I don’t know what was in the head of Nokia when they are shipping some of their Symbian^3 smartphones with the ability of auto-correction, but they turned it off by default. Nokia C7 has the feature enabled on default, while the C7 has a full QWERTY keyboard so they won’t need it. The problem is at the N8 and C6-01, that caused typing on the virtual keyboard real hard.
Thankfully, there is an easy way to solve this problem. Here are some steps for you to enable the text auto-correction. Firstly, of course you have to start the application where you want to type your text, messaging for example. Tap ‘New Message’, and then choose ‘Reply’ or ‘Forward’ to bring the text editing page out. After that, tap on the virtual QWERTY keyboard (on landscape mode).
Moreover, tap the menu icon and select ‘Input options’, and then choose ‘Activate prediction’. Go back to the menu for your keyboard, choose ‘Settings’, and finally select ‘Show suggestion’ on the ‘Text correction mode’. Voila, now you can type just like when you are using an iPhone or Android device that will automatically fix your mistyped words.
