    I have a Alcatel Fierce 4 5056N cellphone and I want to stop predictive text substitutions when I type a word that I meant to type. Is there a way to stop this from happening. It's really frustrating.

    Which keyboard app are you using? Have you already looked at its settings menu?

    Check your keyboard settings. If you want to turn off the automatic word replacement and go only with manual replacement, the feature to turn off is often called "auto-correct" (tied to the use of the space bar).

    It is old! But it still works. It's a 6.0.01 Android. I also have the option to use "Bitmoji" and Google keyboards.

    Thank you! Found it! Here's what I did: I went to Settings, Android Keyboard, Text Correction, and turned off "Auto-correction". I guess "Predictive Texting" shows my age... LOL. That's what was used on the old, old, flip phones (and before "flipping" was heard of on cellphones).

    It may work but that will change going forward as more apps won't be compatible.

    Well, that is true, but by then I'll need a new phone anyway! This one is old... but still works. Thank you for your input.
