i wonder if its possible to download a tweak to change the default keyboard to a T9 keyboard like the pic above. i find this way much easier to write than the default landscape keyboard.
T9 was/is predictive typing. It used the same keypad as above, where you could change to "ABC" and have to hit the key either 1,2, or 3 times for the right letter. In T9, you only hit the number of the letter you wanted one time, and it would predict what you were going to type. If you wanted to type "Hello" for example, you would type "43556."Lol wasn't t9 the one pictured above?
Maybe I had the wrong one in mind.
you mean this one right? http://mytriniphone.com/blog/2009/02/multitap-keyboard/There used to be a T9 mod for jailbroken phones, doubt it's compatible with 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 though
An option is fine, I never learned to type T9. When I started texting I got a phone with a full keyboard right away.YES!!! T9 please!!! I don't know why there are people who support for qwerty only input for iPhone on their grandma's lives but having the T9 input as an OPTION for others who need it is really not going to inconvenience anyone!
Anyways just let market forces do the talking: if any genius who can offer T9 input as a default keyboard on the iPhone 4, I shall most gladly pay up to US$29.90 for it!
I know for certain it can be done: BAIDU input for Chinese language has succeeded in offering that through cydia & the T9 prediction with editable chinese dictionary is phenomena!!!
there is an app named FastPad that offers T9 input but it is not a default keyboard choice & u have to copy & paste again after input so it's not a true solution...
If someone is able to come up with a tweak for T9 input as an inbuilt keyboard, pls let me know: I'll gladly invest money to buy shares as I know LOADS & HORDES of iPhone owners who'd PAY BIG MONEY for iPhone T9 input without having to copy & paste, & with editable dictionary!!
let the money do the talking!!! let's all either profit &/or benefit from this much awaited T9 tweak!!!
