How long does it take to learn to type on an iphone?

I've tried out the various generations of iphones several times since 2009 and have just never been able to get used to the on-screen keyboard. I made a desperate search for a blackberry last week, but no such luck, got an iphone on a contract. It's infuriating, and I don't really have overly large hands for a guy:

Nine times out of every ten, my thumb (I'm assuming I'm meant to use my thumbs, since the phone is held with fingers) touches the key next to the one I want, even in landscape mode. It takes about three minutes to type a five-word sentence. It's a great product, but I've had it a week now and just cannot use it for texting or facebook. Looks like I'll have to try and get rid of it and suck up the contract cost, putting its sim in an unlocked blackberry
