    Settings, Language and input, Personal Dictionary is what I was told but I can't figure it out. I've added the words but it doesn't use them.

    nobody else cares to add personal words or emails to dictionary or predictive text options. surprised. or maybe only certain phones are having the problem of not using the added words?

    I use Smart Keyboard because the custom dictionary doesn't seem to work with the Samsung keyboard.

    I've done the following steps, but the words and phrase I add never show up when typing.

    Same problem with GN2. Called Samsung and did soft reset, then a "Factory Reset" - lost everything. Still doesn't work. Through Samsung I was eventually pushed up to "Level 2 Support", who tried a few of the same silly steps I tried several times before. They eventually wanted to arrange for me to send my phone in for evaluation. I passed on that option. Still love the phone despite these problems. I did download the Gingerbread 2.3 keyboard and did get some of the autocorrect functions back, but it's still spotty.

    Question: Is this a phone problem or a JellyBean problem?

    Not sure about the Samsung keyboard, here's how I added words, using the Swype keyboard. Type out the word, space, backspace, and it appears on the list above the keyboard. Subsequently, those words will appear on that list.

    With my GN2 (Verizon) I was able to do this by going into text messaging:

    type in the word
    select word by touching it
    a check mark should appear in the top left of the screen
    press it

    That should do it.

    I followed the steps you provided, but they still were not added to the Personal Dictionary under Language and Settings

    Type the word in then hit space and then delete. And the word should be added. This works for me but the words do not show up in the dictionary for some reason.

    FOUND IT!!! Go to the the Language and input settings, then Samsung keyboard settings (gear icon), then long press "Predictive text" to bring up a hidden menu. Now enable Personalized data! You can set it to learn from Facebook/Twitter/Gmail if you use them a lot. It seems to learn sometimes but not always, and the learned words are not added to the editable user dictionary. Long pressing a predictive word (in the suggested words bar) will ask if you want to remove it from the learned dictionary if it's in there, but some words just refuse to get learned. It also depends on sentence prediction situations, so it can be frustrating at times. Why this menu is totally hidden and it is so different from the old keyboards is a mystery.

    Worked on my S4... Settings>language and input>personal dictionary>"+">enter word or phrase and shortcut and then click on the back arrow button and you should see the new word displayed. I hope this helps. Good luck

    I've created an app to personalize User Dictionary with own words used in Facebook, Twitter, Gmail, SMS, backup txt file and WhatsApp conversations.
    There is also possibility to backup User Dictionary on file and to delete it.

    I use the google keyboard. I just set up a personal dictionary, like everyone else did in the above settings. It works very similarly to how the blackberries worked with word substitution.

    For instance I just input "ph" and it converts to my phone # like this 123-456-7890.

    I couldn't get it to work on Swift Key or the Samsung keyboard. But the google keyboard is perfect for this.
