For some reason when I type Chris in a message it tries to auto correct to CHRIS.

I added a Japanese keyboard so you can customise the dictionary hows daft is that and followed instructions to edit but still stays the same.

Any fix? thanks..

Simple answer is that the iPhone dictionary is an absolute pile of shit.

The way I do it is to add x's after the word to stop it auto correcting and then delete them...

so:


Chris = CHRIS
Chrisx = Chrisx
Chrisx - x = Chris

Agree its garbage had to do what you said but its crazy. Only when you add a Chinese or Japanees dictionary can you add words like ill or it goes l'll
About time they fixed it. Some of the auto corrects are mad... Why it goes to CHRIS every time haven't got a clue. But thanks for help.

Do you think a complete re install will cure it?

Why will it not learn Chris instead of CHRIS very odd. Lot of posts on forums but all say easy to cure it isn't.

Sorted I think my own fix as cant find anything anywhere other than it lears from Safari and Notes plus takes from Contacts so if wrong in Contacts will keep happening.

First did a sync to be certain I had my apps music contacts etc. etc.


Then
Settings
General
Reset
Reset All Settings
WAIT
and then had to enter my wireless key for bt wifi.

went into safari typed Chris in the google bar. (as learns from in Safari)
went into notes and typed Chris (no auto correct) clears out all the learned words.
Stuff like ill still appear as obviously I'll close but all my technical words
are fine.

Checked OUTLOOK settings and all ok.
Had to reset brightness, Volume, Message Previews. etc but five mins of a job.

Fingers crossed. Just need to be more careful with typing until learning set again...

Hope of use to others.
