Unhappy Predictive text input problem...app??? :(

Please Login to Remove!

Hey all,

First time poster. ;) I recently got my Bold 9000 from AT&T, and I LOVE the device. I've had numerous Treo's, a BlackBerry Curve, along with a few other PDA's before getting this superb "can-do-it-all" smartphone.

I am only missing ONE functionality from the Palm OS, and from Windows Mobile, and that is the predictive text input, which I relied on heavily. What's ironic about it is the fact that both the Pearl as well as the Storm have it.

I know the argument is that it's a QWERTY device, so it's not needed, etc., but there are a lot of other QWERTY phones, including even the BlackBerry Storm, which has a full keyboard when turned on its side that do have this feature.

Can ANYONE PLEASE help me with this?? I want to say that I saw an application for it, but I can't find it anymore. I may have been wrong, though. If someone knows of an application that helps me with this, I'll but it immediately!!

One more thing. Just today, I was installing some apps, and a curious screen appeared where it said "BlackBerry Fast Predictive Input Method Library" was going to be removed, along with three languages, which I hadn't remembered leaving on the device. Please view the pic to see what I mean.



So...is there hope that I might be able to get this to work after all!??! Texting, emailing, etc. is just SO MUCH faster when you don't have to type every single word out every single time. I also don't understand why it was being removed. : :

Thanks a lot everyone!

I was actually planning on making a thread like this today. I also have the same question and also why is it that lately everytime that I connect the BB to the PC it always wants to update the 4.6 core applications making the process take a long time.

I have had exactly the same problem as you when synchronizing my AT&T BlackBerry Bold 9000 OS v4.6.0.167 with Desktop Manager (DM) 4.7. I have set-up two Bolds and found that once a Bold has been synchronized with DM 4.7 it will continue to prompt the user to update the Danish, Swedish and Norwegian languages every time regardless of whether one uninstals DM 4.7 and installs DM 4.6 and/or wipes the device. Trying to update these languages will result in DM deleting the "BlackBerry Fast Predictive Input Method Library". I do not understand why would a Bold have the "Fast Predictive Input Method Library" since "SureType", to my knowledge, is only supposed to be available with the Pearl. However, the Bold that only has been synchronized with DM 4.6 has not shown these problems.
