    Options/Language, select the Input Language that has Multi-Tap for permanently disabling it. To do it Temporarily, press and hold the * key when in a text input field.

    Hope this helps

    Re: I wanna disable suretype

    I had the guy at my cingular store do it for me..never having had a QWERTY keyboard device helped me by being used to double tapping keys.. I'm not sure I will ever use the suretype.. I'm pretty sure my particular brain will just find it irritating.

    I find sure type to be fairly good if you don't make a lot of fumble-finger mistakes. If by chance, you type the wrong key, it really is hard to get it to be correct.

    Just my experience.

    Suretype is much faster than mulittap when you get used to it and it really helps if you by mistake type the right keys in the wrong order.

    Suretype is cool but in my line of work, slang and buzzwords change every week so autotext in my opinion is more efficient.

    Re: I wanna disable suretype

    I just purchased the 8130 and like all of the features but Sure Type is giving me a headache. I am having a difficult time getting the hang of it. Any advice on where I can go for "tutoring'?

    Yes the wizard is nice but sometimes when I am typing a word and I have already started the word, I will hit a key when I want the second letter on the key. If I hit the key twice, say I want an "R" and I hit the "1" key twice hoping for an "R", I get two "E's". Then I have to baackspace or delete and try again before I get the second letter, the "R".

    The more you use it the better you will get. Suretype learns your words very quickly. Just keep at it.
