will there ever be an upgrade

i recently upgraded to a curve and i hate it i mean i like the features cuz the screen is bigger and more memory and so forth but i had a pearl and i am a big big texter i hardly talk and i liked the sure type on the pearl. is there gonna be an upgrade for this phone to get the sure type. i mean i know that since it has a full keyboard and all that it wont but i also tried the moto q and it had it on there which i liked i just didn't like the rest of sum of the features of the phone.  so if there is any way blackberry could put out either a download or something to get that on there device i know i would be happy as well as some other people that i have talked to that have this phone.. other than that it is a pretty good phone. so please blackberry people come up with something to help us texters go faster and better on this..anyone else agree maybe if we get enough people agreeing they will try to get it on the phones all blackberrys..

 Nope, there is not a way to put SureType on your full qwerty device.


Don't despair though! The new coming Storm 9530 touchscreen, will be full qwerty in landscape mode and SureType in portrait mode.
