    I've spent hours searching the web trying to find find a way for the iphone to recognize the word "hell", and not autocorrect it to "HE'LL"

    I've tried the following with no success:

    1)Added hell to dictionary (using the international keyboard trick & it works for other words so I know I am doing it correctly)
    2)Added hell to contacts and contact notes
    3)Added hell to notes in my iphone
    4)Searched for hell in safari web browser
    5)Continuously x'd out he'll & my phone still hasn't learned hell yet (mind you my phone is 2 yrs old now)

    If anyone can provide a fix for this, I will be forever grateful....

    I don't think anyone has come up with a fix for that. Seems to be the one word that it is stuck constantly correcting.

    There's a lot of words it doesn't learn.

    Well, with the word "hell" the problem is that people could be trying to type "he'll", and it's a "swear word" according to conservative vernacular. Other words like "shvt", "fvck", etc. will eventually stop being corrected but will NEVER be suggested.

    If you text as much as I do, trust me you'd care When you're able to correct almost every other word with the phone besides that one, it's really frustrating. Especially when you are borderline OCD about s*** like this hahaha
