Default Switching from SureType to ABC and back

Please Login to Remove!

For some reason my pearl will switch itself into ABC mode. How do I change it back to SureType? The only solution I know of at this point is to take the battery out and put it back in, but there's got to be a better way!

Thanks for your help!

When in a field where you can enter text, simply hit the menu key and select Enable SureType.

You can also quickly toggle between Suretype and Multitap by holding down the * key for a few seconds while in a text field.

Yes, but only with OS 4.2.0. 4.2.1 did away with that feature. Not sure if on purpose or by accident but either way it's gone on 4.2.1.
