    So I spent the entire day updating my iPhone (I'm not even kidding, it was such a pain to get my iMac to recognize that my iPhone was plugged into it, I had to reinstall Snow Leopard twice before it would install iOS 4 on my iPhone.)

    And it would appear that one of the coolest features from the beta was removed...

    remember the custom dictionary?

    I can't seem to find this anywhere.

    So, anyone know where it is or was it truely removed?

    This has been in a thread from earlier. I am not really sure where though. Search!

    I've read in a few places that the GM took away the functionality. :(

    It only appears if you have an international keyboard enabled.

    ... Where? I turned on the Greek keyboard but I still don't see a user dictionary option.

    I'll admit that the feature never sounded very Apple-esque (it looked too... Complicated... It didn't work with the "Just Works" atmosphere,) but I still can't believe they took away such a useful feature.

    Sorry. It seems that it only appears if you have Japanese enabled (either one). I assumed it was for all other international keyboards as well. Sorry again.

    ...

    It doesn't seem to work at all, I tried adding the words "hell" and "its" to the dictionary but the iPhone still insists on correcting them to "he'll" and "it's".

    I don't believe its purpose is what you think it is for.

    Yeah, based on the context I think it's more for doing Japenese characters in shorthand or something.
