Please provide option to exclude contact name/email from automatically added into swype dictionary. With huge list of contact (like gmail, facebook contacts), there are lot of times the word is replaced by contact name/email address, which is not the original intention. Maybe some will like, but for me, I better tap first the name/email that I want to be included into dictionary.

Second suggestion is to exclude suggestion words for tapping number, When i tap "2", the selected suggestion is "2moro". Most of the times what I meant is number.. Please stop make word suggestion for number or at least the number is the one automatically selected.

Is there any update on this request?

This is something that we're looking at resolving in the next revision of the beta test.

funny thing other than automatically adding names.

my contacts all have extra 2 recurring letters.

example:

jed - jjjeeeddd
ivan - iiivvvaaannn

and so on. lol. it's funny at first, then it got pissing.

The automatically adding of contact names to the dictionary is a major problem with Swype. Also a problem is that even after I remove a contact's name from my dictionary, it somehow comes back again the next time I use the phone. It's incredibly frustrating. If there are names that I type often, fine, I'd be happy to have them in my dictionary. But when "to" automatically shows up as "ryo" EVERY time, it's just annoying.
