Have had a BB 7130e since March/06 from Bell Mobility in Toronto. At first I hated the SureType but was determined to master it. I thought that I would never get used to it and really missed a qwerty keyboard.
After about a week, I got the hang of it and would now not go back to a qwerty. So, if anyone has doubts about this new technology, don't give up - just keep on practising!!
P.S. - BBForums.com is a great site.
