    Default Discovered a bug today
    I'm pretty sure that I haven't seen anything related to this bug, but even if it is already known, fact remains that I discovered it for myself today. Although again I am pretty sure that I am the first person to post this here. I also scanned other forums and found nothing of such.

    Now, I tried this on two other iPhones 3G (so total of 3) and the bug exists in each case
    For the record, all phones are running the latest firmware.
    Here we go... when typing a text message (with the English dictionary), try to type the word "skar".

    ............. you can't do it!

    it defaults to "skat" BEFORE the dictionary has a chance to even do any sort of correction. Whether it should do the correction or not is completely irrelevant because you cannot write the character "r" anyway. The phone will simply NOT ALLOW you to type "r" after the "a". It always enters a "t" instead of the "r" no matter how long you wait to press "r" and no matter how precise you are with touching "r". Remember, you are not pressing the space bar or anything else. You just want to press "r" after the character "a" while typing the word "skar".
    Try it!

    BTW, for those of you wondering, here is the definition of the word "skar":

    Skar

    Skar\, Skare \Skare\, a. [From the root of scare.] Wild; timid; shy. [Prov. Eng. & Scot.]

    haha, well it's known that it does that for a few words. But I'll give you this much, I didn't know it would do it to skar (nor did I know that the word existed.)

    It's hardly a bug. The word just isn't in the dictionary. Delete the 't', type 'r' and tap on the word.

    at004 and redcard: i think you guys missed the point

    this has nothing to do with autocorrection.
    the letter "r" cannot be typed before autocorrection ever has a chance to kick in. This has NOTHING to do with the word not being in the dictionary.
