AFAIK you just have to type "your", change it to the correct word, do a space, then repeat. Do this four or five times then it will default back to the proper word. This is a pain though, sometimes it 'learns' the new word after one incorrect spelling!

No you don't keep pressing # until you get to 'spell'. Spell it once, so it's in the dictionary, and then type the word, press # until your word appears, then do a space, and repeat. You should only use 'spell' at the very start to get the word in the dictionary. After a few word space word space goes it will work.

Yep, this worked for me, from another forum:
"Recently I added a custom word to my phone and now it appears everytime I want to type a much more common word, resulting that now I have to press the next word button thing. Annoying extra clicks! I found this method from
Editing Entries in the T9 Dictionary Thoughts on S60 to solve it.


Open a blank text message and skip down to the message field.

Type the word that appears incorrectly.

Press the “+” key (”*”) until the correct word appears.

Press the “Space” key (”_”/”0″) and repeat a good few times, up to 15 or 16. This method usually takes a couple more corrections, but should work in the end."

I had 3 words on my N85 that were messed up and one of them took a good 40 tries til it reset itself!

Happy now though, no more problems

Or just delete the `\Predic' folder in Y-Browser or similar.
