    Is there anyway to permanently enable MultiTap when typing in portrait mode? I have it enabled in Options but whenever I open my phone book and I want to click through contacts, I try MultiTap but I always get Suretype.

    It's just easier and faster for me with MultiTap, so it's something I'd like to use if I can.

    yeah im actually trying to ask the same question too.. i have it enabled as multitap on screen/keyboard option. sometimes it is in multitap but there are times that i have to re-enable multitap again.

    Alot of people tend to like suretype but it just gives me mad confusion.. I guess it's just something I have to get used to and get better to.

    i'm on .75. I've been hesitant to update because I'm new to BBs and I don't want to have any issues with my Storm, as it's been working perfectly except for this issue.

    same exact problem for me haha.. im new to the storm as well.. kinda scared to update my OS because of the whole "install at your own risk" thing.. and + idk how to do it period or where to get the OS. I kinda don't wanna just google it because it might give me the wrong file.

    All:

    It would appear that the fix was put into the OS upgrades starting with .83....rb was correct.

    and there are several good threads (mostly written by steve) with how to upgrade OS... it's up to you if this "issue" is worth upgrading for.

    does it still show the multitap keys but say you wanted to type the letter 'c' when you hit the number '2' 3 times it spells out cab?

    for me it does that, it still shows the multitap keys but it seems to be using suretype

    To be honest, Ive been using suretype ever since I downgraded back to .75.. it's really not that bad, except it's kinda confusing when ure trying to curse or say something slang..

    Only thing that sucks for using suretype is that I can't make my msgs short anymore :[ every word I type has to be the full word lol..

    I'll be patiently waiting for an official release and hope that it fixes our problem

    This will have to be my option too unless I begin hearing the unofficial .86 upgrades are working well enough to warrant a chance.

    Does anyone have any idea when the next official upgrade will come?

    You can add the curse/slang words to your custom dictionary. I did that b/c I have a big mouth and tend to need all the shorting possible to squeeze my message down to 160 chars.
