T9 dictionary editor for a Smartphone

Thursday, April 19th, 2007

I have problems with my T9 on my Smartphone. For example, it seems to like the word "diem1t" rather than "didn't". Someone must have written a dictionary editor, right?

  • Pocket PC dictionary editor - runs on the device, but doesn't want to run on my iMate SP5 (crashes with an exception).
  • T9 Editor - doesn't like the T9AW.UDB my phone has (crashes with an exception).
  • msT9ed - also doesn't support the new format, but loads it with some weird looking data.

In other news, shareware authors could do to handle exceptions better.

Any suggestions?

I have an i-mate Smartphone 5, and have had no end of trouble with messaging on it. It was about two months after I got it that I managed to make it sync with our Exchange server at work, even though my old SP2 could do it fine.

PXTs (multimedia messages) were eventually made to go, but lately I have been unable to receive any more than the notification I have messages to download. Looked into it tonight: "There is not enough free space for message downloading. Please free up some space and try again."

The solution? You're not going to believe it... "go to Internet Explorer and delete your temporary files". I don't know how many times I've heard people told to do that to fix routing problems on the Internet that obviously have nothing to do with it, and on a completely different device it turns out to solve the problem. Go figure.

(Other solutions seem to be available; either upgrade firmware, which will no doubt cause pain, or edit a registry key.)
