    What are your most annoying iPhone typos? By this I mean when the iPhone changes one word to another word, or when you're slightly off and hit a wrong key and it changes the whole word to something different.

    My most hated typos:

    ____ to duck

    for to doe

    I also hate when it changes:

    mins (as in minutes) to mind - 9/10 its faster to type out minutes than to type mins, have it change to mind and retype it (assuming you miss the x bubble).

    What are your most hated typos?

    Haha! Same here, for some reason having lol as "LOL" makes me sound so... non-internet-savvy.

    ms instead of ma
    male instead of make

    There's probably a stack of them.

    "ny" corrected to "by", at least when I use one of the job search apps.

    Very annoying when searching for something in New York

    no doubt. i hate that... I'm like. well its funny. but its certainly not LOL funny. I feel like I'm that annoying person that fake laughs to hard at something mildly funny or attention.

    Then again. I just might be over-thinking this.

    lmao!!!

    lol to LOL and ducking/ducked etc have got to be the most annoying. oh and if you put xx at the end of a text (to a female) then it changes it to fx and I only ever notice when its sending!!!

    I'm sure I read somewhere (may have been on here or elsewhere) that after x number of presses of the cross it will eventually ignore the correction. Any idea if this is true as I've clicked the cross countless times to LOL but it still does it... I would loose the auto correct completely but as annoying as it can be it is still quite useful :(

    "w/" to "a/". I like not having to type "with" but "w" is automatically corrected to "a" for some reason. "a/" doesn't even mean anything. :confused:

    Another is when trying to type "eleven". The "v" is nearly impossible to hit. I go to 7-Eleven every morning for breakfast and input the transaction in PocketLint, so it's an every day thing for me. Even though I capitalize the "E" on eleven it still won't let me type it right the first time.

    I believe it only changes if it has the alternative spelling in its dictionary.

    If it doesn't know the word you keep changing to, it won't take the change.

    Amen to this one. The only time I'll type hell is when I'm already frustrated about something so this just puts the icing on the cake.
