    I'm planning on picking up a new 8900 but I've been told that after typing a while, your thumbs start hurting? Any truth to this?

    Can anyone compare typing on the 8900 to the Bold in terms of comfort and accuracy?

    No, my thumbs don't hurt when I type after a while.

    Not sure who told you that but I have used all kinds of BB's over the years and sent a ton of texts/emails and my thumbs never hurt. The Bold keypad might be a bit bigger and make it a little easier but I love the 8900.

    When i was looking at the 8900 v the Bold, i opted against the 8900 as i figured it would be frustrating with big fingers on the smaller keypad, to the point i would have to type with my nails - that might hurt, but realistically the 8900 is fine. You need not worry.

    not a problem at all, the typing on the bold is definitely a little easier because of their size, but my 8900 is perfect, can still type really fast and i dont have tiny fingers....the keyboard is great, id say go to the store and start typing on both of them and see what you think...no soreness at all on the 8900 though

    typing on the 8900 can have a little pressure on the thumbs becaus of the rounded keys compared to the bolds' KB.

    but as most people here said, its fine.

    No problems here. It's funny because I see people complaining about the 8900 keyboard and how they like the Bold. I'm just the opposite. After playing around with the Bold and Tour, I prefer the 8900.

    I have not tried the Tour keyboard yet but I'm with you on preferring the 8900 keyboard to the Bold keyboard.

    No problems here either. I prefer the keys a little more spaced out, unlike the bold and others where all the keys are adjacent to each other.

    I hav e th e bighest, fatesst fingerts iim the world amd I have no probs. Seriously, I thought that I would have problems with the 8900's small keyboard but after a few weeks of use, I can type just fine with my giant sausage fingers. You should have no troubles at all.

    My thumbs don't hurt either. I have nails and it's a little bit challenging when typing in #'s but not a biggie - you get used to it. It's pretty comfortable.

    The 8900 has a great keyboard and actually takes less pressure on the keys than my 8310. Having said that the Bold has a great keyboard and is easier to type on...for me at least

    No typing problems here. I've sent a number of emails this morning and it hasn't been uncomfortable at all.

    I do find it a pain sometimes. Fat fingers aren't a problem but my thumbs are quite long so if they are too bent when typing they do ache after a bit. Had the same problem on my PSP and older phnes too though

    Not an issue for me. I have I went from the 8820 to the 8900 without a problem. And I have big hands. So i don't know where that information could have came from, but maybe they just have arthritis or something.
