I'm just posting as i have done a week with the predictive text OFF and then came back to it for a week and wanted to thank who ever suggested turing the predictive text off. Sure type is pretty much dead on, predictive text can get very frustrationg.

I think that it is not clear when you get the pearl that these are two separate things. While I find that predictive text can make things much quicker when it guesses correctly, the downside is the absolute pretzel you get in once it starts guessing wrong. I initially missed the option to click on a long word rather than type it out but after a week with it off I turned it back on and it really was not fun.

There were many in here that pointed out that sure type was very good and I will have to agree with that now. After my week with it back on i was relieved to shut it off, much less back spacing and frustration.

As usual - thanx

I have been told you are doing the smart thing to turn off the Predictive Text and of course, leave on SureType.
