    Just wondering if anyone has found a way to manually edit the iPhone's built-in dictionary yet ... ? I know it's possible to add words to the dictionary by adding them to the Address Book but even that trick doesn't seem to be working now. The problem? Ever since I installed 3.0b2, my iPhone no longer auto-corrects its to it's ... I don't know why they changed it, because I would assume that it's is far more commonly used than its.

    Anyone else experiencing this odd behavior with 3.0b2? Any workarounds?

    Rather than XX -> FX I'm getting XX -> CD

    Interesting.

    I don't know if it's easy to edit its dictionary, but I don't think it's going to happen. I think it's a problem with decoding its database.

    Yes, I was actually trying to use as many variation of "its" in that reply.

    Sometimes Apple includes variations on a word typed to get to the correction you want. I would recommend trying to type soemthing like its and see if it gives you the form you want. For example, try itss.

    I also noticed this today when I was typing a text, they got a lot more lenient on the typing. I actually liked it better when it corrected me more.

    Yeah, I've got to say, this 'bug' is really starting to irritate me. Maybe if it had always been like this, but to change it arbitrarily ... ? :mad:

    Well, if I put XX and I get CD I click the cross and it doesn't seem to happen again... at least for a while. We'll see.

    Latest was XXX to ZZZ :)
