    The autocorrect on this phone is really pissing me off. It's too helpful to turn off, but it won't stop replacing curse words. I know this has been discussed before, but I have tried the commonly suggested tips of putting a contact with the name "*****" into the address book but it hasn't worked. Has anyone else successfully gotten the iPhone to stop autocorrecting curses?

    Someone told me to go into the Notes app and just type the word like 6 times or so and eventually the phone will "learn" it. I tried this for my dog's name and it worked. So now when I start typing her name, the auto-complete comes up. It did not do this before I tried that trick.
