Yes it is a hassle, but my instructions are for when the Pearl, for whatever reason, has changed the default input method from SureType to Multi-Tap. That happened to me once, don't know why, but when I went into the input method to change the setting it was mysteriously on multi-tap.
I did not want to always hold down a key to switch between modes, hence going through the hassle of changing it through the options menu.
