    God. I HATE that. It does it all the time for me too. I think it picks the more common of the two words.

    Try resetting the keyboard dictionary.

    Eh?

    I wish I could just make a shortcut for it but so can't be a shortcut for so

    Just keep using it. It will learn your typing and eventually, it will turn out relatively perfect typing, no matter how "off" you are. If it says "so" when you mean "do" (or visa versa), just click the "x" on the popup. It will learn what you are meaning to type.

    Don't give up on this. It's one of the iPhone/iPad's greatest features and works better than any other that I've encountered (incl: BlackBerry and Android). The more you type, the better it gets. When you clear the menory, you have to start all over again... so think twice before you do that.

    Hated that also but after correcting it a couple times it's fine now

    It does that with quite few words. The one that really annoys me personally is "its". It always changes it to "it's".

    I trying turning off auto-correct while leaving spell check on, but then for some reason it doesn't mark the words.

    Spell check alone will simply underline incorrectly spelled words.

    That's how I had it set. It doesn't seem to work most of the time.

    In this vain, has anyone had trouble actually hitting that X? Every time I have an autocorrect that I don't want and try and hit the X it just replaces it anyway. I don't think I have huge fingers but I do have relatively big hands.

    Small hands, given up on the X.

    You could make a shortcut that changes 'ss' into 'so.'

    The only problem is that you actually would adapt to that and start typing 'ss' when you're on a computer...
