Default Galaxy S2 - Can't type "I'm" in predictive text!

Hi

I use predictive texting and I have a load of custom words saved in the dictionary, as you do.

However, no matter what I do I can't get it to recognise the word "I'm". I've hit "Add word", typed "I", gone to the symbols and typed an apostrophe, then typed "m", in the way you would expect to add a new word.

Except the bloody thing won't recognise it! If I type "I'm" it doesn't offer it as an option.

Anyone else have this issue? It's driving me insane, and it looks odd typing "I am" every time.

cheers

Steve

What keyboard are you using? In the built in Swype it should be no problem.

I don't have a GS2, but this should be pretty standard across the board:

Push Menu button > Settings > Language & Keyboard > Select your keyboard > Edit personal dictionary.

Or something along those lines. Make sure "I'm" is in there.

I had the same problem mate, it was driving me insane as well. What to do is go to Settings > Language & Keyboard > Samsung Keypad > XT9 Advanced Settings > and make sure you tick the box next to Auto - Substitution. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen to XT9 auto-substitution, press that and you will see all your substitution words which are now active. You can also add more words to substitute if you want to. Hope this helps.

I have this same problem with "it's" on my OG evo. I get all kinds of weird things all the time! No matter how many times I edit my user dictionary it screws up.

Hi

Sorry, forget to ever check this after a week, and just found it again. I did what you suggested (auto-complete thingy) and it worked, so you have my eternal gratitude in the event you ever read this!

Thanks

Steve

I use Super Keyboard, and it will do the same thing. In one case it was I'd and yesterday it simply had a fit with gmx. GMX is a mail service that I use and I was trying to type in my email addy. Super Keyboard insisted on GMC! I don't mind the suggestions, but don't correct unless I tell you to! (I don't have autocorrect enabled)
I am also not making a custom dictionary just to suit an app.
