    okay, i'm looking into the 9930. coming from Storm 2. i have never had a physical keyboard since dumb fones. i think i can master the awesome keyboard you guys speak of, but what about one hand typing when you have something else in your other hand....ie...steering wheel.

    Just checking in with the "flagship" BB users....sigh

    I find the KB fine with one hand. The 9900 is bigger but then the keyboard is, too!

    Just takes practice. You'll get used to it. I learned to type without looking with very minimal mistakes

    you shouldn't type and drive...if you kill yourself it's bad luck, if you kill (or injure) another it's unforgivable...

    I am in exact same position as you; I had dumb phones then I had the BB Storm 1 and then Storm 2. Been using touch screens for three years, and never thought I would change.

    I'm different, however. I liked my Storm 2 - I could type SO, SO quickly on it. Double the speed of my friends who had normal BBs.

    I, however, just upgraded to the Bold 9900 today and I must say - it is a wonderful phone and so far I have no regrets. It will, of course, take a week to get used to typing. But the user experience is phenomenal. I love it!

    still talking about the steering wheel?

    he asked for opinions and all he has gotten is a "dont text and drive" speech

    Using 2 hands i'm typing by far the fastest on the 9900 than any other phone - no contest.

    Single-handed I'd say I was a bit faster on the Torch using the suretype keyboard.

    My first phone was a Treo 700w. I could type on that with zero problems after the initial learning phase.

    I am glad to be back within the physical crowd and with just 2 days in I can see myself getting back to form.

    Ok kind of a fun question. If you can type without looking at your phone what does it matter if 1 hand is off the steering wheel. 1 hand and both eyes on the road is safe. It is the yahoos that put head phones in their ears while driving that are bad. Ok there are a lot of bad drivers that do stupid things.

    EDIT: Of course when I am typing one handed while holding the steering wheel I am dialing a phone number then putting the phone on the dash board for because I go bluetooth in the car.

    Ok i seriously want to knock you out!! It is against the law in most states and in most provinces here in Canada! Don't be a tool, actually I hope you are a tool and text and drive and do something like hit a pole or a tree cause you are not paying attention.

    Apps like Drive.sly or whatever it is are made for this reason!
