Ok guys have you ever had auto text issues. For instance you can type one word but it comes out something different. I noticed that this issue has been around since 4.7.148. BBC had created V7 and that's when all the complaining about auto text came up. I myself really didn't notice it until i started reading post about it. BBC created a fix and told me some other ways to solve this but i never had a accurate fix. Ive tried different cods but nothing. So the other day I was watching the typing on Storm 2 on you tube and had a thought. So i looked threw my options and seen this option for Language and text input. i always blown this option off and never really messed with it. But i have noticed that some options change when your switching firmware. So i looked threw this option and seen a tab called Input Language. So its already set on English then i scroll down and see (Show Text Input Options) opened it up and theirs several check boxes. i already had them all checked from the get go. Well theirs another section called Learn Words From Emails. This Is the fix option. By default it is set to contacts only. That's why your contacts always pop up in the predictive text. What you will need to do is to select the all message tab. After that save it and start typing. the more you type the better it will be. Also if you look in your custom dictionary you will begin to see tour word list grow. Hope this helps everyone out wit Auto text and Predictive text.
from bigdaddy2009 i believe if Disable auto text (under SMS Text) is Set to yes, those options don't appear just a auto correction option under language, input. i didn't see it, until i set the Disable auto text to no and save, then close out and come back in. Then i had all those other options.
On my phone which is running on 18.104.22.168 I had to click on Options>Language>Input Style>choose Predictive Input With Flexible Keys and then the options under Show Text Input Options appeared. Otherwise I only had one box and it was already checked. So if you don't see anything try this.
