Default Keypad cleaning

Does anyone know a good way of cleaning the keypad on a BB as the keys on mine are sticking and making clicky noises (7230 by the way)

you could try using an air can to get the dust out, I would not recommend any water or solutions for that matter. Since they could seep through and get on the boards. you could try something called blue shower II and maybe spray it on a cotton swap and clean off the keys, the solution is by a company called techspray.

Remove the 4 black and two metal screws. You can do this with a small flat screw driver but don't try too hard. Then press using the blade on the top edge of the phone which will release the case. Then just open it like a clam and it will pop. Then stick the blade between the phone and the blue plastic on the earpiece side and lift up. Then do it on the other side. The "phone" will come out of the case and you can then do all the cleaning you want.
