    U'm!? What is U'm? Custom word list garbage:

    Advertisement



    I'm getting a bit irritated with the custom word list. For some insane reason, my 8100 keeps adding the word "U'm" to the list, and putting it ahead of "I'm" in the selection list. So when I type looking at the keys, instead of the screen, the Pearl automatically selects U'm instead of I'm. U'm stays the first selection even after I repeatedly skip over U'm to select I'm.
    No big deal, right? Just delete the offending entry from the custom word list. But it keeps coming back like the killer in a horror flick. I don't understand how it happens in the first place. Obviously, I never choose to type U'm, so why would it be added to the list?
    I've had the same problem with other words, but none are so annoying as U'm, because I use I'm quite often.
    Anybody have any tips on how to prevent this kind of thing from happening?

    may be add "I'm" to the custom word list??

    hopefully that would override the U'm?

    Not sure why it keeps coming back, but it seems like my pearl automatically scans incoming messages and adds words it doesn't know to the custom wordlist. That might be how it got there in the first place... I can see how that would be really annoying though. Maybe type "I am" instead of "I'm"?

    Try going to Options/Advanced Options/Costum Wordlist/Menu/New

    Add this "Im" to your costum words lol
    then
    Go to Options/Advanced Options/Auto Txt
    and find where it says "um" or "Im" when u hit the "3" and "9" key if u find "um" somewhere there hit menu and edit the "um" to "Im"

    Hope this helps

    I havent checked my Custom Word list in about 2 weeks and i just did and there all kinds of crap in there that doesnt even make sense, aka from spam etc.

    So i just disabled my custom word list from learning stuff on incoming emails, basically requiring me to type it once then saving it to the word list.

    Funny. Maybe you can use the Autocorrect function to change u'm to i'm.

    Try going to options>auto text and looking for "I'm (U'm)". If you see it then delete it.

    Hope this helps,

    I think thats why he mentioned this in his initial post:

    "No big deal, right? Just delete the offending entry from the custom word list. But it keeps coming back like the killer in a horror flick."

    options -> language -> scroll to the bottom on screen to the button "input options" -> check or uncheck the ones you want. you may have auto word learning from messages toggled on.
