Was the device in a case or was it naked? If it wasn't in a case, was your pocket sweaty?
I could ususally pull out the battery and the problem would resolve itself, but the other nite my BB started enterin the "tg" keys on its own, then over nite the buttons locked up on me and its been that way for a little over a day now. I'm currently trying the rice bowl technique in case i have water damage cause i do take my phone in the bathroom with me sometimes when i take a show, maybe the steam did somethin. Who knows, all I know is I don't wanna have to get another phone :/
Steam IS moisture. Sweat is moisture. Both of these can definitely cause damage to the keypad contacts.
