Ever since i got my 4S I've always had it off, but I've given it a little test run on both my iPhone and my Macbook.. So how many of you have it on as well?

I leave it on, sometimes it gets things wrong - but more often it does correct mistakes.

I leave it on.

Yes, it gets a bit annoying when it incorrectly changes something.

But it's more annoying when I type something in wrong. (as it happens more often)

I've had mine on since I got my first touch in 2008, and I love it. I type really fast with it on especially, and iOS 5 has added better correcting for every day typing too.

On. If you trust it, you can type very fast with it. However, it is probably best to "trust but verify" by reading your texts and emails after writing them.

I have it on. Sometimes, for uncommon words, it can be resisting, but it's more useful.

I keep a Bluetooth keyboard at work and can therefore often type much faster and more accurately. I do, however, have autocorrect turned on when using the software keyboard.

I first had it on, then turned it off for a while but that made it a lot harder to text even though I kind of liked it off. Now I have it back on and can actually text words without looking at the keys.

I leave it on, but boy does it piss me off when it insists on changing something I don't want corrected, especially when I am in a hurry typing something.

I leave it on all the time, I think it's really useful and it works really well.

I hate it when you type a completely valid word and it changes it anyway. It also makes me look uneducated by changing "its" to "it's" when the former is correct.
