BlackBerry Keyboard Options

If you've ever struggled with the BlackBerry keyboard either being too slow or too fast, there is a simple solution. Thankfully buried in the settings is the Key Rate option that allows you to raise or lower the speed of the keyboard. Depending on your device and/or OS, you may find that you often make typos when typing too fast and want to slow things down, or you're just a typing wizard and need the keboard to keep up with your magical fingers. Whatever your case may be, you can easily change the key rate on your BlackBerry. Keep reading to find out how.

How to change the key rate on your BlackBerry Smartphone

To find the key rate option, head to Options > Typing and Language > Keyboard

Key Rate Settings

Here you'll see a few options, one of which is Key Rate. Click the dropdown and you can choose from Slow, Medium Slow, Normal (default), Medium Fast or Fast. Depending on what you're trying to accomplish there should be a setting that suits you. I keep mine set at Medium Slow most times and I rarely have many typos (and I still type pretty fast). Play around and see what works best for you!
