I don't know if all phones autocorrect the exact same way, but what is your most annoying autocorrect?

Mine are "so" corrected to "do", and "if" corrected to "of". Why would you correct a word that is spelled correctly?
I look back at some of my posts & just shake my head. Probably 95% of my posts are done from my phone. I try to catch the errors, but you know how it is.

You can set your phone to do that?? Can you tell me how? My most annoying thing is when I type just it comes out JIST. Call caps, like that. It drives me up a flippin wall! And "so" and "do" is also one of my peeves.

Ro, you have iPhone don't you? I need to know how to set mine too!
I do know it sort of adds a word to dictionary if you constantly uncorrect an autocorrect, but not with all words. I just don't know how it all works, but it makes me mad. I just rest assure of the fact that you guys know what I meant & that it's not my fault.

The one that drives me the most nuts is changing I'd to is. Sometimes I have to change it back 3 or 4 times before it's fixed.
But honestly, autocorrect in general drives me crazy.
So does voice to text. It never spells out numbers and when i say times it puts * instead of the word. Smartphone my butt.

One time I was writing "I hope she does" and my phone autocorrected it to "I hope she DIES". My finger was hovering over "send" when I noticed it! Good grief, that would've been SO BAD!

Yeesssss! Does & dies!! I do it all the time. It's like as soon as I press send, I see it. Then of course you have to immediately correct yourself.

Rae - go under Settings, General, Keyboard, Shortcuts then in there you can make them. so like the girls names I have in there with lower case and it will capitalize them. things like that.

Apryl - if you have an iphone that's how. if you have another one it should be in your settings somewhere

I don't have auto correct set up on my BB, but my old phone... I know I once I texted my sister that "We just have to stop home for sex." It was SUPPOSED to say Rex (our dog) but sooo didn't come out that way. I think I scarred her for life
