    Hey guys,

    Apparently I've accidently turned on some feature in my Optimus V, and I can't figure out how to turn it off. It is preventing me from text messaging or even typing in search boxes.

    When I press a letter key in the virtual keyboard, my screen pops up a box showing words that start with that letter. If I choose just the letter, it places spaces between each letter. ARgh. I just want it to enter the letter and it show up on the screen, not make me select from an item list.

    Does anyone know what I'm talking about and how to disable this crap? Now if I want to txt "hello", it shows up as h e l l o. So annoying!!

    I don't have any idea on what you are talking about. I never heard of that happening.

    sounds like you switched to swipe... menu - settings - language & keyboard - select input method - android keyboard.

    Just so you know, Swype was designed so you slide your fingers over the letters in a word without taking your finger off the screen and it figures out the word, or gives you a list of possible words. If you can get used to it, it really increases your typing speed.

    And also, don't be afraid to go back into settings and look around. You won't break anything.
