Add, change, or delete a word in the custom dictionary

You can add words to the custom dictionary so that your BlackBerry® smartphone recognizes the word when you check spelling. Because SureType® technology uses the same dictionary, if you're using the Arabic or Russian input methods, words that you add to your custom dictionary are displayed in the list that appears when you type.

  1. On the Home screen or in a folder, click the Options icon.
  2. Click Typing and Language > Custom Dictionary.
    • To add a word to the custom dictionary, press the Menu key > New. Type a word or letter combination. Press the Enter key on the keyboard.
    • To change a word in the custom dictionary, press the Menu key > Edit. Change the word. Press the Enter key on the keyboard.
    • To delete a word from the custom dictionary, highlight the word. Press the Menu key > Delete.
