When I'm typing into a text entry field, the auto-complete suggestions I get are much worse than they used to be (they have never worked well on this phone, but have worked great on previous Android phones). For example, if I enter "Th", my suggestions are "Rh" and "Therock", rather than "The". The only suggestions that seem valid are names out of my address book.

Any ideas? I've turned on all the auto-complete settings, but the suggestions are still terrible. I'm using a Nexus One running 2.3.4.

Are you using the standard keyboard, or some third party keyboard? – MBraedley Aug 1 '11 at 20:01
The standard keyboard. – twk Aug 1 '11 at 20:07

This appears to be a bug in the 2.3.4 update. It is being tracked here.

If you are looking for a solution, I suggest downloading a third party keyboard. I'm 95% sure each keyboard has its own dictionary. I use Go Keyboard, which I prefer over the stock Android keyboard anyway, based on the larger letters and the period that doesn't hog most of the space where the keyboard should be.
