    Re: typing

    While in a menu that involves typing, email, text, BB Messenger, click the trackball and you will see a menu, and then you should see enable suretype. I am going off of all other BB's, never used the pearl myself. Should be the same though. Let us know.

    You want to check that you have not lost your default setting for SureType, as opposed to "multitap" which requires hitting the keys twice, etc.

    RIM requires the most obscure way to change the default settings from SureType to MultiTap.

    Here is how it is done:

    <Options>

    <Language> Don't ask me why they put the typing method under "language"

    <Input Language>

    Under input language make sure it says:

    <English (United States)> Don't ask me why they did not say "SureType"

    <Escape> key to save settings.

    Note:

    If under Input Language it says "English (United States,Multitap)" this is why once in awhile the system reverts or resets to MultiTap.

    So to cut down on this happening, change the settings as above rather than by pressing down and holding down the alt key or pressing the trackball.

    Re: typing

    That's what my settings were at... It seems to only happen I use the .. *not sure what it's called*.. where say if I wanted to call/text Bob and I just hit the 8 key and scroll down to bob and the click "SMS Bob" then it seems to be on multitap not suretype


    Not positive if this makes any sense because I don't really know what I'm talking about

    Re: typing

    That's a good question.. I would like a sort of billiards game and old arcade games are always good. But I would like them to be free.

    Oh and maybe a golf or bowling game

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ Check out the nes emulator in the downloads section. That's a start.

    Re: typing

    It says "Install at your own risk" ... Do you happen to know if it is safe? Would it be on the site if it wasn't safe?
