    forum newbie

    Hi, here to research and likely root my Droid2. Just when have MY personal cellphone set the way I like(yes, me, the person who paid for it) , along comes an update that fubars everything. Disappears things I like (wth is my orange wallpaper?), adds ca-ca I don't want (I thought Blockbuster went bankrupt years ago!), and runs slower with every update. I have never had anything in common with the programmer who adds new 'conveniences" like that annoying blue thing that highlights, the hyphen that puts itself in front of the letter I want it after, and adds (forcibly!) suggested words, capitalizes at random and the list goes on. I would like control of MY phone back, same as the toaster, shoes, microwave, and other possessions I paid for. Everytime I Google'd for solutions this forum came up. Found the posts helpful and am impressed by the collective knowledge and willingness to share that. Plan to upgrade to 4G if/when Mototola releases 4G with slideout qwerty. Maserati buzz looks interesting, but what is "smooth" keyboard? A slideout touchscreen in an attempt to 'wean' those of us who prefer tactile? And I just learned that some phones do not have removable batteries. Nuts to that, as well. Can someone tell me how to shut off that automatic word thing? I just want what I type to show up. Obviously I don't help adding verbiage. Thanking you in advance.

    Welcome to the forum good to have you on board. You can change keyboard settings through the Language & Keyboard sub menu in your phone settings. Just click for the settings of the keyboard you are using and disable auto complete.

    Oh thank you! Went to language settings per your instructions-had no idea how much 'auto' was included. Guess I'm old fashioned, but I think this does a disservice. I didn't understand the associations in the auto-complete; I don't think it was 'learning' me. Didn't it come 'loaded' with what someone else thinks I'm going to say next? Hilarious

    In any case, Chizzele, THANK YOU! What a relief; starting to feel better already. I knew this forum was a good idea.
