I know you guys are mostly familiar with the T9 feature on your mobile phones. My being lazy to learn,made me used to texting with the multi-tap system until I tried T9 (its the Dictionary mode on my nokia phone) i think its much faster only i dont know how to use it properly as sometimes i commit some errors.Any tips on how to use this feature?

No idea what that is and I don't text ... I call people and speak to them directly. If I want something in text I e-mail. However being 38 might have something to do with it.

Hell, I'm only 25.

I just hate the intrusion of phones in general. Write me a letter, I'll read it when I want to. If I remember and I like you enough, I'll write you back.

T9 is a brilliant invention for me.The only thing that hinders most users is lack of knowledge on how to use it correctly.are there any sites for this? tutorials or games perhaps?

I fail to see the difficulty. Press the buttons in the right order. If there's more than one possibility, scroll to it and click.

What exactly do you want to know?

Oh dear God I hate predictive text. I can't use it to save my life. My sister on the other hand is a pro at it.

Let's say you want to text the word "hello" on your phone. All you would have to do is hit the buttons that have those letters and it would guess you were trying to say hello since that is the most common word used with the 12 letters that correspond with the 4 numbers you've hit.

I'm usually pretty smart when it comes to electronics but I think I'll try to stick to the basics and talk to people. Thanks for the info Eric.

Texting can be useful at times though.like when you just wanna say hi to friends! T9 makes it even more faster to text on my mobile phone than using the multi-tap.

People are too lazy to type their damn messages out properly now??? soon we will think it and it will be done. I wonder why theres a rise in obesity all of a sudden.

Obesity may be rising, but people have very muscular and agile thumbs. Strangely, this seems to be causing problems in some because the thumb did not evolve with such a load and is being put under stress from all of these new movements, leading to circulation problems and the like.

I rarely text. I just can't be bothered when it's usually easier to call.

On an (even more) off topic side note, I've just installed Firefox 2, and this inline spellchecker is fantastic!

Predictive text is great for me and really helps me when creating messages. I can't stand messages that have uncomprehendable abbreviation in it. I used to practiced at this site www.t9.com, very helpful indeed.

Trans: you think text speak is bad? try ????, and if you know what the hell im saying you need to go outside more often.

How's that? couldnt work out one word, but the rest is an educated guess anyway.

What the hell is that Crab? i dont even think my keyboard can make those characters

A buddy of mine was talking about it in the lunch room during break so showed me. Who would a thought a grown man would do this stuff but yup, I was surprised. He likes it because it always costs the same and you don't have to worry about long distance fees. I now can see a positive side to text messaging though I'm not going to jump right out there and do it.

Text messaging costs me more. If somebody sends me one I have to pay 10 cent. Even if I didn't want it!! What type of [censored] is that?

I had this done to me as well Joel and it was from my own provider. I have had them cancel this feature and I made them credit me the $0.20 they charged me for it. I'm anal about that kind of stuff. My bank really likes me and know not to cheat me out a few cents as I'll know.
