    I am actually interested in the Lumia 1520(I'd go for the 1320 if the camera was at least Pureview on the 920 level) because typing on my 1020's screen is a bit annoying.

    The screen is a bit small for me so it is rather annoying to constantly try and type long messages out because I make tons of mistakes and sometimes I hit send before I realize I made a typo.

    With that said, is there a way to manually add words to the dictionary? I think it is supposed to learn how you type over time correct? But I've been typing similar phrases and I use some slang/cuss words(Don't judge me lol) quite a bit and for whatever reason the word doesn't appear in my auto-correct/fill.

    It's like the Phone sensors me lol. I accidentally stubbed my toe today and I was telling my friend about it and I said "It hurts like a B word lol* and of course that word wasn't in there but BIRCH was...and I've never even used the birch and I have more than enough typed the B word enough for it to learn it.

    This is probably one of the few annoyances that I have with my Windows Phone because even when it does learn words or the way I spell it, it still doesn't have the preferred word first or second...it's usually way down on the auto-correct list.

    Is there a way to fix this and add words manually to the dictionary?

    Try using predictive words instead typing out entire word. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    When you type a new word, to add it to the dictionary, click on the word it gets marked. Then you can see that one appearing with a + sign in the autocorrect list. Tap on that to add it.

    Yes, just enter the "new" Word and press the "+" about the new Word.

    Ah I got it now. That helps a lot.

    However this doesn't work for swear words I see. Any reason why?
