I'm not going to reconfigure, (as I probably wouldn't be able to get it back again). Could you tell us what it says?

No that would not be any fun at all !!

Is it just me or is T9 the most useless function on earth for phones?

I never figured out how to use it. My PDA (Pocket PC) has an easy word completion thingy. I could never figure it out on the phone though. It types all sorts of unrelated words...

I am not the best at techno thingies but I gotta agree, you start out typing a word and it ASSUMES you want another different one and you have to type manually anyway, don't get it. It is however highly possible that I am not using T9 properly, that has occured to me! :D

you ain't - I'll show you for a beer ;)

I think predictive text is great- once you get the hang of it. Saves you tons of time and stops you developing "tetris thumb" through overtexting.

strange enough

I absolutely love predictive text thingy :)

I remember I sent 1642 texts within one month. Once. 2 years ago. And that's a confession :D

I suppose T9 works differently in mobiles and handhelds. T9 in my Siemens is absolutely great! And it can learn new words...
