    Can you tell me how to edit the dictionary on my Droid? I accidentally synched my phone to my Facebook and I don't want my friend's names to come up when I'm texting.

    Go to Settings/Lanuage and Keyboard/User Dictionary and you can edit there.

    You can also edit it on the fly as you enter messages by long-pressing on each word.

    What if that "language/keyboard" is not an option?

    On my settings, I see a "locale and text," but no language and keyboard.

    I've tried the locale and text instead, but there is no "edit dictionary" option in there (or anywhere else I can find).

    I've learned to add words to my dictionary as I'm typing a message, but I want to be able to change or remove ones that are stored.

    settings
    language and keyboard
    user dictionary
    press and hold the text you want to delete, you'll get a pop up.
    press delete

    There is no:

    "settings
    language and keyboard
    user dictionary"

    On the Droid Eris. I'll search other topics for this, but this is the first thread that popped up when I searched for the OP's original question.

    My problem is that I have never added anything to my user dictionary, yet when I enter, say "I'm", it tries to enter "O'Neil" instead! I would LOVE to delete that dictionary entry, but it seems I can't, because it is not one I added!
