my iPhone seems to think that "Tgats" = "thats" and EVERY time i don't do the word EXACTLY right, i get Tgats..









now i know how the iPhone keyboard works so please just take this post for what it is, a joke

I get that too. Or should I say, I get tgat too. Drives me nuts. I wish that the spelling dictionary were editable - I'd remove that word and and the word "foe" which I always get instead of "for".

If it's really totally annoying, you can reset the dictionary.

My old phone (before an exchange) used to do that for "for"... made it "Gor" every time. I think somehow you accidentally chose that one time and it stuck. Very annoying.

Like Impaler said, you can reset the dictionary. Or, you could try cancelling out every time it suggests "Tgats" and after the 5th time it shouldn't offer that spelling anymore.

LOL is the worst. It makes me look incredibly obnoxious when the joke wasn't that funny.

there's also another way that involves a cricket mallet and a dead baby seal.
