I have Been having the same problem with my blackberry. Over the last few weeks my buttons have started playing up the a, w, s, d and alt button. I have been considering getting a new keyboard for my phone. Does anyone know how I would be able to get the old one off?

Same here also guys. Keys went mad and self type, all sorts of lazy problems, mind of its own, then nothing, timesout, backlight goes off and nothing. Can't even get it back on. took it apart to see whats inside, seems like its a simple press board that sends a signal to the main chip. So in otherwords, Made in China, pay a fortune and then in less that 2 years the phone is useless. Just about sums up the state of things today.
Tel me why we put up with this nonsense. If you pay £180 for a phone, you expect some good use from it. Not 18 months of constant problems.
I think we all need to get on to Blackberry's back about this. Anyone up for it?

I've been reading the replies and I'm guessing like digitaldaz stated it must be the lousy press board. I dropped my phone yesterday morning at the parking lot, so it just fell on concrete. and EVERY KEY works except the letter "S" ! Some keys I have to slightly press more than others, but they still function. Not having the letter "s" is very annoying when texting.
