About typing input methods
You can type on your BlackBerry® device using the SureType® input method or the multi-tap input method.
SureType technology combines a traditional phone-style key layout with a familiar computer-style letter layout that is designed to provide
a quick and comfortable typing and dialing experience.
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 once until the word appears in a list that appears on the screen. For example, to type run, you would press the R key once,
the U key once, and so on until run appears in the list.
When you use multi-tap, you press a letter key once to type the first letter on the key and twice to type the second letter. For example, to
type run, you would press the
key twice, the
key once, and the
key twice.
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.
Type text using SureType technology
1. Press the letter key once for each letter in a word.
2. Perform one of the following actions:
• To select an item from the list that appears when you type and start typing a new word, highlight the item. Press the
Enter key.
• To select an item from the list that appears when you type and continue typing the same word, click the item.
• To change a letter in a word that you are typing, highlight the letter. Click the alternate letter that appears on the screen.
To change a letter in a word after you finish typing the word, click the word. Highlight the letter. Click the alternate letter that appears
on the screen.
Switch typing input methods
1. In the device options, click Language.
2. Perform one of the following actions:
• To use the multi-tap input method, set the Input Language field to <Language> Multitap.
• To use the SureType® input method, set the Input Language field to <Language>.

SMS text messages
SMS text message basics
About SMS text messages
With an SMS phone number, you can send and receive SMS text messages. An SMS phone number is a phone number that your wireless

device sends SMS text messages using the first phone number that appears in the drop-down list at the top of the phone screen.
You can send SMS text messages to contacts who have SMS phone numbers. You can also forward SMS text messages as PIN or email
messages.
Find your SMS phone number
In the phone, your phone number appears at the top of the screen. If your wireless service provider has set up your BlackBerry® device

About multiple message lists
Depending on your email setup option, you might be able to associate your BlackBerry® device with more than one email account. For
example, you might be able to associate your device with a work email account and one or more personal email accounts. If you associate
your device with more than one email account, multiple message lists might appear on your device. In a message list for a specific email
79
account, you can open and manage email messages for that email account, and you can send messages using the email address for the
email account. For more information about associating your device with more than one email account, see the BlackBerry Internet
Service Online Help.
Depending on your theme, a separate message list might appear for SMS text messages and MMS messages.

MMS messages
MMS message basics
About MMS messages
With an MMS phone number, you can send and receive MMS messages that contain media files such as .jpg, .gif, .wbmp, .midi, .vcf
(vCard®), .ics (iCalendar), .avi, .mpg, or .mov files. An MMS phone number is a phone number that your wireless service provider sets up
for MMS messaging. If you have more than one phone number associated with your BlackBerry® device, your device sends MMS messages
using the first phone number that appears in the drop-down list at the top of the Phone screen.
You can add pictures that are not copyright protected to an MMS message, but the message cannot exceed 300 KB.
Prerequisites: MMS messaging
• Verify that your BlackBerry® device supports MMS messaging.
• Verify that your wireless service plan includes this service.
For more information, contact your system administrator or wireless service provider.
Find your MMS phone number
In the phone, your phone number appears at the top of the screen. If your wireless service provider has set up your BlackBerry® device

Typing input methods
About typing input methods
You can type on your BlackBerry® device using the SureType® input method or the multi-tap input method.
SureType technology combines a traditional phone-style key layout with a familiar computer-style letter layout that is designed to provide
a quick and comfortable typing and dialing experience.
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 once until the word appears in a list that appears on the screen. For example, to type run, you would press the R key once,
the U key once, and so on until run appears in the list.
When you use multi-tap, you press a letter key once to type the first letter on the key and twice to type the second letter. For example, to
type run, you would press the
key twice, the
key once, and the
key twice.
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.
Type text using SureType technology
1. Press the letter key once for each letter in a word.
2. Perform one of the following actions:

Synchronization
About synchronization
The wireless data synchronization feature is designed to synchronize organizer data (contacts, calendar entries, tasks, and memos) between
your BlackBerry® device and the email application on your computer over the wireless network.
The wireless email reconciliation feature is designed to reconcile email messages between your device and the email application on your
computer over the wireless network. When you file or delete email messages on your device, these email messages should be filed or
deleted in your email application. Likewise, any changes that you make to email messages in the email application on your computer
should be reflected on your device.
If wireless data synchronization or wireless email reconciliation is not available on your device or you have turned them off, you can use
the synchronization tool of the BlackBerry® Desktop Manager to synchronize your organizer data and email messages. For more
information, see the BlackBerry Desktop Software Online Help.
Prerequisites: Wireless email reconciliation
• If your BlackBerry® device is associated with the BlackBerry® Internet Service, verify that your wireless service provider supports

