The What Mobile forum is back open for business!

Hello to all fellow mobile technology lovers,

We realise this forum has been dormant for quite some time and today we begin our long task of reviving it!

We urge you all to come back and start posting again. Mods will be back in full force and the banhammer will be used to filter out the horde of spambots parading through our digital streets.

As the new moderators and staff here at What Mobile magazine, we have made it our duty to reinvent this into the once-bustling forum that is used to be.

Enjoy the rest of your week and we look forward to getting things moving again.

Thomas Wellburn and Joanna Tatum

  • t9 predictive text on w810i

    Hi, can someone please tell me how t9 works on this phone?

    I'm a longtime nokia user who's had a samsung e720 for the last year (never again, appaling sound quality both speaker and mike) and the predictive text never remembers what settings you chose, or let you input new words!

    The only positive i can take from the samsung is that instead of nokia's system, i'm now used to pressing * to change between t9 on/off, 0 for new words, and # for a space.

    From reading the w810i manual it looks like * and # do the same thing, but please tell me that 0 changes word? i'm really hoping that i don' thave to use the joystick to select a word each time!

    The # button puts in a space between words and the * button allows you to select capital letters followed by lower case,capitals only or lower case only.You do have to use your rocker control to scroll down the list of words but have noticed on mine the most commonly used ones find their way to the top of the list.

    Hope this helps.

    Give it a couple of weeks and you'll wonder how you ever got by without a SE.

      Hi, don't worry about getting used to the d pad to scroll through the word you want. I was a long time samsung user and I managed to get used to it in a matter of hours! It's really easy to use, all the words that need spelling are entered into "my words" and like someone said before the common words you use find their way to the top of the list. It also remembers that you've put T9 on and will automatically put a capital letter after a full stop (which my d500 didn't)
