Your 1st issue is a known problem, reported by other people.
I use SureType almost exclusively, and really find it works great. If you haven't given SureType a few days of trying it, you might want to. As it adds your common words to it's word list, it's accuracy improves greatly. I'd say it gets the word right about 95% of the time now.
As for the shortcut no longer working, yeah, RIM removed it after .64, not sure exactly which OS version, but it has been removed for quite some time. I really don't understand why they removed it, I used it alot.
I"m on T-Mo, OS .107, and don't have the Color Pearl issue you report. Sorry I couldn't be of help.
Oh, my 1 remaining issue is the display of the ABC icon on the Home Page! Drives me NUTS!!! Also forces me to switch back to SureType often. Otehrwise, 107 has been stable and speedy on my Pearl.
I can resist anything but temptation.
