Stylus / worthwhile?


I see stylus's being sold for use with Iphones/pads and such ... will they work with a BB Torch? My fingers have trouble hitting the right keys and icons on the screen?

Re: Stylus / worthwhile?

I tried using a stylus at one point, but I don't believe the device has the type of screen that would recognize it.

Re: Stylus / worthwhile?

Boomer56 is correct.  The Torch touchscreen is heat sensitive and not just pressure sensitive like many other phones.  A stylus will not work on it (unless it's a special stylus that emits heat).  iPhones work exclusively on touch, so any stylus or toothpick or stick from off the ground will work.



I hope that helps you.  Smiley Happy
