Default So do you suffer from "Blackberry Thumb?"

Please Login to Remove!

Well, do you? I use my BB so much that I get thumb cramps every so often. I just have my fiance give me a nice hand massage while she watches her American Idol. My old boss has been using a BB since the initial release and he has had to go to the doctor coutless times because of his heavy usage.

Ha ha, I don't doubt that when I get my BB I will get thumb cramps. I got hand cramps from using the stylus on my PDA before, and get cramps on the sides of my hands because they are smaller and I have to stretch them to reach the far keys on my computer keyboard.

I use whatever shortcut I can to reduce the need to roll the wheel for navigation. This seems to work well for me....

Example: T - top of page, B - bottom, space bar for page down/up, etc.

I have actually read a few articles about serious thumb problems resulting from cell phone overuse.
