The Problem with EVERY BlackBerry

This is probably written in the wrong place (admin feel free to move this post!) but so long as BlackBerry developers read this I don't care.


Every single Blackberry mobile phone has a HUGE design fault!!!!




For those of us glamorous women who like to grow their fingernails, you have NO idea how difficult this situation is! I am DESPORATE for one of these phones but I'm not going to spend money on a device I can't use without the aid of a pencil to prod the buttons! Seriously, the length of my nails means I end up pressing several buttons at once! It's RIDICULOUS!


All I ask is for a stylus!

Re: The Problem with EVERY BlackBerry

Dear Melusel,

are you a painter ? I really think it will be hard for you to type on each key with a stylus. The only solution would be to have a stylus as large as a Stabilo Boss, but it kinda would defeat the purpose.

Luckily for you, there is a solution !

(I hope you have a big purse)

Re: The Problem with EVERY BlackBerry

HAHAHAHA!!! That picture is hilarious!


I dunno, I thought I'd ask as a friend suggested the stylus idea and I was wondering if it'd work!! Obviously not! I'll just have to deal with the tiny buttons and accept it'll take me 5 minutes to send a text!!


thanks for your help though!




p.s and for the record, I am a painter actually!! As odd as that sounds! Smiley Wink
