Whenever I type "I was", the preditive dictionary chooses "WAS" as the first choice, rather than "was". However, it does not do this if I type "was" on its own, only if it follows "I." Obviously this is very annoying when typing out quick replies on my phone. I have next word prediction turned off, "WAS" does not appear in my dictionary so cannot be deleted. Why is it doing this only with this phrase, and how can I turn it off?

In your keyboard settings there should be a "My dictionary" or "My words" or something similar, in there should be all of the words you have added to AutoCorrect, if "WAS" is there, delete it, if not add "was".

  • I entered was into the dictionary, deleted it and now it seems to have fixed itself. Thanks!
