Simple. Go to your phones settings in the messages ((Messages, Menu, Then It should say Text Input Somewhere)). Change your text input to TAP English((I Believe)). To Text in your current Setting which is called PREDICTIVE TEXT. Simply press the letter you need 1 time and then the next. For Example: DOG
Press the D 1 Time
Then The O 1 Time
Then the G 1 Time
It should spell out by itself, but if not their should be a scroll key((Depends on what phone you have to determine Scroll Key))

How do i set predictive text on samsung m8800


Follow the below mentioned method, also see the advantages of T9 dictionary :
1.
Check your manual to learn more about text messaging
Check your cell phone's user manual to see if your cell phone has the T9 function. While most new phones contain this function, if you have an older phone, you'll want to check to be certain. Look under the Text Messaging section in the manual.
2.
Enable T9 for easy texting
Enable the T9 setting on your cell phone. Some phone require that you enable this function. Check under your cell phone's Options menu and also under the text messaging options. Depending on your cell phone, you may be able to set T9 as the default method of text input or you may have to toggle the text input functions to choose T9 for every text message. Generally, the toggle key will be your asterisk key. Again, check your cell phone's manual for more information.
3.
Choose your language and other preferences for T9 texting
Pick your T9 preferences. Your T9 function may allow you to set several preferences. The most typical preference is language, and you also may able to set whether you want your cell phone to use T9 for word completion only or to predict which word you will type next. You may also be able to set the "delay" - the amount of time before your T9 function changes the letters you are typing to what it thinks they should be. Again, try your Options or Preferences menus in the text messaging module of your cell phone or consult your cell phone's manual. You will want to try different set-ups to determine which works best for you and your style of text messaging.
4.
T9 gives you more then one way to select the right word for your text message
Type your text message, toggling for T9 if your phone requires it. Once the T9 function is enabled or toggled, simply type the word you want. Do not be concerned if the letters do not appear correctly when you first start typing the word - they will correct themselves when you finish typing the word, as long as you spell it correctly. Your phone may offer a drop-down menu with word suggestions as you type. If your word shows up, scroll down and select it if you wish or continue typing your word. If your phone does not offer a drop-down menu, and the word that you type is not the word that you wanted, press the Down arrow key on your cell phone and another word will show up. Keep pressing the Down arrow until your word shows up. When you have the word you want, use the space function to continue typing.
5.
Add your own text expressions to T9
Add your own words to the T9 function. The T9 function comes with an extensive dictionary, but you can add your own words or abbreviations, too. Again, you may have to dig around the Options or Preferences section in the text messaging module of your phone. Once you find it, simply type and add your own special words or expressions to have them at your fingertip when you text.
Use T9 to express yourself in your own unique way!

My Samsung Seek Wont Receive Texts , From Other Numbers , But I Received One From A Sprint Holder


Ensure you have off network texts enabled by reaching Sprint. Sometimes they turn them off if you don't have texting on the phone in order to save you money
If this doesn't work you may want to talk to Sprint about replacing your phone

I have a sumsung cell phone. It came without instructions, and I have no idea what a "soft key" is. It is about 3 inches long and 2 inches wide and fold in half. I am trying to learn how to...


On a flip phone the left and right soft keys are under the display when you open the phone. We used to call them "snake eyes" back in the day. Usually they access the menus on the handset. Each of the other keys on the keypad correspond to letters of the alphabet just like the letters on your home phone. Pressing 2 key once for "a", twice for "b", etc.

While reading the text message, just try pressing the side button(used for controlling volume). It will enlarge(upper press) or decrease(downside press) the font size of that text message.

I have a Samsung cell phone Model SGH C417. It suddenly began insisting on guessing at what I'm trying to type whenever texting, and will not allow me to select the letters I wish to. I've searched all...


Sounds like you have the phone in predictive text mode. When you are on a screen that requires text, press the key with the three dots on it, It should give you 3 choices. "AEng" (ABC mode),"1Eng"(Number mode) and "T9Eng"(Predictive text,which you are already using).Choose AEng and you should be back to texting normally.
