What happened to the word "I'll" in my predictive text list?

    This is bugging the crap out of me. I even added I'll to my personal dictionary and merged it and still no I'll when I type "I" or Ill". It worked fine on my Thunderbolt. I used to be able to type ill and I'll showed as a choice, but no more.

    So it obviously doesn't work adding it to my personal dictionary, any other suggestions?

    I use Swiftkey 3 keyboard. It has "I'll". I highly, highly recommend this app.

    I think "we'll" and "we're" have the same problem. Probably some others, too. I'm a stickler for punctuation, so my texting takes a lot longer than it should.

    Otherwise I'm fine with the stock keyboard, so I haven't felt the need to go for a third-party solution.

    The stock keyboard is horrible. SwiftKey 3 all the way!!!! The free version now offers an all red option under "themes." Very, very sexy!!!

    I'm really annoyed with this too!
    I have an HTC One X and used to have "I'll" pop up all the time when texting. After the latest operating system update it's gone, and I'm stuck with "Ill".
    I've complained to HTC about it, and they said they'll get on to Google.
    What's the matter with people?
    This is a ridiculous mistake!!
    I too tried to add "I'll" to my personal dictionary - without success.
    Come on Google, pull your finger out!

    The predictive spelling is terrible in the stock keyboard. Coming from the Inc4G was a pain. Not sure how/why it went backwards. I have tried other keyboards, and just don't like them. Just fix the stock one.

    I use the stock "phone keyboard" option, and the only way to get I'll to show up is to type I and then an apostrophe. It shows up in the options then. Dunno why it can't interpret Ill as possibly meaning I'll since it's such a common word.

    But the stock predictive text is weird, anyway. I often find it putting 'b' instead of 'a' in sentences, totally at random. It just never seems to know what word I need.
