At this point with all the news we hear about trackballs going haywire on different BlackBerry handsets, it really makes you wonder why they’re pushing forward with optical trackpads instead. T-Mobile is actually doing a noble thing for those customers who are still sporting select trackball trotting BlackBerry smartphones. Starting February 15, BlackBerry Pearl 8100/8120 and Curve 8320 customers that are having problems with the trackball will be greeted to a trackball replacement at T-Mobile retail stores for free. Obviously you have to be an existing customer that’s still using one of the mentioned handsets, but small things like this really goes a long way – it goes to show their commitment to going above and beyond regular customer service. So if you’ve been living with that stuck trackball, now is the time to step foot into T-Mobile stores – and start living a bit easier with a new trackball.
