Re: What is "Dictionary Update Information" download?

More of a reply to an arlier post from an HTC One M8 owner, but may work for others.  Uninstall the Google keyboard.  I wasn't even using it, but immediately after uninstalling,  the download attempts stopped.  Hopefully it will stay gone.

I have the Casio Commando LG4TE smartphone. I also am stuck with the stupid dictionary downloading. It went away for a few days but it is back now downloading Portugese dictionary and nothing makes it stop! Somebody from Verizon needs to get on this or do I need to switch to Sprint?

Please advise ASAP!

Here's a possible fix.  I have a Droid Turbo.  I did this and so far the Dictionary Update hasn't returned.  I disabled the Google keyboard.  I then went into Settings, Language and Input, and looked at the settings for Google Voice Typing.  For some reason Languages showed both English and Portugues as defaults.  I tapped Languages and saw that Portugues was indeed checked so I unchecked.  The download notification was still in the notification bar so I tapped and help it down which brought up App Info for Download Manager (you can also get to this through Apps in Settings).  I cleared the cache and data.  I did Force Stop (you have to wait until it goes gray to know it actually stopped.  The notification went away.  I rebooted then I enabled Google Keyboard.  So far so good.

Yeah.  Stopping the Download Manager will stop the download temporarily, but as soon as you need to download something again & turn it back on, the "Dictionary Update Information" download will again show up.

Not a fix.

Yeah, you'd be right if you didn't first correct the issue that was making Download Manager open.  If you read the steps, I said that you need to uncheck the Portugues language (or possibly any second language) in Google Voice Typing.  After you do that your device won't need to update the dictionary for that language.  When you Force Stop Download Manager it will clear it out.  You can then Enable Download Manager because the problem dictionary will no longer be trying to update.  This is what I did and the problem is fixed for me.

I hate this. I am paying $$$$$ to Verizon and what do I get? A stupid warning that won't swipe away and even comes back after I force-stop the imbecile "Download Manager". Why does Verizon even HAVE a download manager? It's not like they have anything worth downloading. I KNOW I'm not on wifi (Verizon should be HAPPY I'm not on wifi!) So shut up already!

I've had the same problem. I chatted with tech support and was told to do a factory reboot of my phone. No way I'm going through that, it'll take hours to get my phone back and I've only had the thing 3 weeks.

Can Verizon PLEASE get a patch sent out for this?

Very poor service on this issue.

Whoops...worked first time. A few days later it popped back up with two updates..  Refresh didn't work. I went into download manager and forced stop. Today I got another. When I tried refresh it changed to Portuguese dictionary update. I force stopped download manager and it went away but returned a few minutes later.  Tried refresh again, it switched to Brazil dictionary update.  Force closed download manager and just waiting for it to come back again.

Can somebody at Verizon try to figure this out and fix it?  At some point it is going to catch a WiFi connection and I don't want some virus spreading through my phone with this download.
