Auto Correct or Suretype... I can't turn it off!

BlackBerry 9550 – Storm2

Smartphone (3G, CDMA, Wi-Fi)

V5.0.0.320 (Platform4.2.0.124) {17}

 

I am thoroughly frustrated by trying to type on my new Blackberry Storm2.

 

Even when using the full QWERTY keyboard (either portrait or landscape) if I type “fond” the software gives me a choice of “fond” or “find.”  If I don’t choose one it corrects my typing automatically and often makes the incorrect choice.

 

I have found information on turning off Suretype and using a full QWERTY keyboard in the portrait mode but that hasn’t solved the problem!

 

Everyone says, “Get used to it” but it adds keystrokes to an already tedious typing experience.

 

HOW CAN I STOP THIS?

Re: Auto Correct or Suretype... I can't turn it off!

You want to turn OFF the PREDICTIVE input.

 

Options > Langugage > Show Text Input Options > UNcheck the Predictive.

Re: Auto Correct or Suretype... I can't turn it off!

I've tried everything that's been suggested here and nothing has worked so far.

 

I clicked OPTIONS ---> Language and Text Input 

 

The options from there are

Language -->English (United Kingdom)

                        English(United States)

 

Input Language ---> English (United States)

                                     English (United Kingdom)

 

Input Style ----> Auto Correction

                            Word Completion

 

Show Text Input Options --->  Auto Correction (check box)

 

Keyboard Layout ---->  QWERTZ

                                         AZERTY

                                         QWERTY

                                          Automatic

 

Voice Dialing Language --->  English (United States)

                                                     English (United Kingdom)

 

Name Display --->                    Last name, First name

                                                     First name, Last name

 

Enable Quick Selection --->  Yes

                                                    No

 

Language ID --->                     Automatic

                                                    Show

                                                    Hide

 

These are the ONLY options available in that screen.

 

Under SMS Text I've set Disable AutoText to YES.

Re: Auto Correct or Suretype... I can't turn it off!

I think I did it!  I checked in SMS Text Messaging and it worked although I haven't yet checked in email etc...

 

OPTIONS ---->  Language and Text Input ---> Show Text Input Options ---> UNCHECK Auto Correction

 

It seems to have done the trick!

 

Thank you!!!

Re: Auto Correct or Suretype... I can't turn it off!

I had the same problem and tried your solution..I found that you also have to uncheck the "Auto Word Learning" too.Thanks for the guidance. I was at my local Verizon store today trying to get this irritating feature turned off and all they could do was stand around looking confused and picking the was outta their ears.....(LOL)

Re: Auto Correct or Suretype... I can't turn it off!

home screen >> options >> screen / keyboard

you can set your portrait keyboard to be one among the three:

  • full QWERTY
  • SureType (QW ER TY UI OP and so on)
  • mobile phone (ABC DEF GHI and so on)
