I feel stupid because I've been an android user for 4 years (and I'm computer savvy by nature), however on the Springboard when I type in my username on a website it wants to autocorrect. I have figured out how to add those names to the dictionary but I would rather just have autocorrect turned off completely rather than wonder why I'm getting an Unknown User message on site I log into because they decided I didn't know what I was typing. I've looked in the Settings but I haven't run across it yet. Although I will admit some of the corrected names are hilarious... it's not funny when you are trying to do something and you get flustered because the keyboard thinks you are dumb.
Hi there luvduchovny!
I know the auto-correct can be annoying; the steps below should allow you to disable it.
Change Swype keyboard settings How to change Swype keyboard settings
To change Swype keyboard settings, follow these steps:

2. Tap Settings.
3. Tap Locale and Text.
4. Tap Swype.
5. Tap to select or deselect the following options:

· Vibrate on keypress
6. Tap to edit the following settings:

Hope this helps!
Took me a while to find what you were talking about because on the Springboard (Android 3.2 honeycomb) you have to go:
Go to Menu
Tap Language & Input
Tap Configure Input Methods
Tap Settings (under Swype)
Tap Word Suggestion
Uncheck Auto-correction (and I guess Word Suggestion also, but I'll leave that one for now)
The rest of the settings can be found at the Settings (under Swype) level
I thank you for at least giving me a start for finding where all these goodies were hidden. I think you help was for Gingerbread or earlier.
You were very helpful!
You're welcome and thank you! You are correct- those are the steps for Gingerbread.
I'm glad to hear it worked out!
