It is normally just a bit of dirt/gunge on the conductive rubber under the keys (or on the contacts beneath), a VERY gentle wash with a bit of water often fixes them. Sometimes the conductive rubber wears out, you can get "paint" to repair them.

Some have metal clicker pads and likewise they just need a quick clean.

Needless to say, you have to open the phone up to gain access.

Don`t knock it, thats aqll i used to use!

They double up as a broadband modem did you know?
My `3` dongle was forever breaking down, so in the end i used one of these for ages, the cameras are good and you can watch movies on them smile

You can also buy a new keypad if needs be, but what DD said is correct happy

Oh and a common fault is the joystick always breaks/sticks!

Make sure it is well dry before you put it together and don't use any linty material on it.
