    Take the battery out while the bb is on. Leave it out 2 mins or so. Put it back and see if that helps. Have you spilled something in the keyboard?

    Taking the battery out is the only way I can unlock the keyboard. Yeah, I just got out of the pool when I checked messages, but it was two days ago. dang

    If you bought it used, you got taken unfortunatly. If it's yours and still within the 1 Year warranty, get it replaced by the carrier.

    Sounds like you got it wet from the pool. Should have dried your hands beore you handled it.

    Thanks for this post, man. You saved my ***. Thought I would have to bring it in for repairs on the company's dime.
