Change the colour of your ball


Come on - it was a once in a lifetime opportunity. Quickly moving on, we’re always trying to find new ways to customize our devices to make us even nerdier cooler than the rest of society. One of our favourite Forums members San Francisco has put together a great tutorial of how to change the colour of your Pearl’s trackball, all with the help of some prying fingers and the Sharpie of your choice. Check out the in-depth step-by-step instructions for all the details, now I just need to nab Doug’s away from him and put together a video for you folks.

    That’s absolutely ridiculous! You can change the color of your track ball by downloading Color Ball to your blackberry! This will ruin your phone!

    The people who posted under me are the stupidest people in the world.the shapie does not wreck you phone unless your colour allover the phone. And the downloading codes thing does not work becuase blackberrys only have white LED’s under the trackball. The onlt blackberry with multi-colour LED lights is the peral 8130.
