Question Samsung Galaxy S3 no "XT9" key, please help ??

I have got a new S3, but it seem to lack the 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.


On my old phone (LG Optimus 1) i could press the " XT9" key (next to 0 key) to turn predictive text on/offwhilst writing the text message

on theS3 this does not appear to be available ( ICS 4.1.1), and i have to go into settings, and then toggle predictive text on/off each time.

Can i some how get the "XT9" key back or press a diffrent key to switch between predictive text on/off, whilst writing the text message, or will i have to continue going into settings each time? thanks

I'm not quite understanding. T9 was a prediction function that was the only alternative to multi tap in the pre QWERTY days. In qwerty mode, you just need spell checking surely? Not quite sure what you're looking to achieve

My interpretation is that the OP has changed it from qwerty keyboard to the old style. I had to do that when my partners dad used my phone and was looking at getting the S3 as that's what he's used to. I haven't got my S3 any more but as far as I'm aware that is the only way to do it through the settings as described in the opening post.
