    Re: Qwerty or SureType

    SureType can be easier and faster after it gets used to the words you use most often. It will still get some words wrong but it learns. But like I said in my other posts on this thread, the much smaller 7100 series fits me much better. I don't have room for a full keyboard device while travelling.

    Re: Qwerty or SureType

    Its totally a matter of user preference. I'm sorry, but I totally disagree with those who say that qwerty is undisputably superior to SureType. It depends on how you use your bb. Obviously for someone like SuzzyP who's very fast with her thumbs, qwerty is the only way to go. But I don't type with my thumbs. I'm usually multitasking when I'm on my bb, so I either use it one-handed or I hold it in one hand and type with the other index finger. Qwerty wouldn't work for me and I won't even consider a device that I can't use one-handed. Neither is superior, they're just designed for different audiences.

    Re: Qwerty or SureType

    Good point. I type fast also (been clocked online at over 30 wpm on my 7105t), but because I have to carry a BlackBerry in a backpack, which is crammed with personal items and whatever else I may have to carry, and the fact that I aggravated wrist problems using full keyboard devices (brought about by my continuous use of my chair. I had to give up a SK2, which I really didn't like due to signal issues, due to this), the 7100 series fits me easier. I am sure that if I was able to carry a phone on my waist with a holster, I would go with the full keyboard device. Its all user preference.

    So to me the reason I use a qwerty (the 8700g) is because it's a superior device, not because I didn't like suretype.

    I think suretype is better.

    Re: Qwerty or SureType

    Just to add. I think it's cool to have all the great BB features in a smaller device. The qwert y keyboard limits the BB to that 1 look that all the imitators also try to have. The suretype devices are more unique looking. And most people i used to show are amazed at how you can type so regular (meaning one keystroke per letter) on an abbreviated keyboard

    Re: Qwerty or SureType

    What I like about my BB now is that my daughter is old enough to drive so I can BB everywhere we go. It doesn't really matter which KB I have cause it only took me a day to change over when I upgraded to my new 7130e.

    Same here. I only took one day to make the typing change over.

    Re: Qwerty or SureType

    I have always used QWERTY keys, and I hate when my phones try to predict words for me. I always ignore it! Although I've never used a Suretype BB.

    Is there anyway to turn off the Suretype (like how some phones have the option of turning T9 on or off)?

    Re: Qwerty or SureType

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Just wanted to add that I do love the ease of the full Qwerty. Altough, I just got a 7130c and I think the adjusting curve is great. I think the Sure Type is real easy to use. Either way you go, BlackBerry's the way.

    I absolutely agree! BB is the only way to go.
