Android :: Automatic Correction Of Spelling?

Whenever I text and I go to type 'yo' it automatically corrects it to 'to'. I'm guessing I set this by accident at first. How do I reset this?

HTC Desire :: Spelling Auto-correction
On my old Blackberry I could programme the dictionary to change certain letter combos in to the correct words. Kind of like - "helo" > "hello".

As this was user programmable, it was also useful for including things like - "hl" > "hello mate".

On to my point. I write " I'll " a lot but get annoyed sticking the apostrophe in. If I write it without the apostrophe, it's just the word "ill" so it doesn't change it to "i'll". On my Blackberry I made "il" become "I'll".

Or, if I type " il " and keep selecting " I'll " from the suggested spellings, will the dictionary eventually change its default suggestion?

Android :: Disabling Spelling Suggestions In EditText
I've got an EditText that I don't want spelling suggestions for since it's just a user name input field.

I've tried setting autoText to be "false" but when I start typing in the EditText with the soft keyboard I am still provided with spelling suggestions. I've also tried setting inputType to be "none" however that doesn't help either.

What's the correct way to disable this functionality (in XML or in code) so that no spelling suggestions are provided?

Android :: Swiftkey Keyboard - Correct Spelling But Not Fill With Suggested Words
I've downloaded the Swiftkey Keyboard and like it a lot but am a bit frustrated by the autocomplete concept they use. I guess there should be two options: autocorrect spelling mistakes I make and another option for autocompleting words I am trying to type. Too often I find that Swiftkey's "predicted" word option based on what I type is so far off that I end up sending a nonsensical message to people.

HTC Droid Eris :: Weather Still Working - Has Long Spelling On State Today
The default HTC Weather app isn't working today after I restarted my phone after a test.

The Current location 1/2 says Albuquerque, New Mexico. It says "No weather data available"

The 2/2 entry I programed is Albuquerque, NM and that works.

I just added a 3rd Dallas, TX and that works.

Something is odd. It's using the long spelled out state name for the Current location and that doesn't seem to be found in the Weather server when it checks. Just the 2 letter state names seem to work.

Android :: EditText Without Auto-correction
My EditText needs to accept input consisting of partial words, names, etc. At least on my HTC Desire, this is difficult since the keyboard wants to suggest and/or correct some entries (e.g., changes "gor" to "for"). I tried setting textNoSuggestions on the view, but that doesn't fix it.

Android : Way To Change Default Correction Of A Word?
I posted this a few days ago but nobody can solve it and I know there must be a way. My problem is that whenever I go to type 'Yo' in a text, it automatically corrects it to 'To'. I'm guessing that I corrected this myself a while ago and now it has it saved. I already tried adding 'Yo' to my user dictionary but the problem persists. Is there really no way to change the default correction of a word?

HTC EVO 4G :: Wimax - Connection Correction
This is a confirmed fix for the long lag time (5+ minutes) to reconnect after losing a 4G signal.
Those of us using a rom with the newest software 1.47.651.1 have been having issues with the 4G connection not reconnecting when losing 4G signal. These instructions fix this problem.

Your MSL code (See Here: [How To] Retrieve MSL CDMA Workshop Method - xda-developers)

Turn OFF your 4G radio if it is turned on!
1) Click on phone and dial ##DATA# (##3282#)
2) Click on "Edit Mode"
3) Type in your MSL code (see above if you don't have it yet)
4) Click on the menu entry "WiMAX"
5) Scroll down the list and click on "WiMAX_Scan_Retry(s)"
6) Enter the number 15 and click "OK" (This equals 15 seconds instead of 300 seconds)
7) Scroll down the list and click on "WiMAX_Entry_Delay(s)"
8) Enter the number 0 and click "OK" (This equals 0 seconds instead of 300 seconds)
9) Press the "Menu" key and click on "Commit Modifications"
10) Grab a cup of coffee, get a bite to eat, or sit back and wait for your EVO to restart

1) Go to your phone's settings and click on "Wireless & networks"
2) Scroll down and click on 4G settings
3) Click on 4G to turn it on and wait for the status to change to "Connected to Sprint"
4) Without touching any of the menu items, cover the top half of your phone with your hands until the status changes to "Scanning..."
5) Uncover the top of the phone and count the seconds until it says "Connecting to Sprint"
6) Realize that you no longer have to cycle the 4G radio to reconnect

After modifying my EVO and my girlfriend's EVO and inputting these changes, the phone will reconnect to the 4G tower in as little as 20 seconds!
Yes, 20 seconds, the most I have seen so far is 30 seconds after dropping the connection. This is a HUGE improvement over the 5+ minutes to reconnect (300+ seconds).

