As stated earlier, SureType will not complete the words for you while you type. If it's shortcuts you're looking for while composing emails, you may want to read up on the BB's AutoText feature. Since you didn't mention AutoText, I will assume you weren't familiar with it. AutoText lets you use shortcuts for words, phrases, or even multiple lines of text. AutoText is also helpful in correcting typos. For instance, when you type "teh" it will correct it by replacing "teh" with "the". You can also have it replace shortcuts like "btw" with "between" or "tmw" with "tomorrow. AutoText can be very useful in helping you composing emails - and it can be customized to your liking.
