We have had an awful lot of people ask us this and in a nutshell there is no way you can switch of Predictive text on the Motorola ES400. However there are a couple of solutions to this we discuss right here.
It’s all down to a registry key and despite not being implemented in the OS, the ES400 does have the registry key that you can use to turn predictive text functionality on or off.
Use a Windows Mobile remote registry application to open up the registry on the Motorola ES400. Then browse to:
HKLU -Control Panel – SIP
Change the SuggWords Key word to 0 to switch off, or 4 to switch back on. The original value seems to be 4 but we found that 1 also worked to switch it on.
Works for us a dream!
For those of you that find registries and tweaking semi rugged PDA’s a little bit confusing then we can supply 2 CAB files that you simply copy to your ES400, run the one called ON to switch T9 on, Run the 1 called OFF to switch it off! Simple!
Give us a shout in the comments below or email us and we’ll send you the CABs.
