    Check your Custom Word List for accuracy.

    Advertisement



    For some reason I checked my Custom Word List and I was surprised to find that about 1/10th of it contained garbage. I know it learns from us but it also seems to learn words from your emails.

    There were misspelled words, partial words and garbage words (ie.. erection, etc...) that it must have learned from spam emails as I never typed anything like that.

    So check your CWL and see what yours contains. You may be surprised.

    Sometimes these phones are a little to "smart" and pick up things that we dont want.

    The reason for all the junk is that everytime you type in something and it's not in the standard word-list, once you press "space" it automatically adds it to the custom word list.

    This is a major problem, as the suretype will choose that word instead of bringing up the correct word. I'm now torn whether to return to the 8700 instead, because I am now finding that I am checking every time I enter a word now. And the process is quite time consuming.

    LOL just like my KIDS!

    But yeah, thanks for the reminder, I love suretype and that list in general but it can get a bit carried away. Got it cleaned back out now...

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Now we know and the quick fix is just to delete the entire list every now and then. Else spend a few minutes going through it once in a while.

    Anyone know if there's a way to select a number of "wrong" words at the same time to delete? I've only been able to go through one by one, and that is time consuming.
