RIM’s classic trackball-based BlackBerries have always suffered from some kind of trackball vulnerability – no matter how you slice and dice it, the trackball eventually dies.

TmoNews.com reports that T-Mobile (USA; I guess) is taking proactive measures:

Beginning February 15th, BlackBerry Pearl 8100/8120 and BlackBerry Curve 8320 customers that are experiencing issues with the trackball, will have the option to visit a T-Mobile Retail Store and have their trackball replaced for FREE (No, you arenít seeing things, at least this time around). The handset must be an 8100/8120 or 8320 purchased from T-Mobile.

As of now, none of this has been confirmed. Stay tuned for further info as we get it!
