HTC touch HD - removing typos from dictionary

As I type messages on my HTC touch in T9, it learns and adds words to the dictionary and then shows them later as suggestions.

Over time I have made so many typos that the dictionary is now full of errors.

Does anyone know how to remove these incorrect entries from the suggested answers that come up as I type in T9?

Failing that, try editing \windows\eT9Rudb.Rdb but be careful not to mess it up.

Hi there Alan

Thanks for you replies.

I am not having much luck here with the Touch HD!

Using explorer on the phone (and also tried through the PC), and ensuring "all files are shown" I cannot find in the windows folder any of the files listed in the link you sent me!

I cannot see \Windows\custom.dic or \Windows\dyncompdict.dat or \Windows\dyncompdict.tmp or

I tried the dictionary word editor but it shows dictionary contents on 0 words

Then following your second post, I found \windows\eT9Rudb.Rdb but I am not certain how to edit this?
 i transferred it to PC and opened it in notepad but it comes up with a bit of gibberish and then the words are shown but spaces between each letter. It the only way to edit this in notepad?

Any idea why I have not got a custom.dic and that dictionary editor does not show any entries?

thanks

Gabriel

Also tried this:

Start>Settings>Personal>Input, Word Completion tab, "Clear Stored Entries" button.

But it did not work! It seemed to have no affect at all.

One more thought, if i just delete (i will save a copy in case) the eT9Rudb.Rdb file - do you think that would reset the dictionary?

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

I finally downloaded total commander in order to delete eT9Rudb.txt

However, since total commander shows the file extensions, I then saw \windows\ET9MyWords.exe on the phone

Running this program on the phone takes you to an editor that allows clear removal of entries.

Thanks!

Granted I did not provide you with the solution, but the link I provided led you to the solution and thus I feel warrants an assisted solution.

Don't you agree?

Hi Alan

Certainly assisted me in solving the problem and I thought I awarded you 100 points to credit that.

I am new to this system and don't really understand the points system, but I hope 100 is ok?

Not a problem - if you had tried to award some points, it hadn't quite worked.  You need to accept your solution as THE solution and then accept one of my comments as an assisted solution.  Presumably at some point, it will ask you how many points to award, so you can put in what you feel is acceptable.  Not had to award points before I'm afraid.
Have another go and see what happens.
Best wishes

Sorry - nowhere did I see any points being awarded, so I raised the objection.
If they were awarded, how would I get to find out about this before the question was closed and I lost the opportunity to object?
Would appreciate your guidance on this one as I am relatively new to EE.
