I have tried this on my Verizon HTC Touch Pro 2 and it works. The problem is that now when I try to use the colon or semicolon keys I get a backslash or slash as the result. Any way to fix this?

There is an easier way to do this.

1. Start a new message and click the keyboard icon on the screen.
2. Click the "up arrow" next to the keyboard icon on the screen (just to the right of the icon).
3. Select "Touch Input Settings"
4. Click on the XT9 Settings tab.
5. Turn on the "Word Completion in ABC mode" checkbox.
6. Click OK

done and done. :)

Still no way to turn off that irritating "Message Sent" dialog that comes up after you send a txt message though. :( booo!!!

I tried this and I also have the issue of the : ; keys being wrong. However, you should know that they do work in the "virtual Keyboard" as they should. It may be a pain, but I'm so happy I have word completion, I'll deal with it.

For those who try the easy way, if you've had word completion on a previous phone,(mine was the ATT Tilt) you know what we are looking for. If you've never had it you have no idea what your missing. Changing the "word completion in ABC mode" box won't give you what you want.

Now my question, is there a way to suggest more than one word? My Tilt would suggest up to 4.
