    so just say lol instead?
    All you have to do is hit the x by the attempted auto capitilization, instead of hitting space/send
    after 2 or 3 times, the phone will learn that you don't want LOL and will stop trying to correct you

    im personally not a big fan of lol anyway. I always just go with a good old haha

    You can turn auto-correct off if you don't jailbreak.

    yes, this is one of the silliest bugs in the iPhone OS. If it was capable of learning "lol" it wouldn't be an issue, but this is the one word that the OS won't learn...

    the LOL vs lol issue is annoying. It takes a lot to get a LOL out of me and iPhone likes to just give them away by default. Definitely does not learn

    I agree. I thought the iPhone was supposed to learn these things? My old crappy flip phone learned T9 words....

    If you're male, and over 15, you shouldn't be using 'LOL' anyway.

    And if you're over 15, you probably shouldn't still be confusing "your" and "you're" either.

    Haha. I hate it too.
    If I use LOL it feels like I'm screaming it. It's just loud.
    Now lol just seems like a nice friendly gesture.
    It bugs me too.

    I agree. The LOL is obnoxious and can make something look funnier than its supposed to be. I tend to stick with "haha."

    At least it changes it to "LOL."

    I hate the spell checkers that change it to "Lol."

    I mean, what the heck is that?

    My phone capitalizes "LOL" randomly. It is really annoying.

    I feel like Haha is beginning to eclipse lol. The auto-cap LOL is extremely wrong in most instances. If i wanted to SCREAM lol, I would go with something that would emphasize how much more funny the conversation was with something like rofl, lmao,. etc... Cheers for 3.0? Maybe the new OS will be able to learn gooder'.

    I guess it's a good thing he didn't get them wrong then, and obviously you did.
