    Default Cursing in a text message

    How can I F*****G stop it from putting these S****Y stars?

    I know there has to be a setting somewhere, just can't find it for the life of me

    I was completely unaware that it would do this. Could it be in your keyboard settings?

    Yeah, I swear like a sailor in texts (to appropriate people)...and have never seen this??? Do you have any kind of parental settings or a 3rd party keyboard setting of some kind? I honestly have no idea, but I'm pretty sure it doesn't censor by default.

    (Some web forums will auto censor, but that's on their side...you are referring strictly to SMS texts, right?)

    Try this: settings>language and input>Voice search>and check "block offensive words"

    I can type offensive words without *** replacing the letters so maybe this setting will help.

    Not sure on the s3, but on my thunderbolt I had to manually put all of my favorite words into the dictionary.

    I have the same problem, droidx2 used to swear like a sailor but just stopped the other day. Block offensive words is unchecked. I have tried checking un checking, batt pulls etc. I also added words in my dictionary still won't swear. I did notice if I launch the google search app and tap the microphone beside the text box it recognizes swear words and searches for them, and occasionally will repeat the word to me. Hangout app used to swear in voice to text but no more, and as I said block offensive words is unchecked and words have been added to the dictionary.

    Same here, box unchecked, but still "censoring" curse words. I added some words in the dictionary and that did not make a difference
