Samsung keyboard editable but no access to Android (which I agree is better).
SOLUTION (or at least the one I found):
*need rooted phone
*need root file manager
*need sql editor
Using file manager search for "dictionary"
Open the found dictionary folder for "android keyboard" and then the sub folder "words"
-you will be prompted to use "internal viewer" or" sql editor" to read the file
-uncheck the "do not show this again" box as you will want it to show again to get easy access to the sql editor market app.
-click "internal viewer" to check out the file contents. You should see a list of words and your problems should be easily seen. The problem is that you cannot do anything with them.
-go back and this time select "sql editor" and order it from Market. Pay the <$3 and download.
-repeat the same procedure from the search. This time you will use sql editor to open the "words" file
-if you select individual words by pressing and holding, you will get a menu, one of the options which is to "delete record". Do so. The mis-spelled word will be removed from the database.
-When you're done fixing things, exit out and reboot the phone to load the new database into the keyboard
-you should no longer see the mis-spells coming up anymore highlighted in red in the word selection bar (such as in email) as a correct word
Hope this helps
I just looked and seems there is no "free" versions of these apps. This is a problem for me since it's a group phone to the business that doesn't have the ability to allow us to pay for apps =(
I will try this when I get home if I can find free versions. Certainly you shouldn't have to PAY to edit the phones damn dictionary!
I get angry when I type two and "yew" comes up as an option.. and even is always eben. They aren't even words! Why is it that my new phone has these non words as options even that come up? Im juts disgusted with the whole sqype keyboard. No matter how accurate I am, the 4 words it comes up with as choices aren't even words most of the time. I end up looking like a idiot when I hit send and not check every last word.. which should NOT be the way it has to be. Not like I am new to texting either!
