    My wife just moved to a MT4GS. She likes the real keyboard, but wants the predictive text/suggestion/whatever that appears above the touch screen keyboard to work with the physical keyboard. I can't find an option to enable this anywhere, what am I missing? Can this be done?

    I recommend you look at some of the third party Keyboard apps. I've tried several and Swiftkey X has the best predictive text by far. There's a free trial version here:

    https://market.android.com/details?id=com.touchtype.swiftkey.phone.trial

    If you like it, you'll need to pay $3.99 for the full version.

    there is a setting for this, in Settings/Language and Keyboard/Touch Input/Hardware Keyboard Settings. i just enabled it but i haven't seen any predictive text show up yet, so i'm not exactly sure how it works... but it does seem to be an option, lol.

    If you get SwiftKey the predictive text works with the hard keyboard
