Predictive text function on Nokia 1600

For some reason the predictive text function on my phone isn't working any more. It no longer recognises very common words [like "see", "were" and "the"] and tries to replace them with random letters like "qfd". Any advice greatly appreciated, it's doing my head in. Have done the usual technophobe solutions to it, including switching it on and off, taking the battery out and hitting it.

    Predictive text is off & I cannot find an option to turn it back on. I have tried everything. When I go to the predictive text & the instructions, it states to use the # key, but that doesn't work. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

I figured it out. Default to settings didn't help. I had to go to change the language & put it back to English, which restored predictive text.

Samsung Genio touch: The predictive text often makes up words as the first choice. e.g. On't - not, ar - as, Rm - so, Ger - her. Is there any way to delete these words from the dictionary as it is very...


I don't think you can delete words. However, if you re-enter the word you most want to appear first in predictive text by the 'add word' facility (even if the word you want is already there further down on the scroll menu) it will then become the first suggestion. So if you're always getting 'Gs' instead of 'it' simply re-enter 'it' in 'add word' (watch the case) and you'll get 'it' first. Get it.

Samsung SGH-c225 predictive text malfunction


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".
