    I was wondering how people use the keyboard..whether you use your fingers themselves or the tip of your fingers(nails)

    I used to use my nails but I began using my actual fingers and the keyboard works MUCH better!

    Depends which keys I'm hitting. The further I get to the outside edges of the keyboard, the more I use my nails. Inner keys are more fingertip pads.

    Depends on if I haven't cut my nails in a while. I WAS wondering tho if using your nails would eventually damage the buttons...

    OK, what's the dif between a 'finger tip' and 'actual finger'? Makes no sense to me.

    I agree. With my old Treo 700p, the keys responded best to my fingernails, so that's how I started out typing with the Pre. On a lark when I tried the tips of my thumbs instead, I found that my speed and accuracy was MUCH better

    I, a male use my fingers - as I have small hands I can use the pad of my thumb.
    My wife, obviously a female uses her nails.
    Number of Pre's in household: 2, one for my wife and one for myself.

    Nails... Fat fingers, small keys. Not a good combo.

    I have fat, long fingers and I use the tips. I have grown pretty accurate, too!

    both, I try to stop using my nails but it seems the most efficient way.

    A hybrid of both. I too am worried about damaging the keys if i use my nails too much.
