About the BlackBerry Keyboard

Use the BlackBerry Keyboard to communicate with the world. With prediction, you can select word suggestions that appear while you type. After you set up your keyboard preferences, you can learn how to cut, copy, and paste text, and delete words. You can type efficiently by creating custom text shortcuts and by using prediction, correction, and spell check. The BlackBerry Keyboard can learn the words and names that you might type by accessing the BlackBerry Hub and the Contacts app. You can also set up or change your typing and keyboard languages.

If your device has both a touch-sensitive physical keyboard and a touch screen keyboard, both keyboards support finger swipe gestures that allow you to choose word suggestions, edit text, and show the number and symbol list quickly.
