If you've found the option to disable predictive text, why not use that option.

I don't understand your question, at this point.

the only options that are given are 'direct', 'corrective' and 'predictive'.
nothing that suggests it will turn it off...

I don't have a 9800 in front of me right now, I have had in the past. But I recall the option being there.

You will want to UNcheck the Predictive option.
