    Help needed with predicitive text//sms

    hi there

    i have had predictive text on my phone since i got it a few months ago.
    somehow tonight , i have managed to turn it off OR my 3 year old daughter has.
    I can not figure out how to get it back on.
    Plse can someone help.?
    Also if anyone uses this new texting that's advertised for this phone where u just skim your finger over the screen, plse can you tell me how to get it? and if it is worth getting.
    thank you

    If you mean Swype, then long press the field where you're writing, then select input method. For predictive text, go to settings-locale and text-samsung keyboard-tick XT9.

    Woaahhh!! Hold up there cowboy!!

    No need to go anywhere near recovery mode just to alter a text setting !!

    abhiraj dude, be very careful when giving out advice like that mate.

    From the home screen hit the menubutton (bottom left hand softkey) then select settings.
    Select 'Locale and Text'
    To use Swype, choose 'Select input method' and change to Swype, alternatively to use standard keyboard, select 'Samsung Keypad'.
    You can turn the predictive text on and off in the Samsung Keypad settings on the same page.

    Smile Turn on predictive text.

    to do this, on home page press the menu button (left hand side).
    Select settings
    Select Language and input

    On the keyboards and input methods make sure that goolgle voice typing and Swype settings are not ticked. then tap the icon on the right hand side of Samsung IME.

    You can then select the XT9 setting and any advanced features you wish to use.
