    With the new OS 3.0, I've found that if you type in lol for short, the iPhone won't correct it. I know that's kinda random but it's pretty cool because that annoyed me a little bit at times.

    I thought that got fixed earlier. I was a beta tester so maybe I'm just thinking of that. Anyway, I agree it's a welcome improvement.

    also corrects "fir" to "for" REALLY appreciate that one. Don't intend to use the word "fir" all that often.

    Yeah I used to get so angry when it would auto convert that. I only capitalize LOL when something is actually funny. "lol" is more of a filler.

    yeah I hate when it does that.

    LOL is definitely for when something is really funny, lol is more of a casual small laugh or smile

    It's gotten alot better with what it does and doesnt correct.

    I can finally act hardcore and curse through text messages now without waking up and realizing that I sent some innocent animal loving ducking message.
