    It can be done I do it most of the time with some errors. I just remember the keyboard on the curve is a shorter condensed version. I dont think I use a technique per se.

    I've had my pearl for a while so i can type w/o lookin on it no problem, but if you ever see me with a Bold or Curve you'd swear i never touched a blackberry before.

    "simpke"

    I find it would be a lot easier if the keys would stop moving around. I know I typed an 'a' but the screen shows a 's'.

    Yes you can touch type without looking at the keys.

    This is precisely what I love about the Curve. I can type without looking at the keyboard and I handle 60 - 80 emails per day. It takes some time, but if you want to learn how here is what I did. Slow down and type at about 1/2 your normal speed. Do this for at least a week, it' takes patience but all of a sudden you will begin to speed up without any errors. It's really no different than a laptop, or desktop keyboard in terms of getting used to the spacing. Once you do you will really love it. It should be noted however that this is impossible on the 88xx series or the Bold as those have side by side keys with no spaces between them like the Curve. Therefore you cannot tell where you are at without looking. It's why I prefer the Curve.

    Hope this helps you.
    Cheers...

    I guess I can consider myself pretty moderate w/o looking at the keyboard. Then again I looked at the keyboard a good 7 times just now, lol

    You are not wrong for looking while typing when you are driving. Other drivers just have to pay more attention to their surroundings while driving.
