    I was typing and thought how do other people do it? Since I only know one other person with a BB I asked this question.
    I use both thumbs a lot of times and am faster that way.

    Sorry if this was posted before. I still haven't seen search option on wap site.

    Double-thumbin', baby! Unless I'm also doing something that requires the use of a hand...

    Getting better and better at it, just having a bit of trouble with the return and delete key so close.:-(

    Both thumbs here too. I'm even getting the hang of sure type. I just have to proofread before I send.

    When I first got my bb a few months ago, I tried several ways of typing. I find the two thumb method works for me.

    One hand for short messages / emails. But, if it's going to be a lengthy one, the it's both hands, well, thumbs...

    both thumbs, but I have fat digits so I use my Stowaway Shasta Bluetooth Keyboard. 98% of the time... even when I'm driving in the car

    I can now drive with my knee and BB with both thumbs. The keyboard on my curve is just too big to type with only one thumb.

    Grew my thumbnails a bit longer so I can access the keys better. I'm getting faster, but that #$#$%!! Alt key gets in the way every time!!

    What part of the thumb does everyone type with? Is it the tip, the nail, or the pad? I've gotten a lot better on my Curve but the Pearl was easier with the larger keys.

    I used the side of my thumb when typing because of my nails.
    But since I recently cut nails and they aren't to long I use my nails for now.

    Definately both thumbs. Bit wary of using just one thumb as this could result in me dropping the phone whilst trying to reach the other side of the keyboard.

    I have usually typed with the tip of my hands even though my nails are short. I just tried to type this response with my nails and I was moving way to slow. Only thing about the tip it starts to hurt after a while. I am sure I will have carpal tunnel lol
