    Hello and welcome to Android Forums, ChrisPainter!

    Assuming that you are using a UK English language pack on your phone, the correct spelling is, "Dialling"...

    "dialling
    present participle of di

    Shouldn't that be a lower case, "c", old boy? ;)

    How pedantic!
    There should have been an upper case "Y" in there too, but that obviously escaped you!

    Just thought I'd give you your 1000th "Thanks" old boy!
    Congratulations!

    Do you get an AF cuddly toy now?

    The OP stated he's using the US language pack, so "dialling" is therefore wrong, surely? ;)

    What's really disturbing is that I found Hawker's post understandable. :eek:

    p.s. Welcome to AF, ChrisPainter. I'd like to say we're not usually this eccentric..... but I'd be lying. At least we're harmless lunatics. :)

    That information was added after I wrote my post I'm afraid. Besides, since ICS has only been released in the U.S. for CSC code XEU, United Kingdom, on the i9100, then ChrisPainter should find that going to... Settings > Language and input > Language and selects English (United States)... that Dialling will be shown as Dialing! :hmmmm:

    Didn't want to labour the point. Besides, I was originally trying to run your post through the Welsh->English translator before I realised what it was. :idea:

    Thanks for that... my mum had to give me the other 999. :D

    Yes, please! :party:

    I've just checked my own handset and with Language set to English (US) the word "dialing" is definitely displayed. Changing back to English (United Kingdom) alters this to "dialling" so it's not hard-coded but is definitely dependent on the Language setting.

    Double-check the setting on your handset by selecting another language then reselecting English (US), Chris - maybe the update has confused things.

    11 posts about a word misspelled in certain countries. I get this issue a lot on my phone. The default language is English (Australia) and we get words like recognize and license...tch. Of course it's not really noticeable unless you're incredibly pedantic or you're looking for it.

    Edit: I like how this was OP's first post. He edited it and now is probably gone forever!

    I'm sure ChrisPainter won't be put off by our friendly banter. Better that than being boiled alive on xda forums!

    Besides, we arrived at an answer.

    How do you spell, "license", in Australia then?

    I'm going to hazard a guess at licence.

    Hopefully not, as The Boss won't be best-pleased at a new member being scared off. :(
