    The Iphone has presented its-self as an all around smartphone, but one thing that I know pisses everyone off is that swear words aren't in the dictionary. Making words like hell correct to he'll and ect. This phone is mainly for adults and it is by time apple started to treat us like adults.

    Go into notes and type them a few times canceling the word that gets suggested. The words will be added to the dictionary. Then you don't have to worry about it replacing F*** with Duck and other such silly things.

    im able to type a message without paper, without wires, and send it through the air to someone in a matter of seconds. i dont have to get up and take them a message or even call them, im not going to complain about having to check and see if im cussing or yelling about a duck in he'll. seems your reaching for something to complain about with this poll

    Here's a better idea: just turn auto-correction off!

    BINGO!!

    The first thing I do is turn off auto-correction. If you're sending text messages it's probably to someone you know so if there's a spelling mistake they can prob understand what you're saying anyway and if not they'll just ask. If you're posting online, sending an email you should re-read before you send for grammer and spelling anyway it doesn't take that long. I think everyone is so dependent on spellcheck now. I've seen articles in the newspaper, magazines, online, etc. and you can always tell when the person used spellcheck because they meant to spell thorough but got through instead or mis-spelt threw and got throw, which is not the past tense. LOL I bet a quick read would have caugth it especially when it's a big publication.

    If this is your biggest concern with the iPhone then the iPhone is heads and shoulders above the rest of the phones out there

    My biggest problem is I am concerned that the Apple logo on the back isn't big enough... just kidding

    Being that the phone will learn new words after what 3 attempts, how is this even a issue?

    I don't use curse words so this topic has no relevance to me. BUT- I do have a question. In the last option 'Meh whatever I don't curse anyway' what does the word 'Meh' mean? I see that quite often in internet postings, and am unfamiliar with it.

    Bad

    I wish they would put the words in the auto-correct.

    But at the same time I definitely understand why they don't have it working like that.
