I guess I'm pretty good at typing lol. With Apple's auto-complete, I'm about 97-98% accurate and can type pretty fast. Not sure of any shortcuts. When I had my Droid, I typed so fast that I rarely used the word prediction feature.

No, I meant what I said. I liked Swype, my wife didn't and I don't know all iPhone users. Pretty simple statement I made if you don't try to insert things I never said.

Two very useful Apps that aren't even allowed to exist in the iOS universe since they directly tie in to the core functions of the device.
Timed profiles is the one thing I really miss on an unjailbroken iPhone. Used it constantly on my Nokia and my jailbroken 3G.

I'm usually pretty accurate but sometimes my ipod touch predicts the wrong words and inserts them automatically, which makes it difficult to correct.

I just wish they would give you the option to hit a button to accept the auto correct instead of just inserting it.

Yea I admit sometimes the auto correct on the iphone or ipod is a little annoying.

It's awful on wiki websites. When the auto correct thing pops up and you want to cancel it, it triggers a search on the 'corrected' word. :: Game wikis are the worst.

For some reason Google hasn't fully pushed out 4.04 for CDMA/LTE users yet. I updated mine manually and it improved some random things in the OS (e.g. black text in status now appears white so you can read it). It also updated the CDMA/LTE radio firmware and improved my signal. Jackpot.

Thinking I'm going to ditch sprint and go for this deal:

http://slickdeals.net/f/4265234-Unlo...msung-Warranty

I'm getting tired of sprints bullsh*t, and getting tired of being on a contract. I'm considering t-mobile but want to get an idea of how their signal is in my area.

The signal around here sucked for T Mobile so we got Sprint which has a much better signal... but the Sprint 3g is a hell of a lot slower than T Mobile was when you could get a 3g signal.

Sprint doesn't even offer 4g where I'm at, and they probably won't even offer it for another four years.

Really stupid too because I live in the 6th largest city in the states, you'd figure they'd want that market share. What's really dumb though is they offer 4g in a few cities outside of the metro area which have tiny populations.

And then sprints 3g service is bottom last in terms of speed. Even cricket has better 3g.
