    I really want to be able to edit the auto-correction dictionary. If I turn it off it defeates the purpose, but if I leave it on it changes my lolz to LOL

    I am looking forward to the update as I think it will be nice! As for copy and paste.... I often wonder if Apple feels if they give it to us then they won't have anything else to give us since we all want this so bad....

Who cares about that stupid autocorrect toggle ; to me its kinda useful specially when u try to type really fast it kind of like knows wut im gonna type n when im done i c the wall of text there most of the times error free . Now when u wanna write informally thats when the frustration begins. On a level from one to 10 i would give it a 7 since it can get annoyin sometimes. About the second feature the smiley.. idk i never really used them. Should be fun if it incorporated like on mail app n sms which i think it will for certain. Do we have to sign a ducking (!!!!) petition for them to add copy/paste support like those other guys did for autocorrection toggle?

    Dude, that's totally respectable. I still get a little frustrated when I have to manually correct "shot" with every other text I send out.

    That will never happen. Deep down inside no one really wants to search through the thousands of meaningless posts of newbs wanting to be the first person to post or the guy to have a three character "lol"

    I was about to say we have lax moderators, but someone was obviously paying attention and deleted that garbage. Good filtering moderators!

    I kind of like the auto-correct feature. It works very well for me. I think editing the words that it corrects to and also adding your own words would perhaps be a better feature.

    As far as the emoticons ... wouldn't those be considered picture messages, and if not then how would someone that did not have the iPhone see these icons that you send.

    I am very curious to see how these two features are going to play out.

    The google street view is going to be sweet as well. Can't wait to see how that works.

    this is just my idea...

    now that Tmobile released the G1 (android) Apple might wanna stay on top.. thus releasing features/ applications that they usually wouldn't..

    like one of the features i saw right away on the android was street view and now the iphone has it.. and same with the emoticons..

    i know its got copy and paste to so it could possibly be in the next firmware (2.3?)

    just throwing it out there since apple seems to like being above and beyond the competition...

    Sadly the auto-correct toggle is with the rest of the settings rather then attached to the keyboard itself so switching it on the fly will not be possible. This, IMO, makes the "feature" fairly cumbersome and useless.

    As for EMOcons, ..................ok

    I love the updates, but at the back of my mind I do think they are being released too quick(although I've no idea when 2.2 will be out). I also know its a choice of ours whether to update or not, but I'd like the chance to really enjoy a firmware before updating. I haven't mastered a way yet to save everythging when changing firmwares so does become a bit of a task(though enjoyable) updating the new stuff and finding some of the old no longer works. Be great to release an update say twice a year, with each update flawless and jammed with new stuff! Trouble is for me, when an update becomes available the temptation to update is massive! I might hold off a couple of the next updates, unless there's any big changes like bluetooth.
    I liked the 1.4 fw and currently enjoying 2.1. I'm sure I've had a on/off switch already for autocorrection in passtime, and I didn't feel the need to use it then.

    i find auto-correction very helpful.. helps me type fast with minimal keystroke errors. just gotta make sure to constantly add my most commonly used words.

    Turning off auto correction is a must on any FW. It's hard to explain to a hot chick why you just texted her and asked her if she has a pig.

    i hope the 2.2 firmware would be faster because the 2.1 is too slow, slow to use the cam, slow to view photos and messages and to many more things, or do i have a particular problem? This did not happen in my previous versions
