    Most times I find myself hitting the keys with my fingernails rather than the actual thumbs. Sometimes though my fingernail tends to slip off the key.

    I have tried not using my fingernails and most of the time I can get away with hardly any typos.

    Just curious, how does everyone else do it?

    use the pad on my thumbs, the BB keys would be pretty hard to use all the time with your nails, even on a bold

    i use two thumbs. I've heard our iphone friends use one thumb and the fore finger.

    I've gotten pretty good and "rolling" my thumbs around to type words with letters close together. Almost like finding a home row.

    I use both the thumbs' fingernail/tip. I sometimes think I might rub off the color of the keys but haven't so far. I can go pretty fast when I don't think about it though

    You can try cutting your fingernails and using the end of your thumbs

    Thumbs.. sometimes my fingernails but I don't worry about that too much cause they're really short so they won't do any damage; well atleast I hope not haha

    Can you scratch paint off the keys on a 8900? I've wondered this myself! Although I only type with my thumbs!

    Both for me.

    I must admit, I really miss the autocorrector feature I had on my iPhone. I even miss that when using a PC/Mac

    My fingers are pretty thin actually. I just got into the habit of "pecking" the keys with my thumbnails.

    However I see now that using my thumbs work just fine.
