Default Help with Suretype

Please Login to Remove!

When I got my 7130e I didn't wanna be bothered with the Suretype so I disabled it. Now I like using it but I can't figure out how to enable it permanently, I have to enable each time. Does anyone know how I can go back in and enable it?

I had the same problem as you. Try going to Options/Language/Input Method, and see what it says. Mine was reporting English United States-Multitap, while the other option was simply English (United States). Choosing other than 'multi-tap' was the trick to get SureType back for me.

Right, if it's presently 'multitap', hold down the *! Also, this is what you use for quick easy swapping of 'multitap' & 'suretype'...

That works if you are in edit mode (editing an e-mail or task or note). It will not work from the home screen.

So there's a difference between suretype and multitype?

Yes, multitype, as in the name, you have to press more keys to get the respective words that you want. As with suretype, the device helps you; almost like T9...

If you press * from the home page, it is a shortcut to lock the device.
