He probably had one of those EZ text entry modes so he probably only had to type one number per letter, plus maybe a few zeroes to cycle through ambiguous matches.

Hmm, could be. I kind of dislike T9 though I guess it does encourage full words without too many abbreviations. Wonder what the full T9 dictionary looks like...there's a PDF claiming to be a dictionary but it's just a glossary of abbreviations.

yeah i tend to use t9 in my txt messages, but i wish it would learn what words i use... it default puts in "of" everytime i'm trying to write "me" and i don't think i've ever wanted to say "of" in a txt. "in" for "go" is another one. oh, and it doesn't know the name "ashley" so i'm always stuck with "ashle" and i have to add the "y" separately.

Well, Ross, maybe you should just stop sending text messages to Ashley. Obviously your cellphone is trying to downplay the relationship.

Or maybe see how strongly she objects to being referred to as "ash"...

BTW, I guess my problem with T9 is I don't fully get the "advanced" tools, I didn't realize 0 would cycle through the other possibilities, and I don't know how to override and force a specific letter, like Rosser's Y added seperately...
