    Text Messaging: T9 or ABC mode?

    Personally, I think T9 is the stupidest thing ever. I can type a message out faster in ABC mode then if I'm trying to make the damn phone say the right word.

    Have at it.

    I voted T9 or iTap as I think it's called on my phone. Once you get good at it it's much faster than you could ever do with ABC mode

    I HATE text messaging with a passion.

    None the less, my cell phone defaults to T9 so I use that now.

    My phone also defaults to T9 and I start typing ABC out of habit and I don't realize it until 2 lines later and I don't save any time.

    I don't understand how to use it so I don't bother. I guess its supposed to 'fill in the blank' so to speak when you are texting...

    It writes the words out for you and picks the correct letters based on actual words... but I think it's weird and disturbing and I can't use it. Plus, my phone defaults to ABC, and I always use smilies, so I have to switch around into "symbols mode" anyway, so it's pointless to use T9..

    I've never heard it called T9 before, I've always called it predictive text.

    Re: Text Messaging: T9 or ABC mode?

    T9's the default for my phone and I'm pretty quick with it. Sometimes I'll end up texting nonsense though because I don't notice that it's not the word I'm trying to type out.

    Re: Text Messaging: T9 or ABC mode?

    Depends on the word. But I go with T9. Sorry.

    I wish there'd been an option for those of us who don't like texting, but who didn't really want to use the word 'losers' in reference to those who do enjoy it.

    I think you mean the other thing where it types the whole word at a time. ABC is typing the whole word out one letter at a time.

    I have to use ABC, I can't use the word thing. I'm a spazz.
