    I love the fact that I can type words like "im" and it predicts into "I'm". Is it an all or nothing thing though because I'm continually getting odd words thrown into my texts and not catching it. Mostly happens with slang usage or proper names.

    Is the only trick to keep entering these things into the personal dictionary until you root out the majority of mishaps or is there a better way. Almost wish there was a list of usual suspects that it'd auto fix but that it'd leave alone proper name entries and abbreviations and so forth. Wishful thinking or possible?

    i have the exact same problem with abbrevations, slang etc...just add them and it will learn it soon enough. it does get annoying when you are in a hurry and have to double check it.

    is it true you can now go in and view your saved words, in case you saved a word to the phone's dictionary by accident, and delete it?
