Someone shared a link to a website where people can submit SMS messages from their smart phones - SMS where the phone did an auto-spelling or auto-correct to the word that was misspelled or when the predictive word (auto-spell) was done. Most of the SMS shared (if not all) are from the iPhone :w00t:
here are some of them from that website








I thought that I was the only one who thought that auto-spelling/correcting function that my iPhone provides isn't trust worthy for me :HistericalSmiley:

Auto spelling happens while I type the first couple of letters (MOST of the time, it completes the word with something(word) that I did not intend to write - when you read the whole sentence, they don't make sense with the word :blink: )
or when I type in the whole word, then turns out that I made a typing error because I tapped on the wrong letter, my iPhone automatically detects the spelling mistake and replaces the word with a correct spelled (another word similar to the letters to the mistake that I made), although the word is a word (right spelling), it is mostly not the word that I had in mind. I find that if the word was left without correcting the typing/spelling error, the receiver of the message/reader (human mind) will understand the word that I intended to choose but mis-spelled it due to quick typing error -- rather than having the iPhone to correct the word.

When I first got my iPhone, every now and there, there HAD to be a message I sent with a word that didn't make sense with the whole sentence (due to the iPhone's auto-correct). I learned that I cannot trust my iPhone to correct or auto spell. Even when I am in a rush or typing very quick, I always reread what i wrote.

so watch out when you type in these smart phones lol

hugs

I have a friend who was due to deliver her 4th child the Saturday after Thanksgiving. She texted me on Friday, saying that it had just dawned on her that "today would be Sammy's last day of being the baby." (Sammy is her 3 yr old.) I texted her and said, "Take it easy today. Just relax and enjoy babying Sammy." Here's the text she received, thanks to the auto correct: "Take it easy today. Just relax and enjoy banging Sammy."

Oh Sue, with that function, that will make a fitting name LOL

Now I am glad I still have a "dumb" phone !:HistericalSmiley:
LOL!! trust me, for *NOT* offering an auto spell or spell correction function, your phone is considered to be the SMARTEST :thumbsup:

:LOL:too funny

Oh Lynne, I've been there - not just one time, but MANY times, when I first got my iPhone; except that my incidents were in different conversations / other words.

haha so I am not the only one who isn't a fan of auto spelling correction that the iPhone offers :HistericalSmiley:
yes, it is annoying when it first happens, but now, when I think about some of the wordings that it fixed for me, I go LOLing hard. I no longer trust my iPhone's auto correction looool

It takes me forever to send a text on my smart iphone. I always have to read it over before I hit send and correct all the help I've had with spelling. :blink:

lol Jane, with my blackberry (yes 2 phones here for the 2 numbers), I never worried about that
With my iPhone, that is exactly how I was like in the beginning the second I found out that the auto spell is not trust worthy :HistericalSmiley:
