Someone should create a free typing program for Blackberry to help people type faster.
But I guess there is a way to test how fast you type.
Average about 4-5 characters per word try typing something legit and see how much you can get done, don't forget to time yourself for one minute. Then count up your total characters and divide by 4(or 5) that should be your WPM on a blackberry. Haha!
Also as a side note each page of a text message is 160 characters, some useful information in case you get to two pages .
What would be a legit phrase to practice typing on though?

I would consider my typing pretty fast.... texting on my curve is a whole lot easier than on my storm (storm cant keep up) the blue light dissapears and Im still typing and it skips some letters! It would be nice if they had a typing test for the blackberry. I know there is one for the iPhone, which I use on my iPod Touch but doesnt seem to work on the blackberry. My last test result was 37 wpm,without errors, on the iPods keyboard, which is not bad, lol....
"You perfectly typed 12.6 words in 20.331 seconds, a speed of about 37 wpm! Great Job!"
