    hey, I purchased my blackberry 8100 off of ebay about a month ago and i LOVE IT! It was originally an AT&T phone that was unlocked, but I uploaded the t-mobile OS onto it (as i have t-mobile, and wanted to enjoy things like MMS )

    Now, IDK, if it is a problem with the OS, but probably a hardware problem, but I have a very tricky "2" button. Sometimes it works, sometimes I gotta mash the crap out of it to make it work. Is there a way to disassemble the blackberry to take a look at it and possibly clean it? Or would it possibly be better to turn around and sell this one and just get another before it gets worse?

    Thanks for your help!

    I had the same problem too. I blew compressed air and the keys were like new.

    would canned air work? or is that what you are talking about?

    Yes . . . Hold the can 100% UPRIGHT, do not tip/tilt it so that any fluid in the can gets in the keys.
