Keypad lights up on boot up, but then stops working

Hey guys, this is my first post and my real first problem with my blackberry curve, any help is greatly appreciated!


So my phone is in the off state, I turn it on and all is going well, keypad and screen light up, good to go!  BUT then for some odd reason once the phone is fully booted and I am greeted by my girlfriend, the keypad buggers out and that's the last I see from it.  Until I restart and yada yada yada you get the drift. 


So I did my basic troubleshooting, looking through the options - nothing there.  It does in fact light up, so does this tell me that it is a software issue?  I am using the latest OS and it was working when I first bought the phone.  I am stumped!  If anyone can help me that would be awesome!
