Question about LG RUMOR Cellular Phone

Open Question

I have an LG Rumor, and all of a sudden the bottom half of the phone doesn't work. I first noticed that the volume and camera shortcut buttons weren?t doing anything, then that the buttons on the slide out keyboard were being weird. If I type "Hello my name is steve" into a message or note, all that comes out is "Hmis st" and all the letters appear on the screen after a significant delay. I tried turning the phone on and off a few times, recharging it, taking out the battery and putting it back in... Some other people had the same problems here, and the only suggestion that was made to them was to clean between the keys with an old toothbrush, which I tried and which didn't work. The phone has worked flawlessly for over a year until now. Does anyone have any other ideas for fixing the problem?

How do I turn of the Rumor Touch

The left side has a volume rocker and camera button, while the right houses the power/lock key. If you hold the power/lock key it should turn off your phone.
