    Default Text from his neighbour

    -
    I am so sorry Bob. I've been riddled with guilt and I have to confess.
    I have been tapping your wife, day and night when you're not around.
    In fact, more than you. I have not been getting any at home, but that's no excuse.
    I can no longer live with the guilt and I hope you will accept my sincerest apology with my promise that it won't happen again.

    The man, anguished and betrayed, went into his bedroom, grabbed his gun, and without a word, shot his wife and killed her.

    A few moments later, a second text came in : Damn autocorrect! I meant "wifi" not "wife".

    Lol...Thank God a while ago I decided to turn off my predictive writing!!!!! My "dumb" thumbs made a major contribution to those "encrypted" messages of mine!

    Well, you're way more advanced than I am Frank. I don't even try to text with my thumbs. I use my right index finger and still make mistakes, partly because my other fingers often get involved and tap some unintended key or the screen. I can't possibly type and look at the screen at the same time so I'm always sending something that predictive writing decided for me. You can turn it off!? I'll have to see if I can figure out how to do that.

    Hi Vicente,


    that wasn't me in the previous reply.
    My fingers seem too big, let alone my thumb !
    I hardly ever use SMS texting
    and now having seen the obvious dangers …
    I want to keep my wife alive!

    Cheerio !
    Frank.

    Sure! Let me tell you that you have the chance to either Google it or look it up in YouTube where you have several friendly and short videos to show you how to do it, surely for all different phone brands, devices and models. Here's one I used when changing the setting in my Samsung 8+ . Enjoy it! (and get rid of that annoying predictive writing! )

    Cool! I have a Samsung ( S4, a little older than yours) and that little video solved the problem.

    Thanks Gentle

    You're welcome! Settings shouldn't be that different from one version to the other. ;-) Sorry I can't help you solve the other issue we both seem to share: Our drumstick fingers! Lol
