This is positioned high in Google, so I'm gonna paste my solution here. I own a Sonyericsson Xperia Arc S and the Personal Dictionary list was empty.

There is a fairly new app called Perfectly Clear which allows you to select multiple images and apply corrections to all of them at once in batch. You could also set a preset and apply the enhancements the same way for all images. Fair warning, for the more advanced features they have in-app purchases.

Stock keyboard (as well as most 3rd-party keyboard apps) has both auto-correct and auto-completion (a.k.a. "suggestions") built in.

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

It depends on what keyboard app you're using. If you're using Google Keyboard (the default on Nexus devices), go into its settings. Go to the Text correction section and click Auto-correction.

There's a keyboard better that that of Blackberry: SwiftKey X. Believe me, you'll love its Artificial Intelligence based suggestions. It learns from your typing habits to suggest you better. And, it can learn from Twitter, Facebook, Gmail and RSS Feed too (Quick Learning).

SwiftKey simply is a keyboard app. You might want to check in Settings→Language & Input→Keyboards and Input methods which keyboard is active/checked, and check its configuration.
