Re: TRACK PAD NOT WORKING :(

The trackpads are fairly easy to replace if you're any good at disassembly.

Just google replacement trackpad for BlackBerry 9700 and lots of hits for buying replacements and instructions for installing are available. If you can do it you can fix it for about $10-$15

Re: TRACK PAD NOT WORKING :(

Your options are to fix it (or get it fixed), replace the device, or live with it they way it is.

If you were are corporate user, one of my user had the same issue. Trackpad stopped working and he press down both thumbs soo hard on the screen and cracked it, then went and got a cheap prepaid phone one that makes and receives calls.
