It all depends on the model of Samsung that you have. On mine, (SGH-E730), when I write text messages I can opt whether i want regular typing, predictive text, numbers, or punctuation. Once I am in the "Create message" screen, this is controlled by the topmost left hand button. Pressing it switches from normal typing (icon is a capital A, followed by Eng) to predictive text (icon is a stylized T9, again followed by Eng), to numbers (icon is 1) to punctuation (icon is #/).

There is no general setting that controls this.

Hope this helps.

If not, go to http://www.samsung.com/products/wireless... select your phone from the dropdown list in the column right by the menu, and it will take you to the phone's subsite. there you can find both the user guide and FAQ (they are on the right side of the page). Go to the FAQ, select Internet & Messaging, there will probably be an answer to the question "How do i switch text input modes". If there isn't, click on the user guide, you may find your answer there.

SOURCE: 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.

Well it's not so much a solution as it is an answer.

T9 is 9-key Texting. So it will only predict what you're going to type if you're using the 9-key triple tap mode of texting.

It WILL NOT intelligently select options of what it thinks you are typing on the QWERTY keyboard.

I've had this phone for less then a week & so far that would be my only suggestion for improvement. Otherwise, it's an awesome lil' phone for what I use it for.

Turn on predictive text cricket samsung transfix


On the SCH-R470C Samsung phone from CRICKET, you have to brig up the keyboard, (as if you were Texting someone ) and there is a Key on the bottom left side of the Keyboard that looks like a small "Gear". That brings up the "Settings" menu - uncheck the box that says "Predictive Text". Whoever invented that incredibly annoying feature should be severely beaten with both vowels & consonants...
