    I've been reading how the new 3.0 OS has been a little less lenient on the auto-correction. I'm not sure if other people are encountering this problem, but I'm experiencing an extremely annoying problem. Whenever I type the letters "im" it automatically corrects it to "IM" in all capitals. Not "I'm" or "i'm", and I cannot even figure out how to NOT automatically correct it to just leave it how it is. Has anybody found a work-around for this? It's absolutely ridiculously annoying and is enough for me to just turn off auto-correct (even though I really find it useful at other times).

    If you keep correcting it it will figure it out.

    I've reset my dictionary and everything. It still insists on correcting it, no matter how many times I tell it not to...

    Solved it! In case anybody else has a problem like this, I had a contact with the last name set as IM. So this means that the new 3.0 OS adds contact names to the dictionary automatically.
