    I have had my instinct since 10/15 and the track ball is already getting dirty and sticking. i have never used a phone with a track ball before so i am looking for tips and advice on how to clean it and keep it clean.

    i usually keep my phone in my pocket when i am on the go and i guess it's the pocket lint in there.

    anyone else having this problem yet?

    Did you spill something on your Hero? Did you set it down in something? I am not having any issues with mine. Its not dirty or sticky. After less then 2 weeks it really shouldnt be unless you did something careless.

    You might try cleaning it with an alcohol wipe.
