    This isn't the answer you're probably looking for but check out 'AnySoftKeyboard' from the apps market. It's a keyboard pretty similar to the default Android one but feels/works a lot better I think.

    It has all the usual bells and whistles like predictive text, easy access to smilies :) and a dictionary that you can add words to on the go (by holding down the word you want from the list that appears).

    Getting back to your original question: Have you had a look in the keyboard settings to see if predictive text is switched on?

    Settings->Locale & Text->TouchPal

    Thanks for the reply! the qwerty keyboard predictive text works fine. it's just the normal phone predictive text. numbers around the outside work, but when i press a letter, the message just closes up, shuts down and will not let me type anything in.

    Been to T mobile store and they say wait for an update because its new, but thats just a rubbish answer to fob me off, as it was working perfectly fine before!!

    That looks like the problem i was having. Thanks for the reply.

    I ended up demanding that they swap my handset for a new one in the shop, as i'd only had it a few weeks. So they did!

    However, reading this article, i can imagine that it will probably happen again, so at least i know what to do next time!

    cheers! :D
