purchasing new trackballs

Is there a way to purchase trackballs for a Blackberry Curve 8300?  Mine is most definitely dead.  Do they sell them in the ATT stores?  I am in Mexico but I could have a friend send one to me.  Do they sell them online?
Because I am in Mexico, I cannot take my phone in for service.  Or can I?  Are there ATT centers in Mexico?
Thanks

I am doubting there are ATT stores in Mexico.

 

I know you can purchase from  www.horizonwirelessonline.com. They are trustworthy vendors. Tell them your plight and I am sure they will help you out.

Re: purchasing new trackballs

[ Edited ]

I needed a replacement about six months ago, and after freaking out at the rediculous prices I was finding, I found Cellular Nationwide Network.  Now before I continue, I'll let you know up front - it took TWO DAYS for them to acknowledge my order, and another week and a half for them to get to me, but I was able to get three track balls at $9 each with shipping for less than any other I found without shipping!

 

If you need it tomorrow, this is NOT the place, but if you want to save a LOT of $$$, check them out!

 

Incidentally, I ordered three because I needed one immediately, and my wife has an 8300 - and I figured having two extra ones around would be a good idea.  The one I used is still working fine (it's lasted longer than the original one), and I haven't needed the other two.  I just hope they work on the Bold!

Yep, cnn.cn does have good prices.

 

Horizon also has good people and will go the extra mile.
