    All of the sudden I can't type any words that aren't in the predictive text dictionary.

    For example, as I type "weusi" and hit the space bar, it auto-corrects to whatever dictionary word is closest to that.

    Now I'm new to this HTC Hero, but I thought yesterday the predictive text thing was popping up suggestions, but not auto-correcting. That's they way I like it. I want to be able to type stuff not in the dictionary if I want to.

    Right now the only way to do that would be to add stuff to the dictionary that isn't already there - otherwise its going to "correct" my word for me and I don't want that.

    If you write a word not in the dictionary, what you typed appears as the first option in the suggestion bar. Just tap it and it will change to what you wrote add it to the dictionary :)
