Dear Berry

Hello again readers! Dear Berry here to once again to open up the mailbag and clear up any BlackBerry woes you may have. This week's question comes from Mr.Thompkins who asks:

I am writing to see if there is any way to clear out numbers and information you typed from suggestion words. Sometimes I might have to write down account numbers while typing and the PlayBook remembers them and suggests them when typing.
Thank you in advance. 

For anyone looking to remove the saved data the PlayBook keeps for its suggestions keep reading for a quick tip everyone should know!

Dear Mr. Thompkins,

I'm sorry you are having this issue I can understand you do not want to have certain words or numbers appear in the predictive text. When the suggestion appears on top of the keyboard press and hold it (the word you wish to delete) and the option to remove should pop up. 

Remove predictive text

Please let me know if this trick helps.


Now Mr. Thompkins informed me that he had already figured this out but this is a great tip I discovered in our forums that I thought I would pass along. There's always something new to learn with each visit.
