Keypad won't work properly on 'A'

I need help about my keyboard. i'm using a curve 8520 on 0S5.

 

My letter 'A' in the keyboard suddenly won't work properly.. Just a soft touch and it would appear automatically... in Uppercase. Because of this, i am having a hard time when typing. i copy paste the lower case 'a' so typing would be easy.

 

Also, since the 'lock' is also in that key, my phone would always lock automatically and with that... my phone seems to go 'off' and i would have to longpress any key so it would come alive again.

 

i tried the application clean-up thing in the desktop manager as @BlackberryHelp tweeted me when i asked them about this but still there are no changes.. i also tried putting a tissue in the back of the metal plate thing. i am so worried coz i just got this phone 3 months ago. Please help me about this! Thank you so much.

Re: Keypad won't work properly on 'A'

Me and my fiancé both have Curve 8520's and we've both got the same problem!  I think it is a production fault.  Maybe we should try to get more people with the same problem to write to BlackBerry.  @ famousclout, could you please let me know if you get assistance from someone?  My BBM pin is 224343D1. Thanks

Re: Keypad won't work properly on 'A'

I also had this problem but when I pressed it hard it started working again but now I have the same problem with the back space and the 'r' won't work at all! Instead, when I type 'r' a 'y' comes up! Anyone know what to do? I can't type my password in as I need an 'r' Thanks
