Can’t you turn the spellcheck off? I read about so many frustrations with the iphone. I am glad I don’t have one. I am using my desktop Mac OS X w/no problems.

It usually learns corrections after the third time you refuse a correction. A common occurence for me was typing squirbel; it would auto-suggest squirrel. Nowadays all I have to do is type sq and it auto-suggests squirbel, and we all know squirbel is not a word.

When you are typing the name, and it suggests the other name in the bubble, tap the bubble to decline. After a few repetitions it will have learned.

You can turn it off in the settings!

When you see the correction bubble pop up all you do is click the little “x” in the bubble and continue typing. It should learn after that.
