    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com) why don't you give "enable SureType" in the menu a try.

    I have to say I like it and I got used to it a lot faster than others have said. I do agree try the suretype and thing will get a lot easier.

    And if you set your language to English it pretty much picks the words that you are trying to say without hitting it twice. Good luck.

    Sure-Type is too much work to make sure that you get the correct word. I'm waiting for the 8800/8900 (whatever they call it) that is like the Pearl but wider with a full keyboard.

    If you think the Pearlkeyboard is bad youshould try the Blackjack's. Ihad the Blackjack for about two weeks before I took it back and exchanged it for my Pearl.

    The Blackjack's keyboard was too confusing to use because the numbers used for dialing were seperated. Very frustrating as I use my phone in the car a lot and dial by feel. Also with the Pearl I don't have to worry about manually dialing cause I can use Voicedial!

    I was a big qwerty user until I got use to SureType, I use SureType a lot and write really faster than I use with my 7290
    I understand that some people doesn't like SureType but the thing you have to learn in using it is to stop looking at the screen 'cause this is the main reason why people doesn't like it.

    i'm waiting on the 8800. i can use the 8100 keyb, and indeed its probably good excercise for my brain to use it (same as sometimes I like to write right-handed instead of left) but I just like a full keyboard. I'm funny like that.

    Re: Like the pearl but getting tired of the keyboard

    As I started typing faster on the pearl suretype keyboard I find that its harder to type as fast as the single keyed 7290. I keep (accidentally) hitting multiple buttons as I try and type fast, and then getting gibberish and then have to delete and start again. The suretype is nice though because if you spell something wrong it comes out as gibberish. I can't wait for the 8800's full keyboard, but i'll keep on trying with the suretype.

    The more I use SureType, the more I like it.

    Me too. Took maybe a week or so but now I fly across the Pearl keyboard - kind of anyway! Just takes a bit of perseverence.

    Re: Like the pearl but getting tired of the keyboard

    I can type fast enough on the Pearl, not superfast. But I will trade the narrow size of the Pearl any day as a tradeoff. Those waiting for the 8800 will get a wider unit, but with QWERT. I like the Pearls size.
