When txting the "show suggestions" option is still working even after I have disabled it in settings. Is there another setting I'm missing to help disable that? It's getting rather annoying & I can't figure out how to fix it. Help!!

There are two different methods when typing. The methods are listed below.
Text Input Methods
Your phone offers two text input methods:
• Swype: Swype is a new text input method that allows you to enter
words by gliding your finger over the virtual QWERTY keyboard, lifting
your finger between words. You can also enable Word prediction,
which matches your key touches to common words.
• Android Keyboard: The Android Keyboard is a virtual QWERTY
keyboard that allows you to enter text by touching keys on the screen.
Android Keyboard includes predictive text, which matches your key
touches to common words so that you can select the word to enter it
into your text.
Changing the Input Method
When entering text, you can select the text input method.
Touch and hold on a text input field, then select an input
method:
• Swype
• Android keyboard

The OP was not asking how to change the input method but rather how to turn off the predictive text. The answerer you supplied was no help at all to the OP. Version needs to take a close look at who the have monitoring these forums because from what I can tell, most of the responses from the wireless employes are a joke and no help at all as shown in the above response.
