Can anyone write a text in T9 (predictive text)? - August 30th 2010, 05:20 PM

The only person I know who can use T9 is my ex boyfriend Everyone else I know just gets confused with it (like me)

Just wondering who can actually use it.

Re: Can anyone write a text in T9 (predictive text)? - August 30th 2010, 05:22 PM

I used to be able to; before I had my full keyboard phone :P
But when I first started with T9 I was super confused... You just have to get the hang of it,
it really does make things easier for you if you don't have a full keyboard.
I don't know if I could still do it though. But I doubt that I will ever have to...
Now that I've had a full keyboard I don't want to go back

I was also able to use it until I got my full keyboard phone.
I actually perfer T9 because it makes texting so much faster.

I love it. <3.

I could use predictive texting on my old phone but it would take me half an hour to write texts out because it confused me so I didn't ever use it

When I had my touch screen phone it made things a lot easier but when I'm working with buttons it just messed up all the time

Now I have a QWERTY keyboard so it doesn't really matter

Yep, I used to use it all of the time on my old mobile phone, it was so much quicker. Now I use my iPhone which is full keyboard and so I just type with that - there is no option of T9. There is this thing that completes words for you, but it annoys me.

I used to use T9 when I had a full button phone and also when I had a touch screen phone too. I found it really easy to pick up, and I was sooo fast at doing it! But now I have my iPhone which has a full qwerty so there's no need for T9.

But it's pretty easy, yeah

You can turn off the auto-complete in the settings btw! It's called auto-correction, and it's in the general > keyboard part in the settings

Yeah, I can use it. It took me a while to get use to doing it but once I got the hang of it, texting was a lot faster. It also meant that I couldn't text the other way again but I got a qwerty keyboard now so I didn't need to do it anymore.

I text fairly fast even though my phone doesn't have a full keyboard, but I think I'm going to start trying T9.. haven't used it in years though, it used to confuse me so much.

Edit - JUST started using T9 last night. I am absolutely in love with it. Makes life so much easier

i've used T9 ever since i got my first phone, it was just so much faster
now my phone has a full keyboard that slides out, but on the front screen i have a numeric keypad.
if i'm texting at work i use the front keypad and use T9, cuz i can do it with one hand and without looking

Before I got my querty keyboard, all I could use was predictive. Its simple and way quicker once you get used to it.

The only time I use text words are for things like U for you, 2 for two, too, to and I sometimes drop the odd vowel. I don't go overboard though. I only do it to save credit as I don't have to type out two texts

And yup, I used to use it for my old phone, but I've got a qwerty keyboard now.

I can, and often do use it. Sometimes I will decide to use non-t9 just for a change :P T9 is a bit faster for me, but I'm a slow texter either way

I can't use it, it drives me crazy.
It just...doesn't work! It doesn't give me the words I want. I tried to put an x at the end of a text to my friend once and it kept coming up 'yzxy' That's not even a word!

I yell at my mother for it. Seriously, I hate it. Like, come on. I taught you how to text, now can you use that grammar you were taught as a kid?!
Once I had my mother text my exgirlfriend for me while I was in the hospital. I felt like an idiot because I always use correct grammar when I text.

I have the Env3, so I've got buttons on the front and it flips open to a full keyboard. I don't use t9 and I never have. I used ABC on the front. I'm one of the only people I don't know that doesn't use t9. I do text in "proper" English, however.
