Default How do you quickly turn on and off Suretype on the Sprint 8130 Pearl?

Please Login to Remove!

SureType is mostly good but sometimes it can not figure out what I want to say. Is there any easier way then pressing the button to the left of the track ball then scrolling the ball down to "Enable Multitap" then once I type the one word I want to type with Multitap clicking the button next to the track ball again and scrolling and pressing the "Enable SureType"....

In Conclusion is there any easy way to turn on and off SureType when I just want to turn it off for one word?

On the original Pearl devices, you could press and hold the Star key in a text field. However, on later versions of the software, this was removed, I think in OS 4.2.1. Doesn't work on my 8110
I think the way you listed is the quickest on software above 4.2.x.
