Maintaining your trackball
A few of my fellow CrackBerry users suggested replacing the trackball, canned air & one suggested a phone cleaning spray.
I can say I didn't want to operate on my Bold, so tried the canned air, which after a number of goes, did succeed in restoring full functionality to my Bold's trackball.
But maintaining/servicing the trackball... this is where the phone cleaning spray has come into its own. For approximately $20AUD I purchased the spray, which came complete with a polishing cloth.
Do your own research first, but I find spraying/misting the front of my Bold, and then immediately polishing the spray off with the cloth, at least once a week, keeps not only the face of my BlackBerry really clean & shiny, but I am certain, ensures the trackball continues to perform its required functions.
Maintenance which doesn't take much time, nor cost a lot.
Give it a try, especially if your trackball is unresponsive.
