Typing without Predictive Text


Predictive text can be turned off in Keyboard settings, and in some applications, predictive text is not available. In these cases, touch the key with the letter on it that you need, and quickly touch it again until it displays the letter you require. For instance, touch abc once for a, twice for b, or three times for c.
