Do you have any of the Nextel warranty/insurance plans? They may be able to clean it out for you at a service center. If you don't have any plans then they may still be able to do it for a charge. I would recommend looking up your closest service center and give them a call. Worst case they say no and you are no worse off.

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.

unfortunately nextel's nsp isnt covered for BBs, in order to repair anything on your BB you would have to directly go through RIM.
