Default Sure Type

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone know if you can disable sure type when typing out an email? Drives me nuts when the words they think your typing keep popping up.

Thanks

Yeah I did that but when I'm in portrait mode it still does it when I'm typing out a message.

Then you must not be speaking of SureType.

This is driving me insane as well. If this isn't suretype, then its autotext or autocomplete or something. This started after I installed the .328 OS.

Whenever I type sms or mail messages, this black horizontal bar appears in the text field and displays 5-6 different words that i might be trying to type. I can't find the menu to get rid of it - How do we get rid of this crap? I hope someone can help.

Options. Language and Text Input. Input Style -- default is Word Completion. Change to Auto Correction. (only other option)

thanks, TXlady, that is Word Completion. I like it, it works great for me.

If you type fast enough, you never see the word completion.
If I slow down, I see it.
And, when I get to a word I am not sure about spelling on, it usually has it suggested if I can correctly entered the first 3-5 letters.

Nice! That helped a lot. I hated that word completion. It only helped when I typed something ridiculous and long.
