Is there a way to add or change the words that the iphone auto-corrects? Specifically how it capitalizes "LOL". I hate it. Is there a way to change these ?

I don't know where the actual dictionary file is stored. However, I do know that the dictionary is dynamic...always changing based on your typing style. I've found that it doesn't try to correct my spelling or capitalization of words that I constantly hit the 'x' of next to the correction bubble. Try this a few times, and see if it takes the hint.

Yeah, the iPhone is supposed to adapt to your typing. If you use USF a few times and hit the x on USC, its should stop correcting it.

Are you saying anyone has had the iphone STOP correcting you to LOL? cus I sure haven't and I x it out every single time. along with USC and a few others....

Mine doesnt pop up for LOL anymore. Im pretty sure it stopped after like the 2nd time of telling it to.

I read somewhere that if you want to add a word to the dictionary, you have to correct it three times. This will add the word you MEANT to your individual dictionary. I've done it on quite a few words.-DoocesWild

I just opened up notepad and typed out USF USF USF USF USF USF USF.. lol. each time USC popped up.. same thing with LOL

Do you click the X on the blue corrected word that pops up to get rid of it?

yea the notes thing didn't work for me either. I also *hate* the "LOL"

Hm, it auto-corrects usf to USC always, but it remembers to leave USF alone. Just learn to use caps and youll be fine!

I would love to see a personal dictionary that you can add slang and words to like other cell phones feature. Anyone think this could be a possibility in the near future??

What I want is support for other languages... is it possible to port cocoaAspell to iPhone?

also forgot to mention, even with my new iphone (I got a 4-->8gig exchange) I still did the same thing: opened up notepad and typed USF USF USF USF USF exing it every time and it still corrects me to USC, as well as LOL

I would like to delete words from dictionary... I am from Poland and its kinda crapy when u want to type 'na' ('on' in polish;p) and the dictionary is puting 'ms' insted of it. I typed 'na' 125 times in notes and it worked! iPhone is learning but not very fast ;p

I just tried typing USF and USC came up the first time, I clicked the X and typed USF again and it worked.
There is a problem somewhere though. I remember for a long time no one could type "haha"
