Type text using multi-tap
To perform this task, you must be using your BlackBerry smartphone in portrait view with the touch screen keyboard while using the reduced keyboard with the multi-tap input method turned on.
If you're using the multi-tap input method, your smartphone doesn't display a list of suggested words. You must press a key once to type the first letter on a key, and twice to type the second letter on the key.
Do any of the following:
- To type the first letter on a key, press the letter key once.
- To type the second letter on a key, press the letter key twice.
- To type the third letter on a key, press the letter key three times.
- To type the fourth letter on a key, press the letter key four times.
For example, to type run, you would press the R key three times, the U key twice, and the N key twice.
