Auto spelling correction

When I am texting, my phone automaticaly replaces words it thinks are mispelled. How can I turn off the auto replacment but still have it suggest replacment words.

 

Many times it replaces words that are not misspelled, especially names of people.

I have had some trouble with this.  Apparently while using Swype, proof reading is serious business!  LOL  So I have been using the swype keyboard and it has been adding in words it shouldn't and words that do not make sense.  I am thinking baout trying hte android keyboard for a while to test this. Good luck.

gregwga50,

 

I would be more than happy to find a way to turn the auto correction setting off, or perhaps change the setting to where it only suggests.  I need to know what Make and Model phone you have.
