    Per hayden, from blackberry

    SureType® Enhancements
    Word Completion
    As BlackBerry smartphone users type, a list of word options is displayed when the BlackBerry smartphone user pauses. The vertical list consists of word selections that are the closest match to the word the BlackBerry smartphone user is trying to type. The BlackBerry smartphone user may then select the word.
    Advanced Editing
    BlackBerry smartphone users may now scroll to a word they want to correct and move between specific letters by rolling the trackball up or down to flip between letters.
    Improved Frequency Learning
    Commonly used words are recognized with greater consistency.
    -------
    once the 8100 gets the 4.3 update, they will both type the same

    You may receive more info on it if it were moved to the 8100 section. I know when I had my Pearl I went to only those that would have info for the phone I was currently using.

    I really don't have a problem with my typing...if a word I use keeps coming up as another word I rarely use...I just go to Auto Text in the option screen n edit it there so that the other word doesn't come up anymore....I even have it set so that my most common phrase : "wuzzup, wut you up to today?" is accessable by just pressing the letter - R-....works great when you get a text while your driving....you could probably have a. Whole convo by just pressing a couple of buttons rather then just typing it all out....just imagine...instead of typing all of this I couldve assigned it to the letter -L-....pretty cool

    I'm confused, they did put it in the 8100 sub-forum.

    I did the same thing with "ice" now is "I've" by default. For some reason it ALWAYS wanted to type ice even though I never selected it. Also created a few like you did, but for bbl, ttyl, brb, bb, and bbm to spell those out in full.
