    Alright all I'm a fairly big guy not fat but big none the less. I have tried and tried to get used to a standard Blackberry Curve from Verizon Wireless and didnt like it cause the buttons was too small. I am thinking of getting the Storm 2 whenever that hit store shelves but am just wondering why Rim doesnt make a Blackberry with bigger buttons.

    The 8830 has bigger buttons but is starting to become somewhat obsolete. Don't know if you still have the curve but I do and I just put a skin on it (I think its by casemate) that has an intergrated kepad cover. With this cover on, the buttons are raised, and separated a little. It may not be a total solution for you but it sure has cut down on my accidental pressing of buttons. I don't know if the Storm would be a good option either but it would be worth looking at.

    it takes a little bit of getting used to.. i have big hands, but the trick is figuring out how to find the "point" of your thumb. practice will make it a lot smoother for you. just go into your memo app and practice typing things.

    I type with the tip of my thumbnails, lol.

    The S2 will definitely have the largest, albeit virtual keys on any BB.

    The SureType 8230 and 8220 have the best sized buttons out of any BB.

    Yep the best feature on my 8230 is the buttons. They huge. I just wish it had the full qwerty instead of this half qwerty SureType board
