Predictive text is an 'amusing' little App that runs behind you changing everything you've typed correctly into apparently random words bearing little resemblance to what you've typed.  Usually takes at least twice as many key presses than then the non-predictive version.  Turning it off is not easy as the s/w authors think it is so funny that they hide the off setting so deep inside the menus that it takes ages to find it.

And that's with a full Qwerty keyboard. . . .  Trying using predictive with a 9 key keypad and after 50 key presses trying to text a simple message you might as well give up and just call them. 

My biggest gripe with modern Dumb-phones is there is no manual.  It's all "Intuitive" they laughingly suggest.

I knew you'd appreciate it Neil! But never argue with your SatNav - you never know if it will just dump you off the side of the dock!

I find the predictive text on my new phone, a Sony Experia Z1 Compact, to be very good, making sending a text message much quicker. It gives the option of a suggested word, or you can simply select the word you are typing, which appears in a separate little box.

You had better argue with the SatNav in my locality else it steers you to a dead end with locked gates and the roadway on the other side,  O0 O0 {-) {-) %% %%

But not funny when it happens to ambulances, so locals/patients have to say go in the opposite direction.
Life was simpler and safer with street directories :-)) :-))

When I retired so did my mobile phone, work issued, I no longer have constant interuptions nor any of this nonsense and get things done uninterrupted by the vagaries of mobiles etc and their shenanigans. O0 O0

Sweet bliss :-)) :-))

A man received the following text from his neighbour:
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I am so sorry Bob. I've been riddled with guilt and I have to
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
confess. I have been helping myself to your wife, day and night whenever you're not
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
around. In fact, more than you. I do not get it at home, but that's
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
no excuse. I can no longer live with the guilt and I hope you will
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
accept my sincerest apology with my promise that it won't, ever happen again.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Bob, anguished and betrayed, went into his bedroom, grabbed
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
his gun, and without a word, shot his wife and killed her.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
A few moments later, a second text came in:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Bloody autospell! I meant "wifi", not "wife" . . . Sorry.

RAAArtyGunner...so youre the other person that doesnt have a mobile, welcome to the exclusive club. One online retailer wanted as part of the order process that you include your mobile number and I couldnt proceed with order, so I used landline and called them , told the girl the problem, she took my order then asked for my mobile number!!!! 
Bleeding landline is enough hassle for me with all the unwanted calls, one company phoned me day after day trying to get me to install cavity wall insulation(which I already have) so in the end I invited them to call, when the rep turned up and I told him I didnt need it, he said he had travelled 40 miles and I was a ****** time waster, my response was " now you know how I feel with all your calls, no go away" or words to that effect
jenga - dont text to complain Im unreachable.......... yeah!!!!!!
