I have the Droid 2 Global. Ever since the Andoird 2.3 update a little over a month ago, my phone has been displaying suggestions in green text while I compose text messages. Before the update it would have the auto-complete feature where suggestions are listed in gray text for a word that is half-typed. This new feature will do the auto-complete feature, but also it will try to predict your next word before you start typing it. And these predictions are made based on your texting history. It is recording basically all of my outgoing text messages.
Here is an example as evidence: I start by typing "what." It suggests, in green, "have." If I select that, it suggests "you," then again "been." I continue in this fashion, each time selecting the green suggested word, and it forms a complete sentence (one i have composed in the past): "What have you been doing today."
A more specific example: If I start by typing "Do," it will suggest "you." After selecting that, it suggests "still," then "have." After clicking the green suggested word each time, the message reads "Do you still have my windows 7 install CD." This is a message I have sent before, and not just a generic message that it could have predicted based on general user input.
I find this to be very intrusive and I would like to disable the feature. Under text messaging settings, there is an option to enable/disable "Display Suggestions" (show suggestions while composing). Disabling this didn't seem to do anything.
Has anyone else encountered this feature? I searched around before posting this, but I didn't see anything related. Any suggestions?
