I have had the Samsung Solstice for about a week and for the most part I love it. I use the T9 because I haven't become comforable with the QWERTY keyboard yet. Apparently the T9 dictionary has been making up random words. Like "Nh" or "Oh" or "On't" for "No" or "Not". Also, there are several words that I put in there that the phone has made the default for the words. And it also randomly capitalizes words.
I do know how to use touch screen phones, I'm not some stupid person who just got this phone and has no idea how to use it. I had the LG Vu for about six months until it got stolen.
I've looked ALL OVER for the T9 dictionary on the Solstice and cannot find it.
Is there any way to delete these words or get to the T9 dictionary without having to fully reset the phone?

I have the same problem. An example is instead of "can" I get "A'am" and instead of "so" I get "r6."
Is there anyone working on this? Hello, AT&T? A little customer service please?

I've got the exact same problem, it's gotten to the point now that it's messing with really common words. Like no. Instead of "no" I get "Oo"...WHAT? Does anyone else get those little squares after words too?

i get the "oo" for no and the little square as well.
the last samsung i had learned words as you type them, even ones you entered incorrectly. i spoke to an att rep who said the dictionary couldn't be edited, only reset. to reset it meant the entire phone! seems to me that if they make a phone that learns words, you should be able to edit them!!

I had the same problem. I still haven't figured out how to delete words in the T9 dictionary, but I did figure out a way to work around the problem.
All you need to do is add the word you want (for example: "are") to the dictionary as a new word. Then when you type it, the new word ("are") will show up as the first choice with the word you don't want ("ard") being second.

Was there ever an answer to this question? I am desperate to get rid of Hat'd instead of have, On't instead of not, Ht instead of it, and these random annoying boxes after words.

Yes! I am having the same issue, same exact words. It's been like this from day one and over the last five months it's become increasingly worse. I see hollow box squares, too. And Ht, Gs, On't, Oo, Om, od, ge, etc. It's so annoying. I have no idea how to add a new word to the dictionary, which is why I don't know how these messed up words got in there in the first place!

Because it is a lower end QMD, the dictionary cannot be edited, only reset. I just turned of T9 because it is so irritating.

Finally! I feel as if I have come home.....! This question of the dictionary has been driving me nuts. So it's not just me and my phone? That is very reassuring because I was beginning to doubt my own sanity. This dictionary just makes words up at random.
Most irritating is 'On't' for not, also 'on't' (just in case I don't want to start a sentence with 'On't' I guess?) then there's 'on - plus the square box. Ii, Hipton, mm, om, wot, ido, lOk, (note the random capital...) lly, ometer, coulda, nov, cd, cf, kbt........ my phone may well be speaking Klingon for all I know. It sure ain't speaking English! Hipton fascinates me though, apparently it really used to be an obscure brand of tea.
It's frustrating to learn that I can't do much about this though. Amusement value aside. it's pretty irritating. Still, looking on the bright side, my family are finding my texts far more entertaining these days.

It's always good to keep the family entertained.

Thank you Thank You THANK YOU !!
You're tip is a godsend!!

I pray thee, sjrogalinski, hold. Dost thy tongue not oft utter, nor thy quill oft pen such delightful language as that which follows?
'Twere a pitiable state were such historic contractions truly lost and forgotten. Agree'st thou not?
