About SureType technology and multi-tap

You can type on your BlackBerry® device using the SureType® input method or multi-tap input method.

SureType technology is designed to predict words as you type them. When you use SureType technology, you press the letter key for each letter in a word only once until the word appears. When you use multi-tap, you press a letter key once to type the first letter on the key, twice to type the second letter, and so on.

SureType technology is the default typing input method for most fields. Multi-tap is the default typing input method for phone number and password fields.
