You can use the enter key (right below the "DEL") on your keypad in place of the trackball.

hi this is kamal here to help you in fixya.... if you are unable to see the text has scripting problems - probably due to support software, but check the browser first. To enable scripting: Click "Tools" Click "Internet Options." Click "Security" tab. Click "Custom Level" button. Scroll down to "Script ActiveX.controls marked safe for scripting"- enable Scroll down to "Scripting - Active scripting" - enable Scroll down to "Scripting of Java applets" - enable Click OK Click OK Still not working ? Update software use the links on this page to help update software. After updating check you do not have old versions of Flashplayer, Shockwaveplayer and Java running alongside the latest - this can cause conflicts Start / control panel / programs delete any old versions regards kamal singh

My blackberry world edition's trackball suddenly started selecting things as if I pressed the trackball even though I haven't. If I open email it clicks the links in it as I scroll past and reply pops up...

You might have one of three things wrong with your blackberry 1. something is stuck down there like a peice of plastic causing the button to seem like its being pressed all the time or 2. there could be water damage in there thats if you bring your phone into the bathroom with you while taking showers humidity is like cancer to phones it might not show up right away but it can happen 3. someone might of pushed the trackball so hard that it dented the button in this case i would take it in to get repaired. If it is one of the other two it should be an easy fix you can check for either one of these problems underneath the trackball by removing the ring that is around the trackball you can do this by carefully prying around it off then you should be able to drop the trackball itself right out of the phone aswell as any thing stuck in there or if there is water damage or any water down there I suggest you turn the phone off as soon as possible to prevent any further damage then I would just leave the phone in a nice dry place to get rid of the water then the trackball should work again same thing goes for removing anything that might be stuck down there after that is all done with you should be able to reassemble it remember the ring around the trackball only goes in one way so do force it or you risk breaking it.

Scroll Ball doesn't click

The ball died. If the phone is still under warranty, you need to get it replaced at ATT. The trackball on Blackberrys do go bad from time to time just as they do on Sidekicks and various other phones with a clickball.
