    I just got my first Android phone (N1), and like it so far. There are a few things that drive me up the wall, though.

    One of them is the 'autocomplete' (not sure what it's called): where Android suggests words as you type a text message. Great when I'm typing English, not so great when using other languages. Can this be turned off?

    Thanks.

    I'd recommend leaving spell check on. lol

    Check the settings under Locale and Text.

    Thanks for the tip!

    Question, though: is there a Android / N1 manual? The N1 came with nothing, and I can't find anything on the google.com/phone/support site either (other than a few videos).

    Thanks.
