    Anyone replace their trackball on a Bold?

    I am actually rather annoyed its not like the Curves or others where you just snap the front o ring up and replace it. Taking the phone apart is kind of making me re think this.

    Anyways, watching this youtube video as to how to replace it. Do you HAVE to un-attach the LCD screen from the board?

    YouTube - How To Replace BlackBerry BOLD 9000 Trackball


    please dont send me a link to the video on cnn.cn. Its even more confusing.

    you don't have to un-attach the LCD if you want to replace the trackball
