This should be big news for lots of people. Not for me.

In other news, "its" no longer auto corrects to "it's". This makes me angry!

EDIT: Beta 4 restores the "its" to "it's". Now it's perfect :)

This is not a bad thing. I don't always use "it's" so it sorta aggravated me that if I wrote "its" it automatically wrote that.

To each their own, I guess.

I love that lol stops going to LOL. And yeah, I noticed it's and I am a bit annoyed.

You guys never "programmed" that out of the dictionary before this? Truly annoying ones like that I always made sure to eliminate after every restore.

You mean by hitting the X 3 times or whatever? If so, I Xed out LOL several thousand times to no avail.

You have to do it 6 times in a row if memory serves. Do it in notepad. Gonna go try it now because for some inexplicable reason my newly restored iPhone is correcting "as" to "A's"

Stupid iPhone.

Ok ^^^ that no longer works for me... tried it from several apps.

Why is it changing as to A's? Highly annoying.

I'm still on the first beta but I have never been able to stop the phone from correcting lol to LOL. I just tried and mine isn't correcting as to A's. That is odd

It doesn't change as to A's for me maybe it's a V1 thing, I also noticed it does not auto correct the four letter words you can't say on TV either.

You can try this

Go into Google search bar in Safari... then type in the word you want it to remember. Two or three times should do it. Now exit out and go try creating a SMS message with that word... should work flawlessly.
In 2.2.1 safari would refresh the dictionary much better than any other method I found.

Lot's of weird typing stuff corrected with 3.0: my phone'd never type various letters in sequence.... like two r's....it always typed rE , I'd have to correct...there were numerous others....when typing the slash it'd automatically correct almost whatever I tried to type in after the slash...when I'd abbreviate say, Th for thursday....it'd replace the h with something else always....
Anyway, all is straightened1
REALLY liking 3.0 guys!
This version runs smoother than my 2.2.1

Yeah, that used to work. Doesn't now in 3.0. I've tried to do it in several apps to no avail.
