How do I turn off Auto-Text for SMS, MMS, Emails & Instnt Msgng?

Hi everyone,

 

Does anyone know how I can turn off Auto-Text on emails, sms, mms & online instant messaging programs?? I usually type in shorthand (words w/o vowels, acronyms, etc) for quicker messages...especially with this phone's poor sure click/touch screen technology.

 

However, every time I try shorthand, the auto-text suggestion pops up & there's no other choice but to select whatever word comes up. Its really getting irritating. :~/

You have three things happening on the 9500 in portrait mode... Autotext, Predictive Text, and SureType.

 

For Autotext, you just need to delete all entries. I don't know of a way to turn it on and off.

 

Predictive Text - go to Options > Language > Input Options > and UNcheck Predictive Input. Likewise, there, you can turn off the Spellchecker Variants.
