    Came across this in the pub last night with Geordie Colin. What's the longest word that your phone will allow in predictive text? midsuakineaglialihlaihickusig (29) works before the beep goes. Can't include extended words though has to be one continous entry. Colin claims to have got to 47 but I think he might have cheated.

    All entries subject to the adjudicators varification.

    Are the Noika phones any good? I've got a Nokia at the moment, but I'm looking for a new one.

    2md text is allowed but regretfully WWI an IC are disqualified as they don't work on my phone. Have you perhaps mis-typed the post. Any further independant confirmation would be appreicated.

    Noika ok I have the 6310i as it comes with Bluetooth so can be used handsfree in the car. Very reliable and excellent battery life if little big compared to some of those flash colour ones.

    OK it's a tie between 2MD and nbb, good game while it lasted. So Colin must have been cheating. So why 32? It this a computer bit thing?

    Poor you, do you give it a shorter name when you tell your friends? Like "oh I'm feeling a bit Hippo" Must be awful having to write this down. Any way keep taking the tablets and give the dictionaries a miss for a few weeks.
