    Disable Predective SureType in OS 4.5

    Advertisement



    Hi all! Haven't been in these forums in a while, but my wife's Pearl was starting to freeze randomly when opening messages, exiting menus, etc.. so I decided it was time to upgrade the OS and clean things up.

    In doing so, she went from 4.2 to 4.5. While this is generally a good thing, the only issue I'm having is that the random freezing is still occurring and now there is this drop down box and a predictive type auto text thing when she's texting.

    So my questions are these:

    1. How do I stop that drop down box during typing? Is there any way to go back to the old SureType (circa OS 4.2)?

    2. Any idea what might be the cause of the freezing for two or three seconds? It happens when she tries to open an SMS, send an SMS or even open the Inbox. She doesn't use e-mail or the browser and she has plenty of free RAM. In fact, there is hardly anything installed on the phone at all.

    Thanks in advance!
