Company Phone (Storm) I need Help with the Keyboard
I can not stand how the keyboard works on this thing. How can I turn off the suggested words? I'm trying to type something and it's trying to guess what I'm typing and it's not even close. Is there a way to turn this off?

Assuming you're on a 5.0 OS, hold the phone in landscape, go to options, click "Language and Text Input", and change "Word Completion" to "Auto Correction".
Works much betterMy BlackBerry history is sad, but a work in progress!
9530: Pretty much every leak from .75 on up to .419
9550: .320 (for about 20mins), .517, .607, .713
I guess you can follow me on Twitter?

Also again assuming you are using OS 5.0, I would recommend using a the full keyboard versus the SureType (two letters per key). I have bigger hands but I still manage to type much faster than people who use the SureType setup. If you wish to go to that it is under Options > Screen/Keyboard.
Also, if you are just getting used to your phone, give it a bit of time. It is frustrating at first, but when you get it down this thing is a champ. To help with typing errors, I changed my touchscreen settings as well (this is all under Options > Screen/Keyboard). Set:
Tap Interval to 500
Hover Period to 1000
Swipe Sensivitiy to at least 4
