The title says it all but i will explain a bit more.

I have a LG optimus one phone with android 2.2 froyo. It comes with two keyboards, the LG one with working text prediction and the Android / Stock keyboard (what's the official name?) that does not seem to have access to the language dictionaries because it ONLY predicts my contacts' names!

Is there a way I can fix this? I really want to use the Android/Stock keyboard with working text prediction and voice input. I don't want any alternative like swift or similar.

Thanks a lot

My stock Android keyboard works with text prediction. What's shown as the name in Settings -> Locale and text? – Matthew Read Jan 26 '11 at 20:28
in my menu: 'settings -> language & keyboard' is shown "select language, "lg keyboard", "android keyboard", "user dictionary"... sorry i didnt get notified about the comment – d.m.e.u. Jan 31 '11 at 11:02

I found this review of the LG Optimus One which includes this quote:

The standard Android keyboard’s text prediction is disabled; it doesn’t seem to have access to the system’s language dictionaries. So if you want word prediction, the LG keyboard it is.

Looks like you're going to have to go with a third-party app solution or flash a new ROM to your phone.
