My ball is stuck...on my Blackberry of course
Thought that the title might get your attention.
Seriously though, the little ball that is essentially the DIO el FUNCTIONALITY of my blackberry pearl is messed up. It scrolls up and to the sides just fine but its having trouble scrolling down, sometimes it sticks completely and sometimes I just have to apply a little more vigor to get it to roll. Anyone else have this problem before and if so what fixed it? Do I just need to take it into ATT?

Take it into the store.
Ask them to adjust your ball.
Maybe you get someone with a sense of humor.

That stupid little trackball is reason #43 that I hate my ****ing Blackberry and can't wait to get rid of it on October 4 when I'm up for a new-every-two.
Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

I mean its nice when it works, but I'm agreement with being over the blackberry. I think I might be up for a deivce upgrade so I might just do it now if they can't fix it.

Get a sheet of paper and flip the phone over and rub the ball on the paper. That might work.
If not, head to the nearest store and scream out the same thing you wrote on the title to grab their attention.

That made it a little better than it was, good suggestion.

Grab one of those air can dusters for computers and blow the ball.
It might work. That's how I fix the ball on my Macs.
