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

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.
