predict, don't auto-correct?


May 19, 2010
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.
