Default Replace keys on 9930 keyboard

Please Login to Remove!

Hopefully some one here knows about replacing keys on 9930 . . .
I've lost the letter `H' on my keyboard;

Going to Verizon (my provider) I'm told they do not fix anything, so I can pay the deductible ($50) and wait a few days for a new/repaired phone, or take it to a cell phone repair place here in Atlanta and have the whole keyboard replaced for $45.
So:
Is it not possible to replace an individual key?

If not, then assuming the above items are true... I guess getting a new phone would be the route to take eh?

Also is there a built in screen keyboard? Or maybe a third party screen keyboard?

There is no way to replace a single keyboard, buy a new one on ebay and there is a video on you tube how to change it. You will need a couple of torx screwdrivers and a plastic removal tool. I have done it, 20 minutes job

Unless it's abuse, that's covered under warranty.
