To change this setting, open a new text message via "Create Message," then select "Options," then "Text Mode," then "Multitap." If you ever want to change back, you go to the same menu and select "T9 Predictive Text."

Once again I'm answering my own question. I stumbled across this by accident. Go to 1. Create Message. Click on Create message. Click on Text mode. Press select. The box comes up on the right hand side with these options: 1. T9predictive text, 2. Numeric, 3. Symbols. I must have clicked on Predictive text and so change from predictive to multitap and it's back to typing in whatever letters you put there instead of predicting what you were going to type.
