    Over time i accidentally added misspelled words to my magic's auto-correct dictionary.

    Can I clear the items, and restore it to default keyboard words?

    Then just edit or delete words as needed

    I don't believe this is where the dictionary is anymore. I have looked and can't find it anywhere. Does anyone else know where it is now?

    If your using the default keyboard the instructions given previously are correct :)

    Are you using an alternative keyboard? the HTC_IME?

    AS far as I know I am using the original keyboard, but using chomp sms if that changes anything.

    I do not have user dictionary in my locale and text menu.

    I know Jeff000 is from Canada, and recently performed the forced Rogers/HTC update tp 1.5 for the 911 bug fix, which also added HTC Sense UI. This update has cause a number of problems, including removing certain functions.

    Can the rest of you with the missing dictionary tell us which phone you are using, and which OS version? By any chance are you using a Rogers Magic after the 911bugfix update, or otherwise using Sense UI?

    Go into Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>Touch Input>Clear Data

    This will clear USER dictionary and settings such as Vibrate and Sounds while texting, which can be set back in seconds under Settings>Locale and Text

    Hope this helps!

    First go to the home page then push menu. click settings. Click Language and keyboard. click touch input. click user dictionary. from there you can select the words that you have accientally added and want to take out of the dictionary. You can even add words there.
    hope this helps :)

    I have "keyboard types", "Keyboard Language", "Text input", "Tutorial" in the Tough input menu, non of which contain anything that could possibly be a user dictionary.

    Don't know what phone you're using, but I was starting to get frustrated too. Incredible, 2.1, rooted. Went to Language and Keyboard > Touch Input > User Dictionary

    Might try looking under text input or in the others for more sub menus, even if they seem counter intuitive that there would be a dictionary in the menu...

    Do you guys know how to edit words in the dictionary for the HTC Desire C pls? I have searched all over but couldn't find. :/

    EDIT:

    Nevermind. I found it under:
    Settings > Language & Keyboard > HTC Sense Input> Advanced Settings.
    Toggle Word Prediction & Spell Correction & Word Completion

    :D

    Well I have a G'zone Commando, and the way i did ti was i went to settings, then to applications, manage applications, All Applications, and at the very bottom was XT9 Text input, you go in and click on Clear data and that should do the trick, (P.S.) If you have trace on it will turn it off!! :):):):)

    I had the same problem and came here to find an answer. Found nothing that worked. So, I tried this and it worked. Let me know if it works for you.

    I am using a LG Optimus G ls970 (sprint) with jellybean

    Went to app settings>android keyboard >clear data>yes

    It cleared everything from slang to mistakes to usernames. Hope this helps someone.

    What worked for me:

    New message ... just to have the keyboard
    Click on settings. (The keyboard ones)
    Click on predictive text.
    Clear personalised data.
