Hello,

Just got my S3, and it's lovely. However, I'm struggling with the lack of XT9 key on the 3x4 keypad?

So, with the portrait keyboard style set as 3x4 and predictive text enabled, I can write a text with predictive text working. But, I used to be able to hold the 0-key to turn XT9 on/off.....but with my new S3 (running ICS 4.0.4) this isn't available. It appears you have to go into settings, and then toggle predictive text on/off.

Also, and more annoyingly for me, predictive text is not working at all within the browser for google searches (but it does for a friend running 4.0.3 on his S2).....

Anyone have any ideas? Am I missing a setting somewhere?  :-(

Thanks!

Have you found a solution to the problem yet?

Today I posted the same question but didn't realize until afterwards that you discover the same problem months ago.

You could try one of the alternative keyboards on the market

I actually like the Samung keyboard - the only feature missing is the toggle for T9. I tried the GO keyboard a little but really didn't care for it.

Try this trial version:

Per its FAQ: "How do I turn on T9 mode?
Go to the keyboard settings > "General Settings" > "Portrait Mode" > "T9". Note that you can define a swipe gesture to switch quickly between QWERTY and T9 modes." The gesture will provide you with the quick change you desire.

This one also allows gestures. If you can't set up a gesture to turn auto on or off perhaps the devs would consider your request - both seem to be updating regularly:

Thanks for the suggestions. I can already tell Smart Keyboard won't work for me - the video says it doesn't have the swipe feature. I'll check out #2.
