    I've come up with a small list of words my iphone's keyboard won't spell and its extremely frustrating. by saying won't spell i mean at some point while in the process of spelling the word, a letter in that word cannot be used on the keyboard and if i glide my finger over the keyboard that letter cannot be selected. anybody else have problems with this? it happens on both my 3g and 2g iphone. i have started a thread or two about this in the past in iphone troubleshooting but nobody replied. i would put up a video but i don't have a video recorder

    I can totally see where not being able to type "yokie" on your iPhone would persist as a problem. I would post a video if I were you.

    haha i knew some jackass would say something like that. this happens with alot more words then just those... those are just the ones i figured out, its like the keyboard looses touch sensation when certain combinations of letters are spelled

    If i type 'mej' and try and make 'o' the next letter it wont let me. When i hit the 'o' it just types I or P instead. Is this the problem your having?

    I see what you mean. I can select the right letter, but more often than not it chooses the wrong key instead, even when I press very carefully. It's weird.

    I think Apple has a problem with geese honestly.
    Why would it let you type duck but not goose?

    Apple is RACIST!!!!

    Here's a cool little trick: you can easily add words (with capitalization!) to the iPhone's dictionary by adding them as contacts in address book. I added mine in a "Spelling" category, which I manually exclude from my own "All" category (a collection of all my categories) ... So I never see them in my phone book, but they're there ... ;)

    Yay for PITA workarounds. If only we didn't have to resort to such BS methods to accomplish seemingly simple tasks (e.g., adding entries - including proper names - to the dictionary) ... :rolleyes:

    Am I the only one who sees this as a plus rather than a minus? The iPhone keyboard assumes what letter you're more than likely to type next, and expands the responsive area of the keyboard.

    99.9% of the time, it works great. The times it doesn't, just send yourself a quick email with the word you wish to type, and the iPhone will add it to it's dictionary. Even easier than adding fake contacts.

    Goose. Goose, goose. Mejor, tomar, tomay.

    tomar
    Tomat
    Tomay

    :confused: yet again, I have no problem typing any of it. I'm running 2.0.2, BTW, but I have no idea if it makes a difference.


    And yes, I like the auto-correct too, but I don't think that's what they're talking about.
