Thanks for the response everyone. I guess the Lysol wipes destroyed the keyboard. I still find it odd that it is only some of the keys on the second row. I guess I will see if it dries out over the next few days. If that doesn't work, I guess I need to tell my friend it is toast.
I suppose changing the keypad is too cumbersome.

Unfortunately my friend does not have insurance on this phone and I don't think he would have a warranty. We live in Canada and I'm not sure where he bought this phone but it is AT&T branded, so he wouldn't have gotten it here. Rogers is our GSM service provider.
Wow ... I guess he has an expensive paperweight.
Let me know if you guys can think of an economical way to revive this. Is there a software keyboard that can be used so that he can use the trackball to select the letter since it doesn't work. That would be pain to use, but at least it would make it functional.
