Can the keyboard match contact names?

Modified on Tue, 21 Nov, 2023 at 11:24 AM

Yes, the T9 and touch QWERTY keyboard can match contact names while typing. For example, let’s say that you have a contact stored and he has a nickname like “Yitzy”. The normal T9 predictive text will never be able to suggest non-standard words on it’s own. But with the help of reading contacts, it works beautifully!

However, this does bring up a very legitimate privacy concern: What exactly is the keyboard doing with the contacts? The answer is that the T9 predictive text function is 100% offline and there is no sharing of that information with any other devices or computers. The only purpose for it is to populate the dictionary and make spelling all those cool names using T9 predictive text fast and easy!
