Default still no answer on suretype issue

Please Login to Remove!

I was told with my at&t pearl that the sure type is "smart" and learns the words you use alot, as well as the more common words you use to make typing easier, and i feel this was true,
NOW with my sprint pearl 2 i feel like its "dumb". not only does it not recognize the same words i use over and over again, but sometimes is will just not let me type the word i want. it will try to spell everything else including letters that do not even form words....on top of that the most annoying thing is when i have to type a letter, space, letter, space, letter, space, letter, space, than go back and backspace the letters together. im wondering if there is somethin with my language pack? i checked and its set to english english, not united kingdom or what not. im out of options at this point, anyone else have this issue or have a fix for it?

how long have you had this pearl? You probely need to give it time and it will learn how you write. I went from a curve to a pearl and i really dont feel like my pearl got to where i wanted it to be until maybe week 4 or 5. plus i added a lot of words to my custom dictionary. I love it now!

Look in Options and see if you have AutoText. Then see if you have a Custom Dictionary. Then look under Language and Scroll down to Input Options. You should have all the options checked. You can play with turning Predictive Text on and off. Personally, I turn it off, since it tends to suggest the wrong word more often than not.
