    Predictive text differs from phone to phone, some allow you to add to the dictionary and some don't.

    Predictive text has allowed me to add to the dictionary since like, '97 o.O

    (Okay, maybe not '97 as i'd have been like, 7, but definitely around 2001-2)

    Well i've gone from cheapo phones, standard phones to smart phones, nokia, samsung, sony ericsson, HTC, etc. I'm almost definite it's a standard feature, unless you can show me otherwise? How it actually 'predicts' what you're gonna say is probably more variable however (i know you can download an android dictionary that learns how you type, and in some cases has actually written a whole message for me lol! Not sure about iphones, though i know you can add to the dictionary)

    For some odd reason, i know a lot about phones. I think it comes with being forgetful :p:

    Do you mean you have always been able to manually add to the dictionary?

    Oh, possibly then. I meant add whenever you use it in the body of your text. I don't know a great deal about phones tbh.

    My phone has started making things into words I actually use that aren't in a dictionary. It used to constantly turn 'kk' into 'ok' and now it doesn't bother.

    I have a pretty new phone so it registers anything I use in the dictionary and then, AFAIK, chooses the most common thing I could be trying to say. I t works okay

    Okay guys, I need some help. I need something new to watch.

    I have been watching tonnes of cartoons recently and I have completely watched all Dragonball episodes and Avatar: Last Airbender. I need another cartoon/anime to watch. Any suggestions?

    If you've never watched them then I thoroughly recommend Alec Guinness's portrayal of George Smiley in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, and Smiley's People. Fantastic series and there's not much that need be said about Guinness and his acting.

    That isn't an anime/animation/cartoon though is it?
