About typing input methods

You can type on your BlackBerry® device using the SureType® input method or the multi-tap input method.

SureType technology combines a traditional phone-style key layout with a familiar computer-style letter layout that is designed to provide a quick and comfortable typing and dialing experience.

SureType technology is designed to predict words as you type them. When you use SureType technology, you press the letter key for each letter in a word once until the word appears in a list that appears on the screen. For example, to type run, you would press the R key once, the U key once, and so on until run appears in the list.

When you use multi-tap, you press a letter key once to type the first letter on the key and twice to type the second letter. For example, to type run, you would press the key twice, the key once, and the key twice.

SureType technology is the default typing input method for most fields. Multi-tap is the default typing input method for phone number and password fields.
