    I got the same problem (with the Space/0 key). Tried the rubbing alcohol and it worked for about an hour and the squeak came back. Not a major issue but I really don't like my phone to sound like basketball shoes screeching across the gym floor each time I type a message. If anybody finds a permanent fix, please post.

    I know its been a while when this was posted, because I have the same problem, is there a how to thread to take the keyboard apart.

    Thanks .

    I have a few squeaky keys...but the noise comes and goes!! not too bad

    space_spiff.....you can look up YouTube videos that show you how to take the phone apart!!

    do it at your own risk though, and once you have it apart...I'm not sure where you look!

    Just remember doing this will void your warranty. If you are still under warranty, the best bet is to exchange it.

    Re: Creaky Keyboard

    I believe my phone did that every once in a while, but not that frequently. I didn't really read the whole thread so forgive me if I say something people have mentioned 50 times before. Probably just go to your carrier and tell them the problem and hope they don't make you pay for it because they say its your damage. It is a very common issue though.

    Re: Creaky Keyboard

    I had the problem when I first got my pearl. I've found that the best way to resolve this is with plenty of use. Mine got worse before stopping but now works a treat !!
