Hi there. Yesterday I got a message that there was an update for my Google Nexus One. I installed it and it was Android 2.3.4. Anyway since the phone has installed that update, I am finding it alot harder to text/tweet. The problem is that its as if there are no words in the dictionary. Because of that "Quick Fixes (Corrects commonly typed mistakes)", "Show Suggestions (Display suggested words while typing)", and Auto-Complete do not work.

I type a word, example "hello" and if I type it wrong it comes out wrong, before the update it would auto correct/come up with a suggestion of what word it could be. Now there are no suggestions at all.

Is this a known problem with 2.3.4? Or just me? How can I fix this?

I am using the Android Keyboard by the way. Thanks

This probably doesn't help you but on my N1 which got 2.3.4 a while ago, the keyboard and suggestions work fine.

I normally use Swype but going back to the regular keyboard worked fine also.

I haven't run into this issue, but try:

Settings > Applications > Manage applications > All > Android keyboard > Clear data.

That should "reset" the keyboard app and hopefully resolve the issue.

This should do it. Failing that, a factory reset should certainly fix it.

Darn it tried the clear data as above and still not working problem.  How can I factory reset it. I love my nexus onebut getting more than slightly frustrated that I am on third phone! I keep having on-going issues with the touchpad not working freely, seizing up etc and all three have done the same thing! Grr any suggestions gladly received thanks!!
