Sick of getting different words when you are trying to type other 4 letter words?
Every time you type a certain 4 letter word you always get another word that you don't want... On older iPhone firmware all you had to do was hit the X when it tried changing the word and it would learn the correct word after three tries. Well that feature went away with firmware 2.0 but there is a work around...
Go into Google search bar in Safari... then type in the word you want it to remember. Two or three times should do it. Now exit out and go try creating a SMS message with that word... should work flawlessly.
Enjoy being able to type F#$# now!

Another way to do this is to create a contact with the, ahem, colorful language contained in it. Create a dummy contact and I do believe that you can then in the notes section type all of the 4 letter words you normally use and it will show up with no other suggestions...like "duck".

I would have to agree that entering the slang words into Safari's Google window (3 times minimum) appears to be the only way to get the word to "stick.". I wasn't having any luck with the dummy contact.
FYI: the only abbreviation that I can't seem to get to stick is "PC.". Trying to type "PC" (lower or upper case) will *always* bring up "of" as a suggestion. I guess there's no way around that one seeing the close proximity of the keys involved.
