Does anyone know how to turn off the auto-complete feature when texting?
Sometimes I just want to text and not have my device try and tell me what I'm thinking. Other times this is OK, but I just want to turn off the autocomplete sometimes.
I looked in the phone settings (not very hard I guess...) and I didn't really see anything to allow this.
Anyone know how this is done?
I am using a Droid X.
The following works for me on an HTC Incredible. Hopefully your settings are similar.
Settings > Language & Keyboard > Touch Input > Text Input > Prediction. You should be able to un-check Prediction.
I have a Nexus S with 4.0.4 and i have turned off Settings/Language and Input/Spelling correction, but when writing SMSes it still corrects me. Then found another settings: Settings/Language and Input/ Android keyborad -> press settings button next to this, then down you have show correction suggestion (i'm turing it to always hide)
For HTC One VX
Settings > Language & Keyboard > HTC Sence Input> Advance Settings > (turn off) Word Prediction.
For a Galaxy Note 3 Go to settings -> controls -> language and input, Click Samsung keyboard settings icon, deactivate auto replacement
I knew I had turned it on (autotype/autocorrect/word predict) since I first got my phone, but could not figure out how to turn it off, until now.
On my Samsung Galaxy S, I use an Android keyboard. There are keyboard options and typing options for the phone under settings in the app area, but none of those will change the features of the keyboard itself.
These features are accessed from the keyboard, on the bottom line (as it appears when you first start to type). There is a settings button (looks like a cog or a sprocket) next to the "Go" button. You will find all the necessary settings you seek to turn on or off all features that your keyboard does automatically.
on the galaxy s4 you can turn off the "predictive " text by going to settings in your apps. Settings...Language and keyboard. Hit settings (cog wheel) then turn off "predictive " text.
Found it in Android, in Settings - Locale and Text - AutoComplete. You can still use the word suggestions bar since that is toggled separately.
As of 10/20/2014 for Android OS. Go to Settings / My Device / Language and input. Click the Settings icon for Samsung Keyboard. You will see Auto Replacement there with other items.
Turn off tracing. This makes it impossible to disable the prediction part because they use same software bits. Then disable the prediction.
I have a Samsung Galaxy Glide. The predictive text feature can be shut of by doing the following:
