SureType & 8120
Is it just me or SureType has gotten worse in the 8120 compared with 8100? (4.3 vs 4.2)
Not really. I am on my 3rd ST device(7100,8100,8120) and I have backed up and moved my info and it has learned me quite well! I am twice as fast on it as my curve just because I am so used to it! If you have a specific problem, I would help if I can. . . Hope this helps. .. .

I happen to agree, but I wouldn't say it's worse than the 8100, just not "more improved" than it was hyped up to be.
I have a love/hate relationship with SureType. At times it's amazing and I find myself typing so fast that I can barely comprehend if I'm making sense. Then there are times where it's ridiculously slow and suggests words that would never make sense that I want to fling it out the window. For me personally, I'm upgrading to the 8330 in January and while I know it's going to take getting used to, I know for a fact I won't miss SureType.
I find the 8120 the easiest of my 4 SureType models (7100t, 7105t, 8100 and 8120). I still have mistakes while typing but I have basically gotten to where I can type without looking at the keyboard with one or 2 hands.
I got my hands on the 8220 2 weeks ago and from the feel of it, it seems like I wouldn't have any problems making the transition. Just have to give it time.
I am able to type without looking at the phone with two hands and not make any mistakes. I think that the 8120 is the best phone to type on. In my rankings it goes, 8120, 7105t, 8100. I hated the 8100 suretype, the 8120 is far the best keyboard out there. Great phone but just too many bugs thou

I still like SureType, cause when it works there is nothing better.
For me, SureType is a real love/hate relationship. Nice and fast sometimes. Painfully slow at others. I just use the rule of thumb that the faster you try to type, the slower SureType will make you type. I've always been a fan of the 8120. But check out the 8220 for the bigger SureType keyboard, which I find easier to type on. Check out my video comparison of the two phones at youtube.com/watch?v=KDz4PZPc5bo

I believe that if you reload the OS, suretype will be installed.
