I have great peripheral (sp?) vision thank God. I can see a pretty good range around my bb and I look up frequently. I hate the feeling of OMG I'M AN ***** that comes with walking into things... I know this feeling all to well from just being my clumsy self!
First time poster! I've had my pearl for about two weeks and have walked into a pole and 2 people so far.I just can't leave it alone
Nope, with over 40 years of practice, I have so far managed to walk and read a book at the same time. This has carried over to Curve usage as well, since getting my Curve, I have yet to walk into anyone or anything while using my BB. If foot traffic starts to pickup around me, I just move out of the way or park myself near a wall/pole/trash can or find a seat.
Text message tunnel vision tends to be a problem for some people, and it makes people watching a little more interesting in the malls, <evil grin> as you watch people (groups of them even) walk into signs or doors, trip over strollers and stumble over waist high kids.
Have even seen a few people walk with a friend or gf/wife/bf, they both stop because the one not engrossed in the txting is looking at something, then the texter notices movement and start walking away with someone else, only to be snapped out of their texting fog, by their SO/Friend calling their name.
I think I'm lucky in that I don't get tunnel vision, unless I'm involved in a really intense gaming session. Hours can fly by during those marathon gaming session!
