    If you keep correcting it eventually the phone will remember.

    Just to clarify, you are aware you used a lower-case 'i' where it should have been upper in the above sentence- twice- right?

    I was trying to think of a place I've seen the 'i' capitalized when it shouldn't have been, and am drawing a blank. Do you have an example?

    Anytime an 'i' stands alone it should always be capitalized. I like that when I write the word 'I' there's no need to hit the caps arrow, the program does it automatically.

    bams50 is correct. It's correcting it for you because a capital I is grammatically correct. You can tap the "x" that appears next to the capital I if you prefer it to be lower case.

    And that's what i hate to do. I would have love to use it at the beginning of a sentence but i am no school teacher. And the other option of disabling SUGGESTION is unthinkable.

    Just curious - why do you insist on a lower case letter "i"? It's grammatically incorrect. You don't have to be a school teacher to use it correctly.

    And while we're on the grammar topic, that should be "you're correct", because the sentence is stating "you are correct." :D

    Very taboo to start a sentence with "and". Not stated anywhere you shouldn't per say. However, it is frowned upon.

    No, that would also be correct, because breaking it down would be saying "you are right."

    I just used the wrong word on my first post.
