out)while in camera mode


It may be a software issue that can be resolved by reinstalling the device operating system.

As long as you are at it, what operating system is on your bb? Click Options, about to check. Go to the blackberry website and check if there are updates to the operating system on your device. It might be worth updating your operating system. RIM addresses bugs with the new updates and they are free.

Blackberry rolling ball issues


Is the ball registering left right up and down and just not selecting? Sometimes the ball gets dirty. You can clean them most of the time. If its the actual select button, it sounds like it needs replacing. This repair runs 65.00 plus shipping. The actual button is a solder-on button so it requires more attention.

Trackball on Blackberry Curve not working properly


I found that removing the track ball and cleaning the contact and track ball with a cotton swab moistened with a small amount of isopropyl alcohol, it worked a 100 percent better when I returned the ball to the handset. DO NOT SATURATE THE BALL OR THE HANDSET WITH THE ALCOHOL!! ONLY USE A VERY SMALL AMOUNT!!!!
