Texting on mobile / cell phones - Predictive or Manual?

Why?

If you use QWERTY on your phone, then what would you use if your phone DIDN'T have a QWERTY keypad?

Manual with a qwerty keyboard because I'm a fearless bastard.
I shall grant you three wishes.

None of which will work.


Does the above post enrage, offend or confuse you?

Good.

manual.

because when i try to warn a friend about a tsunami, it predicts to 'truman g'

it also doesn't know how to spell a lot of things like bildungsroman, and it just generally doesn't have a very wide variety of words.

edit^ to the above, there are predictive text funcions on qwertys too, like iphones, which is what i'm referring to

Because my predictive texting is a Jehovah's Witness and doesn't approve of all my cursing. Every time I try to say ****, it says fun. Every time I try to say douchebag, it says dirt bike.

Manual.

Anyone using predictive can't make up their own words and are slaves to the dictionary.

Predictive.
It's quicker, especially seeming I don't text in the modern way: cutting every word in half and not using vowels, so using predictive text is just quicker.

I do however change to manual when writing swears or invented words.

Before I had QWERTY I used predictive. If I use the touchscreen QWERTY I also use predictive, but if I use the keypad then it's manual automatically.

Manual every day, but currently on crappy predictive cos my replacement phone has the tiniest buttons going
#16
Predictive, i'm not as fast with manual and I never really got into it. I don't really type much either nowadays, my phone predicts the next word too.

Fancy that, my conversations are so dull that my phone can predict what i'm going to say.

predictive. using it right now as this txt is coming from my android. qwerty keyboard but it predicts the most likely word based on the keys around where you tap. so you can basically touch type. this took me very little time to write with only one typo.

predictive is the way to go. It's pretty accurate, and even if it doesn't get a word right, I can easily corrent hit.
plus my average for hitting the right keys when typing on the first try is below 50%. So sometimes i manage to fumble out a word like hbabdbf and it still makes Kebab for me. really handy.

I have a blackberry so I use manual.. but on my old phones that had the regular numbers I always used predictive. It is so much quicker.
#22
Predictive got much better when I added **** and ****** to its dictionary.
i don't know why i feel so dry

When I'm using my iPod it's predictive (I'm using it right now) and it fixes a lot of mistakes I make by typing quickly. I like it.

On my phone I have a QWERTY that also fixes misspellings and punctuation, does that count as predictive?

If I didn't have my QWERTY Id use manual. I hate t9 and all that jazz. I'm a fast typed no matter what device I'm on.
#26
i have an iPhone with auto correct what soed that count as because sometimes it predicts the word but not always

My old phone added new words that you typed in automatically. I gave it to a friend of mine, custom dictionary and all, and now they run away whenever they see me.

I now use Andriod Swype, a QWERTY keyboard where you slide your finger over the letters you want and the word comes up. It takes a bit of getting used to but it's pretty speedy.

It seems to be the borderline illiterate who can't handle predictive. The T9 system just can't cope with really bad spelling.

QWERTY keyboard, ftmfw. When I had my old flip phone it was predictive though. 1,000,000x faster

Used to use manual when I first got my phone
I then discovered predictive my accident...and stuck with predictive ever since
I can now text with one hand

Predictive. I used to use manual, until someone laughed and then taught me how to use T9 without wanting to smash my phone. Now T9 is my best friend.
