    Two of the things that were in the beta code were a customizable dictionary and file syncing for OS4 for the iPhone, but I'm not seeing either of these on a 3GS or in iTunes respectively. Were these two things scrapped entirely or have they quietly become iPhone 4-only features?

    What specifically do you mean by "file syncing"? do you mean the ability, like the iPad, to be able to have Apps with a local file storage, and copy files to and from the app via the devices "Applications" tab in iTunes? If so, it should be there, but only for apps that support it. I have AirSharing and iCab, and both support File Sharing.

    Editable dictionary is there actually. File sharing in what capacity?

    FYI: it's settings > keyboard > edit use dictionary.

    Custom dictionary only available when you add a international keyboard, so just add any other keyboard and the custom dictionary will be there.

    OK, so whats the use of the customizable dictionary? I added a word to it, but it keeps marking it misspelled.

    People think that it is a way to add words to the auto-correction or spelling dictionary but after doing some research its not, i found this explanation in another forum:
    the user dictionary is designed to help people writing Japanese or Chinese. It allows users to pre-set which Chinese characters appear when they type a phonetic version of a word. It's commonly used for names of places and people and is a standard feature of most character based input systems.

    Entering words in here will neither add them to the auto-correct dictionary, stop them from being underlined in red or enable any Text Expander like features.*

    I have Japanese kana keyboard, and the emoji keyboard. I've had the editable dictionary since I got 4.0, both in GM and release.

    Well, that just sucks. Come on Steve, how about a customizable dictionary in a truer sense of the word?

    Yup... Japanese afforded me the custom dictionary
    option. As soon as I deleted it, it was gone.

    I have the dictionary with additional keyboards activated. I was able to go in and add words to it by clicking the + sign in the upper right corner, the next time I went to ad another word all were gone and now there is no way to add any more, it's just a blank screen.

    Again guys it doesn't work in the way you think it does even if you add a Chinese or Japanese keyboard. So, there is simply no point unless you plan to use it for what it was designed. Adding words there do nothing in terms of it not flagging that word or attempting to change the spelling.
