I find it so annoying when i type lol it tries to correct it to LOL. That looks weird to me. Is there a way to add lol to a dictionary or something? I thought it was supposed to learn most frequently typed words

    When the auto-correct "LOL" show up click the "x" next to it. Eventually the phone will learn that you mean "lol" and not correct.

    When you type "lol" and it suggests "LOL", before you press the space to go to the next word, press the "lol" that you have typed so it doesn't replace it with "LOL". Wow, that's really understandable...

    UGH yes I hate this sooo much!
    "LOL" is like I'm literally LAUGHING OUT LOUD, like ROFLMAO
    and "lol" is just like "haha"
    there is a distinction and it looks weird to type "LOL" when you really mean "lol"

    I hate how I have to tap the "x" every time I type "lol", which is all the time.

    I hate how our society has actually found a difference between LOL and lol. Doesn't it really matter? How often do you ACTUALLY laugh out load when you type that... Just my opinion.

    Personally, I write "hahaha" instead of LOL or lol when I find something funny and/or I laugh out loud.

    If you put LOL it looks like ur a freak. But the question is how do you stop it from doing that?

    So you're telling me that I camped outside of an AT&T store overnight, and because of this serious BUG I can't properly tell my friends how hard (or in this case softly) I am laughing out loud?

    Ironically, this is just not funny. Well, maybe it is, but only lowercase lol. You can't express that on an iPhone.

    Should I take my iPhone back? Do you think that Apple will put some engineers on this one?

    LOL
