About typing

When you need to type, your BlackBerry® device displays one of three keyboard styles automatically, based on the field that you type in and the orientation of your device.

If you are using your device in portrait view, you can switch between the SureType® keyboard, multi-tap keyboard and full keyboard. The SureType keyboard and multi-tap keyboard show more than one letter on each key. The full keyboard uses a computer-style letter layout with one letter on each key.

SureType technology combines a traditional phone-style key layout with a familiar computer-style letter layout. SureType technology is designed to predict words as you type them.

If you are using your device in landscape view, you can type using the full keyboard.
