Do any of you use mutli-tap instead of Suretype?

I do, only because I dislike suretype with a passion. Come to think of it my left thumb hurt because I usually type one handed XD

I have really small hands, and it's super easy to type one handed.

when you type two-handed is it cumbersome? i'm worried the keyboard will be too tiny.

I was in the multitap camp until I loaded the new OS which made multitap cumbersome.

I've since switched to suretype and find I can type much faster.

Same here, first could not get use to the suretype and exclusively used multitap, but after refining my dictionary and practice, I'm a convert to Suretype and flying through emails now.

Nah, I mostly type one handed because I'm lazy. But the keyboard does not feel cramped at all, especially compared to my last phone that had a slide out qwerty and that was a challenge to type on...it was soo cramped!

My hands are average size I guess (never really thought about it) and I can fly through emails or txt's without much problem at all.

The SureType is soooo annoying! It took forever to send texts and IM's. All my friends thought it was because the BB sucked (bite your tounge!). Once I disabled it, it was all good. And the size of the keyboard is not a problem, I like that it's compact, took me a day or so to get used to having 2 letters on one key tho.

Suretype does learn, although I did send a text to a friend asking how her Gayfever was this morning.

If I wanted multi-tap, I would have stuck with t9 phones.

Well I use suretype and it works pretty well for me and the keys don't seem cramped at all.
