    Well I know this sounds dorky and geeky, but does anyone here uses the T9 dictionary on their phone

    I find my little QWERTY keyboard much easier to use and far faster.

    Will be getting the E70 next month, probably.

    (I had to think for a minute on how to spell QWERTY...)

    Yeah I use T9. It's just simpler. Sure it doesn't understand words that it should ('doesn't' being one of them) but it's still a damn sight faster than trying to text without. Also, it's readable ;)

    Every text I send I use T9. I have sent some texts that span 5 messages in the past!

    Yup. Although the Nokia's dictionary isn't as good as my old SE's. I'm having to teach it lots of new words.

    Try using it when pissed. The resulting message in your sent items in the morning is hilarious.

    I went on a road trip round Europe with two mates (in a £250 Vauxhall Carlton) we got pissed every night. One of my mates tried sending a msg and the result was:

    2 yogger big things mit ponytail tremendous. Dual it:,/

    This was over two years ago and we all remember exactly what it said because it was so damn funny. Plus we filmed every second of the holiday, dubbed 'The EuroBazz'. I even made a DVD in iMovie. :D

    Im chuckling again. Hehe

    I used T9 on my Nokia. My RAZR has that MotoTap or whatever, which is similar to T9 but slightly different. I use it whenever I text, though.

    I have to do that every time I get a new phone. I've not managed to find a way of migrating the user dictionary from one phone to another (even sticking with the same manufacturer). Anyone know how to do this? Or even how to bulk upload swear words into the dictionary?

    been using T9 for years..

    couldn't imagine a phone without predictive text input now!!

    at first, it took a while to get used to, and I hated it, but now.. total reversal :p

    What is T9? Is it like predictive text... which if yes, I do use on my RAZR. First time I used predictive texting without knowing what it was (used to tapping buttons consecutively to scroll through the letters) I was like "WTF is going on?!? Argh, damn you phone!".

    It took a while before I understood what it was doing. :)

    luv ya bunches! xoxox
