Default How do you hold your BlackBerry?

Please Login to Remove!

I know this is kind of a dumb question, but how do you guys hold your blackberry so that you can scroll while keeping your hands in a position where you are able to type without having to re-adjust the blackberry.

This is sort of a newb question, but I have never really owned a blackberry.

No such thing as dumb questions, but I have asked some dooseys,
the blackberry just seems to end up in my Left hand I use the pray / 2 thumb type position, and then I switch to right hand to use scroll wheel with thumb or back to my left hand and scroll with my middle or pointing finger.

I usually stand on my head while wearing a funnel made of aluminum foil, left arm stretch towards the western sky twirling a pineapple, with a badger balanced on my right foot holding the blackberry in my right hand while using the trackwheel with my left foot and the keypad with my nose.

Damn you. I thought I was unique in doing that. The only difference is I balance a beaver with my right foot. Must be a canadian thing.

Well if you want to get technical, can you substitute a wolverine for a badger?

One handed (right) while scrolling and clicking and then two handed while typing.

Seems pretty generic....

I keep dropping my BlackBerry for the millionth time. To concrete, asphalt, hardwood, and it always survives. I even had a 5 foot drop to solid hardwood too (neck height)

But I was wondering, can you hold it in such a way that you can have both hands on it, with your thumbs on the keyboard, and use your right index to navigate? Or is the BB to big?
