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.

Well, you could cut back on playing poker.
