Is your thumb hurting from using the trackwheel, or from typing? My thumb has gotten sore from using the trackwheel a lot. I started using keyboard shortcuts and not using the trackwheel so much and no more problems.

There are some threads here with the keyboard shortcuts. A search should bring them up. Also they are in the Help on the Blackberry.

my problem with the thumbwheel is due to video poker.. there's no way around using it

Well, you could cut back on playing poker. :smile:
