    When you're typing a text message, open the menu and select "Enable SureType".

    Ienabled that and still nothing for my text messages. Multitap and auto text work fine with my emails on my pearl but not with text and multitap and auto text work great with my email and text on my 8700g~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I agree with Peter. It works fine for me on bb messenger. I don't send many SMS so I haven't tried that.

    From the main menu, go to Options. Then go to SMS Text and see if Disable Autotext is set to yes.

    Re: Auto text on pearl!

    Raven1a thanks a lot. And thanks to everyone for your help. I got autotext working for sms. I had to go to my options and enable my autotext for sms. When it said yes I thought that meant autotext was on but that meant it wsa disabled. Silly me~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Cool Glad I could help. Most of it's just exploring around and seeing what each of the settings does.

    Yeah. But, it's called different things in different parts of the pearl for some reason.

    When you try to enable it from inside an SMS it's called SureType. But if Options>SMS Text it's called AutoText. WTF!!! Have to have it enabled there too or SureType doesn't work.

    Re: Auto text on pearl!

    No suretype is like predictive text. Autotext is a little different. AutoText is designed to replace specific text that you type with preloaded AutoText entries. If you type text that can be replaced with an AutoText entry, the text changes after you press the Space key.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