You can only synchronize the data in a custom address book field with a text field in the email application on your computer. For example,
you cannot add a contact's birthday to a custom address book field on your BlackBerry® device and synchronize it with the email application
on your computer, because the birthday field is a date field in the email application on your computer.
Some characters in calendar entries do not appear correctly after synchronization
If you schedule appointments or meetings on your BlackBerry® device that contain special characters or accents, your computer might
not support these characters.
On your computer, verify that you are using the correct default code page and that the correct font support is installed on your computer.

GPS technology
About GPS technology
Depending on your wireless service provider, you might be able to use location-based applications and location-based services on your
BlackBerry® device to get your GPS location. Location-based applications can use your GPS location to provide you with other locationbased information. For example, a location-based application could use your GPS location to provide you with driving directions.
If your device is connected to a CDMA network and you make an emergency call or your device is in emergency callback mode, an emergency
operator might be able to use GPS technology to estimate your location.
Note: In an emergency, always provide the emergency operator with as much information as possible. Emergency operators might not
be able to estimate your location using only GPS technology.
If your device does not have an internal GPS receiver or your wireless service provider does not support location-based services and you
want to use GPS technology, you can pair your BlackBerry device with a Bluetooth® enabled GPS receiver. For more information, contact
your wireless service provider.
Turn on GPS technology
Depending on your wireless service provider, the GPS options that appear on your BlackBerry® device might differ slightly from the options
that appear in this task.

Custom address book field data is not appearing on my computer
You can only synchronize the data in a custom address book field with a text field in the email application on your computer. For example,
you cannot add a contact's birthday to a custom address book field on your BlackBerry® device and synchronize it with the email application
on your computer, because the birthday field is a date field in the email application on your computer.
Caller ID pictures are not appearing on my device
If your BlackBerry® device is associated with a Microsoft® Outlook® 2000 email account and you add a picture for a contact in the email
application on your computer, verify that the file name for the picture is ContactPicture.jpg.

Notification profiles
Notification basics
About notification profiles
Notification profiles define how your BlackBerry® device notifies you of calendar and task reminders, and incoming messages, calls, and
browser content. Your device has six preloaded profiles: Loud, Vibrate, Quiet, Normal, Phone Only, and Off.
You can change preloaded notification profiles or create new ones. In your notification profiles, you can set different notification options
for different items, set ring tones, or set the volume for notification. If you set notification volume to Escalating, the notification volume
gradually increases.

Custom notification
About custom notification
You can create notification profile exceptions to receive different notification for incoming messages and calls from specific contacts. For
example, you can create a notification profile exception that uses the Loud profile for incoming messages and calls from a specific contact,
regardless of your active notification profile.
Your BlackBerry® device applies notification profile exceptions in the order in which they appear in the notification profile exception list.
If you create multiple notification profile exceptions that include the same contact, place the notification profile exception that you want
your device to apply first in the list.
Your device has one preloaded notification profile exception for important calls. You can add contacts to this notification profile exception,
or you can delete it.

About custom ring tones
You can assign a custom ring tone to a contact without changing other notifications.
Custom ring tone options appear with your contacts and your notification profiles. When you assign a custom ring tone to a contact, a
new profile exception appears with your notification profiles as "Calls From <contact>". Notification profile exceptions are shared between
your contacts and your notification profiles and changes that you make in one application are made in the other application.
Your BlackBerry® device bases the volume for custom ring tones on the volume that you set in the active notification profile.

Notification profile troubleshooting
My device is vibrating more times than expected
For calls, the number of times that the BlackBerry® device vibrates is not determined by the number of vibrations that you set in your
notification profile. The device vibrates until the caller or the wireless network ends the connection.
I am not receiving notification for incoming calls or messages
Try performing the following actions:
• In the profile list, verify that the Off profile is not selected.
206
• In a notification profile exception, verify that the Custom Phone Tune field is not set to Mute.
I cannot set some fields when creating a Calls From notification profile exception
If you assign a custom ring tone to a contact in the address book, a Calls From profile exception appears in the profile list. Because these
exceptions are for calls only, you can only set the Custom Phone Tune field.
