    I think I managed to splash Vodka + Redbull on my BlackBerry keypad when I was out the other night - some of the keys have a sticky feeling when I press them as a consequence.

    Can people recommend the best way to sort this out?

    Cheers?

    And I thought my phone came off the worst that night.

    You'll probs have to take it into the shop.

    BlackBerrys have internet access right... and you have sticky keys hmmmmmm. haha

    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

    This is what I found for you anyway.

    Something less obtrusive would be a can of air, that will remove all the dust and stuff but I guess its more sticky cause of liquid so you really need to get in there.

    I did the same with my old phone. I used a damp sponge (not wet) with a tiny bit of gin on it, and it worked really well. (I had sick/dirt/alcohol on mine, and mud in the gaps in the keys. Don't ask) Should work well for you.
    And yeah, make sure you take the front casing off, if you can, it'll clean better.

    Take the front casing (contains no electronics) off and leave it to soak in soap and water, then dry it well and put it back on.

    WD-40. Not joking, it's perfect. Works for that sticky crap that's left behind on DVD cases and stuff too.

    Cotton bud and alcohol, or maybe one of those hand sanitizer gels that contain alcohol would be the best way.
