    Anyone else getting annoyed with the stupid spell check in this thing?? Almost every time I type hour it's replaced with the word 'journey'. Seriously.. wtf?

    And why can't we type hell without it trying to stick in the apostrophe?

    I can't wait for the jailbreak to finally come out so I can disable this stupid spell check altogether.

    I got so damn sick of auto-correct I always had it off on my iPhone. I think there is an option to turn it off by now, but before that you had to turn it to a foreign language so it wouldn't even bother trying to correct it. :p

    I wish it'd let me set my own auto-corrects.

    I want "im" to be autocorrected into "I'm"

    I've not gotten around the "he'll" problem on my touch.

    The others have gotten better if I take the time to X out the sample choice.

    Now i have to try hour to see, I did hiur and got hour. I will have to try it on the ipad later. If the kid will share. Haha to that one. Hurry up next Friday!

    Sometimes my I'm corrects, but not if I back up and type it. I actually find it wierd.

    So is it way different from the iPhone/touch do you think or maybe they have learned your ways better?

    Oh! lol... I had no idea. Thanks :)

    FWIW, it's when I spell hour correctly that is changes it to journey. Doesn't happen every time, but enough that it's getting annoying. Definitely a bug.

    It was too early of an hour (stayed btw) to spell it correctly! Lol!!

    I'm glad you are going to be able to turn it off since you didn't know. I thought about doing that for awhile, but in this touch without a case I really suck at typing on it.

    But maybe they are just telling ya that an hour isn't long enough for the journey??? :D
