auto complete text

Does the 8330 curve have auto complete in texting? If so where/how do you activate the function? I'm not wanting the auto text (which fixes spelling errors) but some function that completes words after only a couple of letters are typed in. Thanks

Re: auto complete text

Regular cell phones generally have the T9 Predictive input. The Pearl has suretype but I guess because the curve has a full keyboard they assume we don't need it. When I first got me BB I wanted this function too but you get used to it. Same as typing on your PC.

While the 8330 does not have predictive text, you can add auto text features which can enable you to type a couple letters, press the space bar and it will complete your chosen work.  For example I type....wrud press the space bar and "What are you doing?" is spelled out.  Just go to options>auto text>menu key (left of trackball)>new and add what abbreviation you want.

Hope this info helps.
