    I've had a classic for about a month and just got a passport last night. I'm in the process of loading it up and getting used to how it operates.

    My thumb doesn't reach the right side when holding one handed. It appears there is no way to select, open, or delete email messages in the Hub using just my left hand. Is this the case, or am I missing something?

    No you are not missing something. The Passport is generally not a one handed device.

    Unless you're as big as Shaq. I always use my Passport with both hands.

    If you brace the left side against something (knee, thigh), you can use it one-handed.

    I usually rest my left pinky under the device and my left index finger along the left side with my middle and ring finger supporting the back. I have pretty big hands so I use it one handed frequently.

    Hehe

    Dmateo's one handed use trick does work for me as well, but it sometimes feels dangerous.

    Safer to use 2 hands when possible

    I can use it semi easily with one hand. A little top heavy.

    To browse the net with one hand its perfect,the keyboard scrolling is a great idea and very comfy to use... but typing only with 2 hands for me

    I do not have big hands. Yet I am able to use the passport with one hand. I just support the phone with my pinky. In fact, I just typed all this one handed with relative ease. It just takes practice.

    I always type with two hand regardless of the phone I'm using. On the passport, there's very few activities on the screen that require my hand to reach for the far side. Even in such case, I can simply change hand.

    As a new yorker who's always on the go it's so hard to have both hands free since I'm always carrying either a portfolio or briefcase!!!! Agreed it does feel dangerous. Hopefully when my vaja case arrives I'll feel safer holding it this way!

    I came from a Q10 to the Passport and used to do things one handed all the time. I've now gotten used to cradling the Passport in my right hand and using my left ( I'm a south paw). As for typing, I generally used two hands for that so it was not too much of an adjustment. Bit of a learning curve but cannot imaging going back to the Q10 now.

    I actually went from classic to passport to q10. Passport just wasnt for me. Took away the very things that attracted me to BlackBerry.

    I came from the Classic to the Passport and have no regrets at all. I have small hands for a guy but would take the Passport over the Classic any day of the week!
