    I have the same problem - 'will' is always 9455; 'back' comes up as 2225; is comes up as 47 etc. It is infuriating, particularly as I forget it does this and type the text then check back and find odd 'numeric words' dotted through the message!

If you have accidentally saved a word into the T9 dictionary (ie, "IS" comes up with "47" or "Get" comes up with "HDU", you can teach the dictionary to revert back to the original word.

What you have to do is..... create a new text message, enter the text that is annoying, (ie, "IS"). When you type the word and it comes up with the annoying one, select the word that you wanted and enter a space, and do it again and again - you can do this in the same text message - it can take up to 20 goes but eventually, the dictionary recognises that you actually wanted "IS".

start writing the next word.

How do I change to simple text type every letter and not joined


I may be wrong but your talking about predicted text right? Where you type a letter and it comes up with a word instead of the actual individual letter? - you need to change your settings in text, you can simply hold # or * on your keypad (you should see a little icon somewhere saying T9, this means predicted text) after holding one of these buttons for about a second or two, it should disappear, allowing you to type without predicted text on.

Hope this helps,

Reset the T9 text dictionary


I ran into this problem as well, and it is extremely annoying. I just lived with it for the longest time and then I finally decided to go looking for a solution. That came to a quick end when I found the Samsung FAQ and it said that there is no way to delete words from the predictive dictionary. However, that got me thinking. If it's predictive, can I teach the predictive to write the correct word? The answer is YES! Open a blank text message, don't worry about a number just go to the text entry portion. Type out the word and press zero to change it to the correct word instead of the numbers. Do this 10-20 times IN A ROW and then the phone will recognize the right word as being most used and change it back to that.

Turn off the predictive text for E250


it is the same key as to change case. If you press it repeatedly, it'll cycle through various options in the top right of the screen:
initial caps with predictive,
all caps predictive,
lower case predictive,
numbers,
initial caps without predictive,
all caps without predictive,
lower case without predictive.

When T9 is not displayed, predictive text is off.

Just to spice things up, Samsung's idiotic software designers made it so that depending on the situation you're inputting text, the order that things cycle through is different, so you can't just press it a certain number of times to turn it off, you have to pay attention to the icon in the top right.
