    Go to an area where u will type a message, and press * until it pops up and says multitype active. Repeat to turn back on.

    IMO you should give the suretype a try - i didn't like it at first but i love it now

    just try and type without even looking at the screen, you'll be surprised how accurate it can be

    just a thought

    I agree with the others. Suretype can be really accurate. Be aware, when typing phrases it does not recognize, it will take some trying to get it right. Suretype will take all thef names from your address book, and will learn stuff within a few times of typing it.
