    You guys have tried using t9 predictive text feature on your cell phone? I find it a lil bit fuzzy atfirst but after checking the tutorial site it does really makes sense, pretty cool indeed.

    Ya my Sony K800i has t9, works a treat!

    It's a little different to the Nokia predictive text that I was used to, but now I'm used to it I have no problems at all!

    Quick texting ahoy!

    my ex bf uses it.

    one night he sent me a text that was supposed to say:

    message me later if you want to go out tonight.


    instead he accidently chose the wrong word and it read:

    message me later if you want to in out tonight. :bone:
    :lol: in out! i loled.

    T9 is one of the best thing to ever happen to cell phones!

    you just type the word using each key once, for instance you would key in: 6453 to spell out MIKE, instead of having to hit certain keys multiple times, like: 6-444-55-33

    It doesn't sound like much, but once you start using it, it rocks!

    WHAT?????????

    I thought everybody used t9. I dont even know anyone who calls it t9. We just say predictive text and yes, there are a few funny mistakes like going out for a neck (meal) and saying you foot on (dont no). But i thought it was normal. I'm with apples here.

    What about those phones that fold out into a QWERTY keyboard?

    Predicitve texting is cool for me. I usually text all the time. I think some phone models has available languages other than English well mine has. It took me some time to get use to it but I love it now.
