    Has anyone noticed that the spell check in the 3.0 firmware is horrible? I go to type "on" or "in" and it spell checks it to "UFO"? WTF? It does this with a lot of simple 2 or 3 letter words. It seems every time I type "no" it spell checks it to "7pm". I had no idea that "7pm" was a word...

    I'm jailbroken so is there any way I could fix this? 2.2.1 spell check was great but when I upgraded to 3.0 I noticed that it was horrible.

    I have no trouble with auto correct on 3.0 and 3.1. Maybe a jb app messed it up for you.

    If it really bothers you, you might consider purchasing Inspell from the Cydia Store.

    just take it off. spell check (even on 2.x) is a real pain if you use even minor amounts of slang (like it changes u to I, which can drastically change the meaning of a sentence).

    Then type correctly on your iPod? It's not that hard.

    Also when I type "its" it corrects it to "it's"
    Apple needs to work on its spell checking

    you type the o, then the period. Type the last o, then backspace and type it again. It won't auto correct it.
