    Like the title suggests, I have an issue with text prediction correction
    I'm using a, purchased in Japan, Sharp IS03 running 2.2.1
    Don't know if it's relevant or not but I'm also running a 3rd part launcher but pretty sure the issue's been there even with the stock launcher.

    My first 3rd party KB was the Steven lin 2.3 kb, works flawlessly in all aspects, prediction, correction etc
    Try to input text in my stock mail app, no prediction/correction. WHY?
    Tried other keyboards all seemed to have the same issue, all their features work fine in any input field other than the stock mail app.

    In the end I settled down with Smart Keyboard pro, by far the most user friendly keyboard and everything works perfectly except, in the standard portrait mode with standard qwerty; prediction, etc doesn't appear, change it to compact qwerty with T9, works fine and is brilliant.
    But why is this? Not all of the apps can suffer from the same fault so I've pinned it down to being something Android 'or my phone' related.

    One thing I will mention is that with some of the keyboards in Std Portrait qwerty mode, if I go on typing long enough, the prediction etc will suddenly spring to life and then disappear again a couple of words later....

    So I'm really at my wits end and don't know where to look next.

    I'm sorry if this is long and drawn out and I appreciate anyone kind enough to read it and perhaps share any insight on this issue
    Any help would be appreciated

    Cheers

    Sorry, I just realised this is an introduction forum.
    I'm sorry about the huge post.

    Anyways, my name's Craig, I live and work in Japan.
    Currently using a Japanese Sharp IS03 with 2.2.1 and it's been great except with trying to find a keyboard that works.

    Nice to meet you all
