In sharp contrast with the 7105t, where I could type at a brisk pace just fine, my new 8100 messes up regularly in detecting doubleclicks. 3 times in the previous sentence!
Has anybody else noticed this?
Mine has had that same problem. It started about a month ago
It is quite annoying.
The keyboard is the same as my 7105t's... I have been typing this way for years. Not a problem on that device... big problem on 8100! It happens ALL the time.
Am I to believe corners are being cut, in the sense that SureType (blechhh!) is favored over MultiTap, and coding support for the latter is of no concern and a low-priority issue?!
I am having the same problem, nothing pisses me off more. Takes me 2 to 3 times as long to type anything out because of this issue. *sighs*
I think it may be because MultiTap is the default method for typing passwords.
Tips For Learning SureType:
1) Give SureType a day or two (maybe a week at the most). It only takes 1 tap to get each letter.
2) Download Trooper Typing from mobile.blackberry.net Game section.
3) Don't look at the keyboard when typing.
4) Set the options you want in Options>Language>Input Options.
5) Clear out the Custom Wordlist (Options>Custom Wordlist) of all words you do not want to use.
6) Use the trackball to scroll to the combination of words or letters you want until it builds the word you want. Press the Space bar to have that word added to the Custom Wordlist.
Hope this helps as a start to accepting SureType.

I've tried both and can say that suretype is the easiest for me because I only hit each key once and I don't have to be looking at the keyboard. Give it a chance!
Not to sound like a clone, but be patient. Type at a steady pace vs ultrafast. Great tip on clearing out all your "unwanted" custom words. They add up pretty quick and will slow down your single tap typing.
had an 8700, went to the 8100. could not get used to the suretype gig. went to the curve. maybe its what you start out on that you become comfortable with-dunno.

This forced me to use sure type because of this glitch, but I figured a somewhat fix. When you text, and this only works with texting, if you were to type the word 'juice' you would type j then u right after u quickly slide the track ball to the right, this allows faster typing then tap 3 two times for the i. And the double repeat thing- happens like no matter what but if you keep your texting at a even pace it happens a lot less often.this probably doesn't help but the multitap is f'd
dang i thought i was th only 1! i hate that! and it happends allll the time!!! no way 2 fix this yet???
