    I own a bb pearl. How do I get the keyboard to type the word without double clicking the keypad twice?

    Welcome to CB! Hit menu and enable sure type. The predicted type takes a little getting use to. The trick is to not pay attention to what its doing and just let it do its thing. Go to memo pad and just type random sentences. Once you get the hang of it you'll see its pretty fast.

    LOL, it is taking a while to adjust to SureType, but that is pretty well exactly where I am. Ignore it, 98% it will be correct.

    In practice, it is a matter of watching the pop up display. Usually, you will see the correct word choice within a few keystrokes. Press the trackball to accept the word and carry on.

    Review Options / Custom Dictionary and remove your misspelled words, that will help the accuracy, a lot.

    Welcome! a lot of people don't like the pearl because of the keyboard, but the best thing about the sure type is if you use the same words a lot e.g. "the business meeting was canceled." as you type bu it will complete the rest for you. my most was a 13 letter word with 3 tapes vs. 13 tapes from a curve's qwerty board.
