Let's make sure you've done it correctly.
From your homescreen, follow Options>Typing and Language>Typing. Beside Style, set it to Direct then press the menu key and select Save.
If you've followed those steps, then remove your battery while your phone is powered on and replace it again.
I hope that helps you.

In 7.1 for the Torch 9850 the option of Direct is not given. Is there a way to turn it off in 7.1?
I'm using 7.1 on the Torch 9860 (which is similar to the 9850) and Direct is an option. The version of 7.1 that you've downloaded must be different.
