    Yes, I have learned to re- read my posts before posting but a few funny words still slip through. Sometimes I get quite a chuckle out of what shows up.

    I post here, from my computer. However, I've had lots of "fun" texts, with my cell phone. Some phones allow the option of not having auto-correct . . . but then you miss all the fun!

    I don't have an iPhone, but I thought I'd read somewhere that you can change a setting and turn it off?

    don't have a phone, but I had to turn off that on Google, it was driving me nuts. I am the boss of my machines, not the other way around!! I keep telling myself that. Now if I could get the darn microwave to stop beeping at me when it is done.

    Just Google "turn off autocorrect on (your brand name) phone" - either Wikihow or Ehow will have instructions.

    Ironically, I use Google email and they are changing it, including eliminating Spell Check, which was not automatic, but helpful for someone who never took a typing class.

    LOL - so funny - that explains a lot! I was wondering about why some posters posted what they did! I have a cheap cell phone - DH and I have prepaid minutes and even text messages cost but we don't use them for "chatting". Haven't even learned how to text. I guess those smart phones could be called smart-donkey phones (trying to keep it clean).

    I very seldom charge up my phone. If I get a call I don't always hear it. We work in a metal building and can't get a signal. It also sets down in a hole type place.

    I hate that too! Why do they have to have beepers? I can hear just fine when the motor stops running. When we replaced our microwave a few years back, the number one item on my wish list was the option to turn the dang beep off.

    Both computer and phone spelling autos are frustrating for an "English" speller rather than an American one.

    We have a new washer (that I detest. I could go beat my clothes on a rock and get the same results) and dryer that sing a song when they're done. Fortunately, that can easily be turned off. I didn't know the auto-correct could be turned off on the iPhone. Checking that out!! If you type the same thing about three times, it will "let" it stand, but that's a pain in the caboose!

    Well, this post explains the weird message we sometimes get here! I have machines that think they're smarter than we are!

    I disabled my auto correct because some of the texts had things that weren't even words!

    i turned auto correct off on my ipad after it kept changing people names. auto correct on mobile devices is as dumb as it is on my pc. which also has it turned off.

    I hate the automatic edit on my Android. I spend more time trying to make it say what I want than it would take to type every letter. If I can find a way to turn it off, I will.

    Oh, yea, I want to scream every time the microwave beeps me, not to mention the cloths dryer. If I could actually explode, I would when that thing beeps over and over. Geez, am I getting to be an old grouch, or what?

    No, I don't think you're a grouch. Whose idea was it to make all this cr*p beep at us anyway?? Probably the same idiot who invented underwire bras and commercials. I could do without THEM, too!

    I don't hate the auto correct near as much as I hate when I use voice typing for text messages and it gets almost every word wrong Hardly use it because it is such a pain

    Sassey, I know what you are talking about on the talk to text thing!!! When my sister & I first started using it, she accused me of talking nasty to her!!! It was hilarious and we got alot of laughs from it but now that it recognizes our voices, it works much better. You just have to keep at it. It takes it a while to recognize the southern "drawl" and comes up with some really funny things as you can imagine!! But it will work eventually & you wont have to correct so much after awhile. Just keep at it!!
