    Watching Sal's video on the 9800 I was struck by the length of his thumb nails - then I looked at mine - they too are getting long.

    Why? - to make the bold keyboard easier - the longer they are the better the keyboard gets.

    What are yours like?

    I just spent 2 minutes looking at my thumbnail pics thinking 'what is this guy talking about?'... then I re-read your post

    Mine nails are pretty much normal length... and my thumbnail pics are still small and square

    Same here, short and clean. So everyone with the exception of Fatboy and I, get out your clippers and trim them suckers, right now!

    Can't use my thumbs much as they are too fat, lol! Nails it is, but no that long really....comes with a price as some paint is chipped on certain keys...

    I can't type at all when my fingernails get to long. I don't keep them super short, but a nice shorter length. They just get in the way if they are too long. I like to feel my thumb press the key.

    Haha. This is quite the interesting post!
    My thumbnails (like all of my fingernails) are quite short. I bite them. :s

    Mine are short as well, I'm a guy so no need to keep them long and I use my thumbs to type rather than the nail.

    Mine are very short. I'm a biter still. I'm a girl too so it's kind of embarrassing.

    I use my thumbs to type though, not my nails. Isn't it better that way? I know that when I had a SK, many people complained of keyboard uses that occurred when they typed with their nails.

    If you are a guy and your thumb nails are longer enough to use on your BB keyboard . . . well there is something wrong!

    Even if you are a girl, you will ruin your keyboard in no time if you are using your nails to push the keys. Longer nails are for people who do not work!

    Shorter, trim and clean is good

    my manicurist give me "blackberry thumbs" which are basically super short and squared. I match my themes/wallpapers to whatever color polish I'm wearing.

    I could type when my nails were long, but it wasn't as easy compared to when my nails were short.

    I tend to keep my thumb nails short short, to type with my thumbs, not my nails. The other nails on my hands are kept just at or a little past the tip of my finger.
