Blow it out with some compressed air, first thing I would do.

Often a non-working key is a symptom of moisture or liquid damage.

Yes, even on key can come from a moisture issue.

If you carry your BB in your pocket, it is likely dust or lint under the key... try that first.

use the compressed air first. then test it. you *could* take the device apart and clean it that way

I don't know that it IS lint or dust. Digging out something you don't even know is there... no I would not.

Some nice forced canned air would do the trick IF that is what it is.

Brand new from the carrier (Tmobile), with this issue?

Take it back today and exchange it for a new one, that would be their issue, not yours.

And don't put in your pocket, get a holster.
