    Go to language & keyboard then turn off trace keyboard first in touch input settings then you can turn off prediction in text input settings.

    I just tried the suggestion munguse posted, and it does work. Initially, if you just try to turn off prediction, it is grayed out, but if you follow those steps, it works. To repeat what munguse suggested:

    Settings > Language & keyboard > Touch Input. (Touch the settings button to the right.)

    Select Trace keyboard from the list. Uncheck Trace keyboard. Go back.

    Select Text input from the list. You can now uncheck Prediction.
