    Predictive Text?

    Go into a message like you are typing a new one. On the left or right soft key, they should be "options" - select that. When in the options menu, look for "typing options", "writing options", or something related to the dictionary. It is in there that you should be able to turn the dictionary on or off, which enables or disables predictive text.

    Trying to get predictive text of messaging

    When texting, press AND hold the * button. The display a the top right of the screen should change from T9Ab to Abc. Press (but don't hold) the * button again, the display will change to ABC. Press (but don't hold) the * button again, the display will change to abc. Press (but don't hold) the * button again, the display will change to 123.

    The skill is pressing the * button and sometimes holding for a second longer. It requires PRACTICE. Try it for yourself.

    First, hit the 'Message' button in the upper-left -hand corner. Select 'New Message'. Select 'New Short Msg'. An empty screen for inserting text will now be displayed. At this point press the top middle button (the one with the line on it like this -). Now the 'Message Menu' should be displayed. Scroll down to 'Entry Setup' & select it. Press the 'Change' button in the upper-right-hand corner when 'Primary Setup' is highlighted. Scroll down to 'TAP English' and select it. Now you are done. ('I TAP English is the setting for predivtive'. 'TAP English is the setting for manual').

    The text dictionary keeps giving me the wrong words and i cant change, how do you knock it off. the phones a samsung d900i

    Using T9 mode
    T9 is a predictive text input mode that allows you to
    key in any character using single keystrokes.
    Entering a word in T9 mode
    1. Press [2] to [9] to start entering a word. Press
    each key once for each letter.
    For example, press [4], [3], [5], [5], and [6] to
    enter HELLO in T9 mode.
    T9 predicts the word that you are typing, and it
    may change with each key that you press.
    2. Enter the whole word before editing or deleting
    3. When the word displays correctly, go to step 4.
    Otherwise, press [0] to display alternative word
    choices for the keys that you have pressed.
    For example, OF and ME use [6] and [3].
    4. Press [ ] to insert a space and enter the next
    Other T9 mode operations
    • Press [1] to enter periods or apostrophes
    • Press [ ] to change case. Lower case (No
    indicator), Initial capital ( ), and Capital lock ( )
    are available.
    • Press [ ] to insert a space.
    • Press the Navigation keys to move the cursor.
    • Press [C] to delete characters one by one. Press
    and hold [C] to clear the display.
    Adding a new word to the T9 dictionary
    This feature may not be available for some languages.
    1. Enter the word that you want to add.
    2. Press [0] to display alternative words for your key
    presses. When there are no more alternative
    words, Spell displays on the bottom line.
    3. Press <Spell>.
    4. Enter the word you want using ABC mode and
    press <OK>.

    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,
    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.
