Noob here....just traded in my 5 yr old flip phone for an 8830 Curve.
My only concern so far are the small keys. My finger tip size is pretty average if not a litle smaller than average for a male, but I find I cannot dial a call with my thumb, without hitting adjacent number keys. Even using two hands one hand to hold the phone and the other to peck numerals, I frequently mis-key. I can't be the only one out there having this problem.
How do all of you get around this? Is it something you adapt to with time and experience? Do you just use the voice commands to dial numbers that are not in your phone book? I have not tried texting yet cuz I just got it and my experience with numeric dialing really bummed me out.
This product could not be so wildly popular if everyone who had one felt like I do now. HELP !!
Thanks for the replies...it's good to know that I'll overcome this concern with time and practice. I love the features of the phone but was starting to think I might have to trade it in for something else before my 30 days were up.
Nooo dont trade that phone back in. Its the best device you are ever going to use. Over time, you will adjust to the tiny buttons. I had the same problem at first but now have adjusted as I use the corner tips of my thumbs now lol and it works perfectly! Blackberry is gettin really popular these days man. Stay with the best!
BlackBerry..........Whos your new little buddy? :P
My husband has very large hands with wide fingers and it took his a little practice but he eventually got it, I on the other hand have very tiny hands with very long nails, now texting with nails on a slick keypad is a challenge! hang in there you will love your BB just like the rest of us addicts!
