    when you are typing and it suggests a word, pressing the "x" to get the suggestion to go away is supposed to make the phone learn the word. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. As far as I know there isn't a way to manually add words to the dictionary.

    keep trying... if you type your word and decline the suggestion enough times, it will eventually learn them...

    another thing i found is that it will learn words found in your address book more easily - so that's good with my name and friends' nicknames etc

    :D
