How To: Turn off Auto-Correction on the Apple iPhone 3G

Turn off Auto-Correction on the Apple iPhone 3G

The iPhone is great for a lot of reasons, but one fault it may have is the keyboard and the ability to type. It's hard enough to actually type emails and notes on the small keyboard, but when auto-correction thinks it knows more about what you're writing than you do, it could become frustrating. So how do you stop Auto-Correct? Best Buy has answers. The Best Buy Mobile team explains how simple it is to turn off Auto-Correction on the Apple iPhone 3G.

Ben: "Hi everyone, I'm Ben from Best Buy Mobile in Holyoke, Massachusetts and today I'm going to show you to how to turn auto correct off on your iPhone 3G. So we're gonna go in here and send an email to my friend. We're gonna type in a word and if I mis-key something, you'll see a little bubble come up there, that bubble gives you a suggestion of a word you may or may not want to use. If I'm typing in a model number or a name or something that it doesn't recognize, I'm not gonna be able to do that. Unless, we go into our settings and turn auto correct off; and I'm gonna show you how to do that. We go right here to general settings and then scroll down a little bit and you'll see keyboard options. Right on the top is auto-correct. If I pressed that and turn auto correct off, now I can go back into email, I can type whatever letters I want into this taskbar here and it's not gonna assume that I'm typing in any particular words. So if you're typing in a name, a model number, anything, you're good to go. And that is how you turn auto correct off on your iPhone."
