Default Awesome phone but...

I just got this phone on CL and i love it even more than my droid 2. It seems to run smoother and get better signal. The only thing is that the keyboard is popping out a bit . Is there some way to fix this DIY or do i have to take it somewhere special? It works fine but its a little annoying. Thanks for anyy info

I did this a few months ago (and even posted about it on this forum..).

Anyway, my keyboard had become nearly unusable by the time I replaced it, but it's perfect now.

My advice is to take your time to carefully get all of the old adhesive off.

It's holding up great, but I don't have nearly the same amount of hours using it as I did the previous one.

One thing I forgot to mention: pay close attention to the instructions on positioning the new keyboard. You only get one shot at getting it right as I don't think peeling it back off and trying again will do anything but damage the adhesive.
