I HATE SURETYPE

I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE Suretype. I am convinced it must be the most annoying 'innovation' introduced to the communications industry since the carrier pigeons first suffered from athlete's foot in the Ice Age.

Is there ANY WAY to PERMANENTLY disable it in ALL applications?
Some sort of hotfix?

Can I hard code it?

Do I have to dismantle the phone?

Hire a technician to crack the firmware?

Operate on the phone with a sledgehammer?

HELP!!

Re: I HATE SURETYPE

Hey ollie-kidd,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

Thanks for the question.

 

To turn off suretype and switch to multitap, follow these steps:

 

Go into Options>Language and change the Input Language Field to multitap and press Menu>Save.

 

Let me know if you have any more questions.

 

Cheers.
