Keypad & Typing

Use your keypad to type letters, numbers, and special characters.



  1. ACCESS KEYBOARD: From a text entry option, select the Keyboard icon.
    Note: When replying to an email or sending a text message, you have multiple text entry options including Handwriting, T9 Word, Emojis, S Voice and Quick Message.

    Note: You can only draw one letter at a time.

  3. WRITE WITH T9 WORD: T9 ("Text on 9 keys") allows words to be entered by a single keypress for each letter, as opposed to the multi-select approach used in conventional mobile phone text entry, in which several letters are associated with each key, and selecting one letter often requires multiple keypresses. It combines the groups of letters on each device key with a dictionary of words. From the Handwriting keyboard, rotate the bezel to the right. Select the desired key for each letter of the word. If the desired word does not appear, swipe left on the Suggestion bar to scroll to the desired word then select the desired word.  
    Note: Predictive text is disabled by default. To enable Predictive text, from the clock screen press the Power/Home button > rotate the bezel to and select the Settings icon > Input > Keyboard settings > Smart typing > select Predictive text > select the Predictive text circle.
