N73 Predictive Text

Hi Folks,

Im a new user on this forum , Ive just recieved my new N73. Been reading lots of interesting bits and pieces on here.

I wonder if anyone can help me , Im probably doing something stupid but...

Ive switched the fone to predictive text as in the manual. When writing a text however, the fone does not give me a list of words to choose from as I type... the only way I can choose a word is by pressing the pencil key , choosing predicitve text, then matches.

Can anyone tell me how to make it automatically give me choices as in the manual ?

I do really like the fone except the one big thing that seems to annoy everyone - that keypad is awful. Its so hard to use, Im a big texter and its making me think of selling.

Thanks
Rory

To have sure You have predictive text, on screen must be two lines and abc after.
About the keyboard, yes, I agree, is little, but is like that and canīt be changed.

Ah ok I was being really stupid I didnt know you can press * to cycle through the choices.

It still doesnt automatically come up with suggestions for words however like it says in the manual.

changing the order of predicted words????

Ok so my T9 dictionary on my N73 works awesome. But 1 thing, is there a way to change the order of words that the T9 dictionary predicts?

For instance, I usually type in 2255 and "Call" is the first word that comes up because its the most common. but 1 time I typed in 2255 and because I wanted "BBJK" to come up, I "spelled" it out and put it in the dictionary of the T9 so it will be a part of the dictionary.
(BBJK is a common abbreviation i use for something)

Obviously I use the word "Call" more often but everytime I type in 2255, "BBJK" comes up first. I wanted to know if it's possible to change the order, so "Call" comes up as the first word and "BBJK", comes up as the second option?

I have done this for many words so I really need help with this feature please!

thanks!
