    How common is this condition?

    Has any of you actually suffered from the condition on your thumbs?

    I have been using the physical keyboard phones for the past two years and mine seem to be fine so far.

    4 years and perfect. Sometimes after VERY long days they hurt. Especially on my 9780 back in 2011, I remember they would go numb.. but they have significantly improved their physical keyboards over the years.

    Stupid question maybe, but don't people on touchscreens type with their thumbs also?

    Yea, but their thumb muscles are atrophied from tap tap tapping on glass.

    This is a fairly common condition (on both pkb's and vkb's) and is just another variation on repetitive strain injuries such as tennis elbow, golfer's elbow etc. Microfibre tears occur in the fine muscle attached to connective tissue within the thumb joint causing inflammation. Never had the problem myself, but then again I don't use my device that much.

    I switched to a Torch from a Bold years ago since I was having issues. I had a Z10 since it came out but recently bought a Passport. So far so good, but I do feel it more than the Z10.
