Question alt key popped off -- I have it. How do I put it back on?

Please Login to Remove!

I popped off the alt key to my almost 2 year old BB Pearl 8130. I just need to last until the 9130 comes out.

It happened using the original case that I pulled out of the box after misplacing my Fortte case for a few days.

I've tried to push down on it -- hard. All that happens is that it skitters away -- usually under my desk. Black key on a blue carpet in the dark....

I'm going to lose it this way.

What am I doing wrong? Do I really need to replace the whole keyboard just for one key??? I hope there is a trick that I just am not seeing on Google....

As an aside -- I do have the right torx screwdriver and a pry tool.

Any help would be appreciated.

BlackBerry - Cellular Nationwide Network - Cellular Accessories - 3G, Sony, Panasonic, LG,

Check here for your phone model, most keyboards look inexpensive. Hope this helps

(Although I'm not sure where you would go specifically to have some replace this for you)
