    Just curious? I was one of many complaining at first, but now I kind of take it back.

    Kept mine on. I appreciate sometimes it can be annoying but it's much more useful than it isn't.

    Not me.

    I love auto-correct. I can type really fast on my iPhone, and auto-correct is a big reason.

    But I'm glad it's an option for people who don't like it. The more options, the better, IMO.

    I disabled auto-correct since the beginning! I've ALWAYS had a jailbroken phone (and unlocked), and I really dislike auto-correct. I don't make many mistakes, and sometimes it changes to words that I don't want

    I've left mine to on.

    I love the auto correct and I have kinda fat fingers so I tend to make mistakes.

    I turned mine off.

    If I only sent emails/sms in English it would have been fine…

    I kept mine on, although I do email/SMS in languages other than English, like German.

    Sometimes the iPhone unnecessarily puts ä's, ö's and ü's (thanks Mac OS X input source manager!) in words where they are not needed, but still, I keep it on.... :cool:

    I type pretty fast on my phone, so auto correct comes in handy.
    It's not 100% accurate all the time, but it's a nice helper.

    It corrects me more than it gets a word wrong.

    Kept mine on! I really think it helps me type much faster. I use my iPhone a lot for work e-mail and I don't want to look like a big dummy! :D

    I keep mine on, since the update I feel like it has improved and the non-sense has reduced :)

    On.

    9 out of 10 times it gives me what I want.

    Why lose that up because I have to hit 'x' for 10% of the times it pops up?

    Kept mine on. Has saved me many many times when I am typing fast. Sure, there are times when it is frustrating, but it has fixed my misspellings much more than it has frustrated me.

    On

    Kept mine on. Crucial to be able to type quickly.

    Looking forward to that feature making onto the main Mac OS.
