    left index finger and right thumb is the fastest way for me.
    I was starting to think i was the only one who used it this way.

    I type with both thumbs. I cut my nails almost daily so that I can type better. I have found that typing with my thumbs the easiest. I have found that there is a certain rhythm that I must type with to get my messages out quickly and accurately. If I type in rhythm with my thumbs I can really crank out messages fast.

    Generally, I use the balls off my thumbs but sometimes use the tips as well.

    Double thumb tip, or right thumb tip if only one hand available.

    I'm baffled as to how one can type on the balls of their thumbs - that is very awkward to me. I must have the wrong hands lol

    Re: Quaker Steak wings - How is it that the pinky finger avoids the sauce? haha I never thought of that until you mentioned it

    Last time I checked, you do drive a car with feet

    I know what you're saying though. Surely its more comparable to steering a car with one hand and an elbow?

    Generally I would one-thumb, occasionally I'd double it up...but I can easily get away with the one-thumb technique on a Pearl (SureType) If I had a QWERTY I'm pretty sure I'd double thumb (tips) 90% of the time

    I use VLINGO PLUS. It works in every app in the blackberry. My calender entries, e-mail, text messages, notes to myself, you name it vlingo works in it. The more I use it the better and faster it works. I find myself doing almost zerro typinjg on my blackberry. I was very skeptical of the app until I knew someone who used it. They convinced me to try it, I did and I can not tell you how amazed I was that this app can repeat everything that I say with almost zerro errors now. I have had it for under a week and vlingo just keeps getting better with recognizing my speech patterns. The voice command that comes with the 9700 is junjk compared to vlingo. I use the left side key to activate vlingo and bang I'm on my way.

    Another vote for VLingo. No need to type except for the occasional mistranslation, and usually the drop down menu offers the correct word when I hover over the incorrect one (which doesn't happen often anyway).

    I'm a double-thumbed kinda guy too. I normally hold the phone in two hands, a bit like a cats cradle (how embarrassing to admit that!) and use my thumbs, mostly the tips but I've got fat fingers. There is an occasional mistake, but moving the phone around slightly depending on which key is to be pressed.

    I can't use just a single thumb on all keys, as I'm not a long-fingered chap. Definitely not a finger-typer.

    Can anyone type & walk without being a danger to themselves and others?
