It switches off when the backlight goes off. To adjust it, go into settings > Display >Backlight, from there you can choose the amount of time you prefer.

Doing this will fix your predictive text problem.

i am dissapointed as it keeps turning itself off' also i always have my phone on vib. rather than ring, occasionally i notice unanswered calls and i need to bash it so it works again
i took it in for service (under gaurantee) and was told there is nothing wrong.

I have one question since your comment is new. The frequencies for faster internet(3g internet) on this phone e3309, which are 900/2100, are working properly? I mean the browsing is 3g on these frequencies
Posted previously about poor predictive text but now the problem is solved. I had set the language as English in the main menu but it did not work very well at all. I fixed it by holding down the astrix key while typing a text and a menu came up. The language there was shown as Spanish? I changed it to English and wallah! It now works really good. If you are having problems, give it a try as it works.
Good phone in general but predictive text is not very good at all.. Is there a way to update the inbuilt dictionary?

I have samsung manhattan 3G e3300. I don know is good or not. But I think is good.
Best phone. Does everything you need. Good battery life. I am using it rather than a smartphone.

Got this phone as a temporary fix after my old phone was stolen. Mostly enjoying using it - but the dictionary for texting is awful! Every text message I have to spell at least three words - like "won", "have", "were", "here", "should", "this". I'm not talking jargon, but ordinary things we say all the time! It didn't know "love" or "sorry". Sorry guys, but that is unacceptable! I thought adding my own words to the dictionary would solve the problem but it erases the least-used or the oldest (not sure which). I've had to teach it my own name three times now and I've only owned it four weeks!
