    Argument with Mr SK - he uses his middle finger to type on his phone, which I think looks tacky (and just wrong). I use my first finger as it looks better. Curious as to others.....

    Middle and ring fingers. But usually I get frustrated and swap to a bigger keyboard.

    I use Swype, so sometimes one thumb if I'm holding the phone with one hand, or I use an index finger if I can hold the phone with the other hand.

    If you don't use both thumbs you didn't grow up in the mobile era.

    Why both thumbs though? I can't see that this would be better than one, I suppose it depends on the size of the phone (and yes I am referring to smartphones).

    The user can type considerably faster.

    The more widespread use of thumbs to text etc has seen an onset of 'Blackberry Thumb' or De Quervain's tenosynovitis. I'm having mine operated on next summer ;)

    They will also suffer from arthritic thumbs soon. Very soon.
