Red face I'm so confused. Keyboard issues.

Please Login to Remove!

hi everyone, i'm new to the world of blackberry and i have what i think may ba a wierd question, well actually two questions. the first issue i have is this: when i am typing with the phone horizontal the keyboard i awesome, especially now that i adjusted the key rate, tap, and hover settings as suggested in another thread. however when i am typing with the phone in the vertical position i am unable to switch from the "auto-complete" text the standard conventional "multi-tap" mode. for instance if i need to type a stock symbol such as "amd" all i can get to come up with is "and". i know how retarded i sound but on all my other conventional phones i was able to toggle back and forth between the two typing methods, am i able to do so now?

question two finally: my gf has a storm also, has all the same settings as mine however she has the opposite problem. her phone will only allow her to type in the traditional mode even though "auto-complete" is turned on. any ideas? thank you for any help you have to offer.

Your girlfriend needs to go to option>screen/keyboard and set the portrait view keyboard to suretype.

When you're typing a message and want to switch to multitap, hit the BB button and then scroll down to enable multitap.

If you press and hold the 123 for a second or two you will notice a padlock show up on that key locking the keypad on numerics. Then you just click the "123" key again to unlock it.
