    No but you can do this... If you are writing something and the iPhone flags a word as misspelled that you know is not misspelled, cancel the correction 3 times and the word will be put into the dictionary.

    Ya this happens to me alot too especially cuss words.I however and starting to like it somewhat because it can finish a word for me and it can make things faster. I still do get annoyed when I send it with out reading it and I see the spell checker changed a word I did not want.

    I love that feature. I don't even have to pay attention to what I'm typing. I can press in the vicinity of a letter, and BLAM, it auto-corrects. It makes long emails less painful.

    I agree, it can be annoying sometimes, but for the most part it is very helpful and its benefits outweigh the downfalls in my opinion.

    One thing that annoys me is hell changes to he'll. I never type he'll. I wish I could edit the dictionary myself like I could on my blackberry.

    like Ash said, cancel the word 3 times & it'll add it to the dictionary
