Some querty keys not working :(

Hopefully someone can help me... Every now and then the Q and A keys and the P and Backspace keys stop working. I can be in the middle of writing a text or email etc and those 4 keys just dont work.. I press them but nothing happens on screen. It seems that they work for a short while, then just stop. So it cant be a setting problem, surely it must be a fault with the handset??

Re: Some querty keys not working :(

It sounds like the device has gotten moisture in it. This doesn't have to be from immersing it in water. It can happen from high humidity. I would contact your carrier for handset replacement/exchange. If the moisture indicator under the battery is red they probably won't exchange it. If it's still white you are probably OK.
