    It autocorrects lame to lane every time unless I capitalize it......

    The iPhone dictionary gets on my nerves. I ONCE typed 'he' and now it auto corrects he to 'he' every single damn time.

    thats pretty lane.
    but seriously, just dismiss the little autocorrection box that comes up with "lane" instead of "lame" and it will eventually learn that lame is actually a word.

    because in steve jobs' mind if you're using an iphone, you're way too freaking cool to ever use the word lame.

    Honestly, the autocorrect system on the iphone is balls. i rmb on firmware version 3.X.X it used to autocorrect "lol" to "LOL" everytime.

    What happened to that feature where we could add words manually to the dictionary?

    I hear that the Droid phones all process lame automatically.

    Because your iPhone knows best. And it is embarrassed... to be lame.

    I actually find iPhone's autocorrect pretty useful unless I want to type a curse word, than it's really annoying.
