    Anyone else have thumbs that don't work well on touch screens?

    My right one is especially temperamental. It doesn't always register a tap and scrolls intermittently.
    It's really annoying and is tough to play games with. My fingers are fine.
    I clean my hands first and that doesn't help.
    Any suggestions or do I just have defective thumbs and should learn to live with it

    Why not use the keyboard then? But, that would defeat the purpose of having that touch screen...
    I wish I had those problems with a 9900. I want one.
    That is a wonderful device you have there.
    Enjoy it!!! Ha!

    I would, but it is with ALL touch screens. My Storm 2, bold 9900, playbook (and yes, even other people's icrap)
    It's MY thumbs.

    9810 in a charging cradle while going into USB mode - I have no choice but to use the touch screen to enter the device password...

    And the OP must be on to something- my right thumb almost always gets the key next to the one I want to type LOL

    If I had to guess I'd say that you don't have enough circulation in your thumbs to register on the touch screen. Some touch screens are heat activated and if your fingers aren't warm enough (due to low circulation) then they don't register properly.

    What this means is that you are "too cool" to use touch screens

    I love the touch screen on the Playbook. For me it is just the right size. I have used a friends Ipod touch, and found it hard to navigate. On the other hand, the Ipad I find to be too large. No offense to any Apple fanboys.
