    I have found that filling up the AutoText feature with custom words helps with my speed and accuracy.

    I can't type as fast as I can on my computer. Its easier to type on my iTouch than it is on my bold with a case. But I'd say anywhere around 45-50 wpm.

    On the 9800 my speed has dropped a bit but on the 9000 and the 8900 I
    regularly clocked in at 90+ wpm (error free). Full disclosure I type at 120+ wpm
    on a real keyboard.

    None of this is germane to the OPs question though as I DO NOT TEXT
    (some of you had to see that coming )

    Makes me wonder how Barbara Blackburn would have done with a BlackBerry.
    She once clocked 212 wpm

    AG, that's some serious typing speed. And error free! I couldn't imagine moving my thumbs that fast.

    Trust me you can. Trick is to recognize when your index fingers need to be
    involved. I'd be about as slow as a pregnant, three legged turtle if I only
    used my thumbs.

    Practice and get a timed word game or two

    I am 33-36WPM with one handed typing on my Torch, 35-40WPM on my Tour, 29-32WPM on my 9300

    I've never done a speed test with 2 hands but I suspect I would be in the high 60's-low 70's on my Torch, and probably low 70's on my Tour.

    wouldn't even guess on my 9300,


    IF I got to practicing with 2 hands and was looking to set a record, I might get high 70's but I am impressed with that guy very well done!,

    HOW the heck do you get your index finger involved on the BB?
    Min are perched by the lock and mute buttons when I type.

    ( I just trying to type with my index finger on my BB 2 hands I can't even get to 40WPM!)

    No. I mean with the phone. This is going to seem really odd and hard to
    picture:

    My phone is held: four finger of left hand except thumb on the back, last
    3 finger of the right hand on the back.

    Now here is where it gets tricky, my left thumb only touches the first 4 left
    column of keys, right thumb only the next three and right index finger the
    last three column of keys on the right.

    I have been doing this with full QWERTY PDA / cellphones forever. It works.
    Well, at least for me.

    That was me using your technique to type "hey what's up"

    That must take a good bit pf practice.

    I should add that that was with a full keyboard in Portrait with a touch screen phone. That maybe makes a difference.

    You got mad skillz! Lol

    @jusdis: I have been doing it that way so long it is second nature to me.
    But it really not that much of a stretch. In touch typing only certain fingers
    touch certain keys. I just kind of adapted it the small keyboard.

    For what it's worth, I tried that on the virtual keyboard. It looked like Klingon.

    Let me ask you guys, do you look at the keyboard when you type? I do, but I have read of others who don't look at the keys that they stay locked on the screen.

    How accurate are you typing without looking at the keyboard? Does it make you faster?

    Oh its pretty accurate. I'm still trying to get used to my new phone, but I only miss a few times but I can still delete and correct without needing to look at the keyboard.

    That's impressive. I may have to practice doing that. Maybe that's how I can up my speed to match some of the guys on here.

    If you want to increase your speed, become an auto-text power user. I have over 400 or the most commonly used English wrds abbreviated in auto-text, creating a personal shorthand. It saves me many keystrokes in every sentence. It's not just about typos and "special" words and phrases. I'll never own a phone without auto-text. It's much more powerful than predictive.
