    I have a Samsung and use the T9 prediction feature for texting. Here my problem: the word "vid" was not in the list of predictions so I added it in the spell mode to add it to the list of predicted words. but now it predicts "Vid"every time I want to use the word "the" so I have to scroll down to the word every time I want the word "the". its a big pain the butt. How do I remove "vid" from my prediction????

    Seriously, I have no clue...but I wish you luck!

    I found this on WikiAnswers:

    Not sure if you still have this problem. I have had it for weeks now and its got to the point where I wanted to kill the phone! I decided, after failing to here from Samsung, to fiddle about with it and hey ho, I found out how to fix it! You have to retrain the phone to put the word you want to appear first, instead of the one it automatically brings up. For example, I got the number 843 all of a sudden when I was trying to type 'the', so if you change it using the 0 key so it says the, then repeat that over and over, eventually it will sort itself out, it takes about 8 turns of you typing and changing before it does it, but in the end it did it. I also had 76 come up when typing 'so' and 86 when typing 'to', both of those have been resolved too now.

    Hope it works for you mate.
