Hi everyone Hopefully this will be a nice, easy question :-) I've noticed that the trackball on my new Bold has a bit of bounce, it sinks maybe one or two mm before clicking. Is this normal? I realise I'm no doubt being paranoid, but I had so many problems with my previous Nokia E71 I just wanted to check. Thanks, Paul

Re: Trackball

On my BlackBerry 8800 trackball also has a little bounce.


I think it does not matter if trackball does work properly.

Re: Trackball

If your trackball starts to malfunction, know that you can easily replace it.  You can buy them for about $5 on eBay and replace it yourself.  Here's a video on youtube showing you exactly how to do it.
