I finally got fed up with Auto Correct on my I-phone and disabled it. If you want to join the revolution, it is an easy fix.

I want to(see signature), as a former iPhone guy I can say the Samsung keyboard is 100 times worse than the iPhone and if no autocorrect was available for me then I doubt I could even type.

Phone numbers with 'lower digits' in them were preferred. Smile

Why do we still call it dialing a number when there is no longer a dial?

We rarely enter phone numbers anymore, i.e. simply hit the name of a contact ..

Or texts, I was shocked that the number of minutes I don't use vs the cost vs the texts I do use.
