    Hey Guy's, is there a hack that would allow me to turn the anoying auto-correct feature of the iphone off without turning the spell check option off?

    Right now (as you all may know) if you turn off auto-correct (replace the words), it automatically turns off the spell check (red squiggly line) feature and you cannot have the spell check option on until you first turn on the auto-correct feature :mad:.

    Apple needs to consider completely revamping their 4 year old keyboard.

    Other platforms have smart keyboards that learn and are more flexible than the outdated iOS keyboard.

    When Apple????? :confused:

    Actually, I like the keyboard itself because it's not bulky and it does not hurt my fingers like my old BlackBerry did.

    I love it how they ask for the Mac OS you have instead of the iOS version on the actual device.

    WTF? Do you ever use an iPhone?

    If you type the word once, and hit the (X) to get rid of the auto-correct, iPhone learns it.
    If you type a word twice, iPhone learns it.

    Is that difficult?

    BTW, tens of millions of iOS users would disagree that it's the worst keyboard ever. What a load of FUD.

    I prefer the portrait to the landscape, and I have big thumbs. Exactly right, that the keyboard will learn phrases. Plus, out of respect for whoever might be reading your typing, throw in a quick review before hitting send.

    I find that quite annoying too but I do agree that it is very easy to type on anyway. Much better than that swype rubbish anyway.

    I get auto-corrected to "he'll" a few times per day, after hitting the (X) to get rid of the auto-correct each time. IPhone doesn't learn it.

    Is that difficult? WTF?

    I think "he'll/hell" is an exception.

    The reason (I think) the iPhone doesn't learn it it's because it's easier to just click the x when the iPhone suggests "he'll" and you want to type "hell" than having to look for the apostrophe when you want to type "he'll". Basically it's just easier in general to have "he'll" as default.

    Well in that case, I'm glad the brain trust made this decision for me. I didn't realize they were actually making my life easier. I'll just have to type "he'll" more often and it will come to me ;)

    All joking aside, I have a feeling it's because of the word itself: "hell". My phone doesn't correct "shell" to "she'll" automatically.
