I wanted to type kbean, and it comes up know. The problem is that once I typed the "b", the whole word know and variations show, but none includes kb, so I have to go back and re-do to get the b. Is that what one has to do in these situations, or did I miss something? thanks.

type one letter at a time. after K hit the B key, if it is N, then scroll down to B or hit DEL and hit the B key again. do this until you finish the word properly. after that hit space, and suretype will remember it. in the device setup wizard there is a good typing tutorial as well, i recommend for all new Suretypers

You can also enable multi-tap from the menu if you have to spell a word that is not a real word. (i.e. username)

Or simply go into Options>Custom Dictionary and add the word manually, then it will be in the devices memory

I find that I can't do one letter at a time in these situations, it pulls up the whole word...does that happen some times?

Turn off predictive input.

Go to Options -> Language scroll to the bottom and click on Input Options. Scroll to the bottom and uncheck predictive input. You will love your new Pearl!

Thanks, that makes sense now. I think I find predictive input useful lots of times, it's just when odd words come up that it creates a problem. Going to multitap, or simply accepting having to backspace on those relatively rare occasions may be what I must do. But this clarifies my options. thanks again.
