    Spidersweb, the auto text and predictive text are different things and have settings for both.

    I noticed that in the older OS's the newest text was always at the top of the screen and with threaded texting the newest is always at the bottom of the screen, being that .230 is still beta software it makes sense that RIM hasnt changed the software to incorperate the new style of texting yet! I am sure they will eventualy! As for the predictive text do this, posted by chris from ny at crackberry! Options>language and text input. Change word completion to auto correct. Problem solved. Word will auto correct in this mode. To turn off auto correct go to option>spell check and uncheck auto correct. that's all there is to it. Enjoy guys.

    But the one thing everyone seem to forget when giving this advice is the phone has to b in landscape, for some reason the option for text input doesn't display when in portrait, one of the many things about the storm os lol.

    It doesn't show in portrait mode because it uses suretype, which needs the predictive text to work correctly, while in landscape you get a full keyboard meaning that you don't necessary need the predictive text.

    Hope that make sense

    sometimes when i swipe it goes all the way to the top and i have to end up scrolling all the way back down to see the current message. i have also noticed sometimes a text gets put up in the middle of the threadmfg: kinda weird.
