    Well I've only used the pearl cause that the phone I have. It a great phone. I'll be honest. You should try suretype. It's the best. Once you go suretype you can never go back to mutitap. The key with suretype is to not look at the screen with texting. Just straight text. Also remember that suretype thinks what your texting.

    I'll tell you this that I use to get mad when I typed a word and it didn't come on the screen.

    I own face with suretype. In fact, I typed this all out while talking to my mom about my school registration tomorrow.

    I am a SureType advocate. After a bit of learning and getting used to it is far better than multi tap. I can hardly stand to multi tap in passwords. Got to give it a week or 2. But if its for your daughter for sure she will be doing a lot of texting and likely will catch on faster than that even. Good luck. Regards cHAd ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Yeah my girlfriend hated the SureType feature and because of it decided that she hated my phone because of it. After a few trys at it she now really likes it and uses my pearl on a regular basis. The key for me really was not looking at what is on the screen while your typing as it messes up up

    Yeah, my daughter was trying to type the word "gurl" and with the suretype it took forever... Shes coming from a traditional cell phone with word typing, so will see.... I told her to give the bb a chance and she will be hooked... She seems to like that you can download your own themes...
