So far I'm finding it really difficult to type with two thumbs. One finger seems to work well. Maybe later I'll try two thumbs as I get more comfortable with the interface.

I found typing with two thumbs increasingly more difficult as the iPhone is so thin and has a completely smooth flat back. Anyone else have this problem getting a grip on it?

I'm typing predominately with 2 thumbs. Just as they said, I'm getting pretty used to it and I'm typing pretty much just as fast as with my old Motorola v551.

It's not made for 2 thumbs, and if you try to type quickly on the keyboard, you'll see why. WAY better just holding it with one hand and tapping away with the other.

I have the sample problem with holding it securely and typing with two thumbs. It just doesn't feel comfortable and I keep hitting the wrong keys. I'm much more accurate with one finger.

I wonder if there's a two finger method that could also work? Or even work up to a full four finger method! (Okay, now I'm dreaming.)

I'm also having pretty good luck typing with one finger. The learning curve for the keyboard isn't nearly as steep as I thought it might be.

I did find it a bit funky to use two thumbs due to the thin size, but when I got a Cellet skin for it (sorry Rob, but they had it in stock at the Apple store) it was much easier to type.

i use both actually. Two thumbs to support my one finger input. IE: One finger is what comes naturally...then I speed up a bit with the two thumbs. Hehehe sounds intimitely sexual. But u get my meaning.
