Entering Text

This section describes how to select the desired text input
method when entering characters into your phone. This
section also describes the predictive text entry system that
reduces the amount of key strokes associated with
entering text.
Your phone comes equipped with an orientation detector that
can tell if the phone is being held in an upright (Portrait) or
sideways (Landscape) orientation. This is useful when
entering text.
Text Input Methods
There are three text input methods available:
Google voice typing: Enter text by speaking.
Samsung keyboard (default): Samsung's on-screen
QWERTY keyboard that can be used in both portrait and
landscape orientation.
Swype: Instead of touching each key to enter text, use your
finger to trace over each letter of a word.
To change the input method, see "Keyboards and Input
Methods" on page 164.
