    Lightbulb My Paper Strip Method for Cleaning BlackBerry Tour 9630 Trackball, Make Good as New!

    I just completed a quick little tutorial demonstrating my paper strip method for cleaning the trackball of the BlackBerry Tour 9630. As many of you know, cleaning the trackball on the Tour can be difficult since you can't remove it from the device like on previous BlackBerrys. Well, I've come up with a pretty successful solution that can get your trackball working good as new again.

    You can check out some testimonies on the CrackBerry.com forums if you like.

    Please consider leaving a comment below or on YouTube if this method helped you.

    Thanks!

    That is a pretty creative way to clean the trackball - and looks like it works at that, Congratz! I wonder if glossed paper (Like picture paper but thinner) would be better since its stronger, maybe too thick though.

    I'm kind of surprised more people haven't tried and commented back on this yet.

    That could possibly work. Let us know for sure!

    I just posted it on this forum, but if you visit the link in the original post to CrackBerry.com, quite a few have commented.
