    Eh, maybe it'll be a fun game, maybe it'll bomb. :p I thought of it just now when I was debating posting in the Droid forum to see who else has got Danforth. I've got it several times and it's sorta a running joke at home now. I love it.

    Figure out what is originally typed on the software keyboard to make the provided 'correction' be what is entered (if you just spacebar your way to the next word without changing what it assumes you want). I'm not sure if the dictionaries/predictions vary across UIs so.. I guess list the phone too.

    I don't know or care if it'd be best to get the answer right before you go on. Perhaps a free for all is in order here. :)

    First one:

    Danforth

    My guess is the original word was "Phandroid" but I may never know if I am right...bump

    I don't understand this game, plus my auto correction only works on words that are close to another word meaning it would actually type out phandroid or other words that aren't close to any words...

    It was a guess and Phases made the OP in 2009 so even if he does see I bumped the thread I don't know if he would even remember what word became danforth. Plus it would be difficult to find an OG droid running the shipping firmware to test it out as well...:p

    I was just going to post "Danforth!" each time the thread got bumped. If phases checked in FG more often maybe we would know.

    Speaking of autocorrect blunders, if anyone has ever tried to send a curse word in a text message, sometimes that'll get corrected, which is kinda funny.

    Damn! becomes D-Man! lolwut?

    :D