HTC Droid Eris :: Prediction Vs Spell Correction
what exactly does the Spell Correction feature do? I realized today that I had it disabled all this time. I tried typing with Spell Correction enabled but haven't noticed any difference. The user manual explains the settings like this:

Prediction Select to enable the word prediction feature which provides a list of possible words that reflect the characters of the keys you have tapped as well as characters of nearby keys.

Spell correction Select to correct typographical errors by selecting from a list of possible words that reflect the characters of the keys you have tapped as well as characters
of nearby keys. ...but the keyboard seems to me to function exactly the same with or without spell correction enabled.

HTC Droid Eris :: Spell Correction Dictionary
I have a Droid Eris and have the spell correction turned on. I noticed that when I type a word that isn't already in the phone's memory, it says that it's saving it. Does anyone know how I can edit that list? It has accidentally saved a couple "words" that aren't really words and I wanted to clear it out.

Motorola Droid X :: Symbols - Backspacing - Auto-correction - STOP
How do I stop some of the symbols from automatically backspacing one space when I am typing?

For example when I type, "I'll be there @ 3:30" it auto corrects to, "I'll be there@ 3:30."

It does this with the @, &, ", - , and I am sure others. I end up having to delete the symbol, add the space again, then type the symbol.

Sony Ericsson Xperia X1/X2 :: MSN Messenger Word Correction Or Similar Issue
I'm generally happy with my X2, but just got an annoying issue going on and cant find any documentation for it. I was chatting in MSN and somehow clicked some buttons by mistake. It activated somesort of word-guessing-system. I'm sorry, I don't even understand what it is. But basically it will popup a small bar where it asks to Add word? or something. I thought its spellchecker or something like that.. Anyway, I don't remember what i pressed and there is no option in MSN for it. Using Windows Mobile 6.5 Pro.

HTC Droid Eris :: Predictive Text - Saved Text Correction
You know how when you type something incorrectly it corrects it to the most likely word? Well, in a few cases I have saved words on accident, like I saved the word "tou" once by accident. So now every time I type that it stays at that and doesn't auto correct to "you." How can I go into my saved words or even predictive text menu and edit words?

Android :: Automatic Conversation Recorder
I am looking for an automatic conversation recorder application. What I need the application to do is to constantly 'listen' on the microphone, and as soon somebody around starts speaking (the noise level increases to high) it automatically starts to record the conversation. Once there are no more sounds coming in for e.g. a few minutes, it stops recording.

Does anyone have the same "problem"?

Android :: Swype / Automatic Spacing After Period?
I am very impressed with Swype and just amazed that it is able to correctly guess what I am trying to type most of the time. But I have a question. What is the correct way to add a period? It seems that when i first started using it, if I used a period it would automatically add a space and capitalize the next word. But it doesn't do that now. I get no space or capitalization and have to add the space manually.

Android :: Make Automatic Login On Application?
I'm trying to create a "registration on my application" activity with only the user having to insert his name and email.

I want to add this values to my server database. Which is already working fine, The user inserts the name and email and android sends a http request to a php on my server and the php inserts this values in the database.

The thing is.. I'd like this to happen only once and by this I mean if the user has registed with that cellphone the device would remember it and just go to another activity but keeping thoose 2 values available to use.

Is this possible to do? Maybe my application access the device preferences or something like that.. or should I build besides a register, a login page for the user to login and make the validation on the server side?

Anyone has any tutorial on this or something to get me started?

Android :: No Automatic WiFi Handover Between Access Points
I have a Samsung Galaxy S, running Froyo. I have an issue with WiFi handover, so I am posting here (in addition to the SGS section) in case this is an Android issue rather than an SGS-specific issue. I have two WiFi Access Points (APs) at home, both using the same SSID, but on different channels.

I expected the SGS to automatically move (handover) from one AP to another based on signal strengths that vary depending on where I am. However, this does not happen. It stays on the AP that it is connected to, even when moving to very poor signal levels. I need to manually trigger this (e.g by disconnecting from the AP). Any configuration or Android app. By the way, I also tried configuring the APs with different SSIDs, but this didn't work either.
