Could you tell me what the E/R key is? I can access blackberry menu, but except for emails and bbm I cannot access apps.

On my 8220 you jump down the menu with the "E/R/1" key twice and then hit enter to toggle between Multi and Sure type. (i.e not once like in the above post).

It depends on the application you are in, as sometimes there are other entries in the menu that are also mapped to the E/R/1 key, and pressing the key basically cycles between them. I find that usually one press takes me there, sometimes two, and once in a while three presses. Since I discovered this, I don't believe I have EVER had to use the trackball to toggle entry modes, and I don't recall any application that mapped this functionality in the menu to any key other than E/R/1. Maybe that's a nice fluke, or maybe there is coding standard somewhere keeping it consistent. But yes, sometimes it takes more than one press.
One other tip is to remember to toggle back to SureType (which I prefer most of the time) immediately after MultiTap text entry, before leaving the text entry field, since there is no way to change modes after leaving the field because that menu item only appears in that context.
