Get a Torx t6 screwdriver from Fry's or similar store and remove the screws from the back (4 black and 2 silver) (remove your antenna!) then using a flat screw driver, gently press in the seam next to the DC button on the top. Then open the case like a clam shell. Gently spread the sides apart and the core of the phone will come out. The keyboard is a sheet of molded plastic and can be cleaned in soap and water. After drying, reassemble the phone.
I've literally taken about 100 BB's apart and have never had any warranty issues. As long as you use the right tools, they won't be able to tell they've been taken apart.
The only problem is ATT/Cingular phones. They put stickers over the screw hole on the back.
