Default BB typing talents (brag here)

Please Login to Remove!

ok....what do u use?
both thumbs like most?
one handed thumbs
any fingers involved?
while walking, driving, sleeping, bathing?
how about multi tasking?

I was impressed someone said they are speakerphoning and sending receiving mails at the same time....

do you type out whole sentences...or use "r" for are etc...?

Just curious, do share.

I have been known to do the following (which is way more than just typing LOL):
1) Type with one thumb (shortcuts included)
2) Type with 2 thumbs (typing everything out fully, no shortcuts)
3) Multitask (BlackBerry in right hand, other task with left hand)
4) BlackBerry in the dark (with the backlight on, sitting up or laying down in bed)
5) Sleep with my BlackBerry on my chest, on a pillow by my head or in my hand
6) In my van I have been known to check email, text messages, calendar, etc., sitting in the back seat with another person driving
7) BlackBerry while on my house phone (this is useful when I have to call T-Mobile for problems with my BlackBerry)
8) Talk on the phone while in the car (have done this with someone else driving; going to need to install a BT carkit and get a BT headset once I start driving on my own because I drive my van with hand controls)
9) BlackBerry while watching tv or using my pc
10) BlackBerry and talk on the BlackBerry at the same time (with speakerphone or BT headset)

Gotta love SureType and AutoText for all of the above reasons except numbers 5 & 8 LMAO

8700c users...

this is what I have done on several occasions.

I have been on the phone with customer support for a customer, pointing to a spot to be initialed on a contract by a customer with my left had while replying to an email on my blackbery using my right hand, while on a call on my blackberry using my other ear. All of that while giving my staff orders.

- One thumb while driving
- Two thumbs while walking and sitting
- Index figures and thumbs while typing BB at table

Kinda curious how one could claim "emailing and talking" at the same time. Mine (Nextel 7520) couldn't at all -- email is temporarily off while talking.

What is going on?

Emailing back and forth with folks in Hong Kong while watching a movie ("A History of Violence") in a movie theatre while at the same time eating popcorn and drinking an iced tea and then moving on to making out with my wife (not eating popcorn then, but still emailing). I may have done a bit of web surfing too, I can't remember (making out with my wife is quite distracting).

Use the trackwheel and Escape button to go back to the main screen while I yak on the phone LOL I'm guilty of it too with a handsfree or BT headset. But then again, I have T-Mobile so this feature was enabled.

You are obviously smart enough to be among the elite to use a BB. Why would you watch Fox News otherwise known as Faux News known for their Unfair and Biased reporting?

Taking "Smarts" in to consideration, wouldn't we be wise to consider this nothing more than an opinion that is unfair and Biased? I dont really consider FOX news to be biased and unfair.

Call it what you want... I will watch anything before watching some liberal news cast. Fox may be slanted but they are certainly slanted to my side.... The Right side....

You probably need to find a new mate if sex is so boring for you to need to reply to messages during sex.
