    Hi all. I'm loving this phone. My first smart phone and it has been immensely helpful in organizing my life in the three weeks I've had it.

    My question is this: what exactly does the Spell Correction feature do? I realized today that I had it disabled all this time. I tried typing with Spell Correction enabled but haven't noticed any difference. The user manual explains the settings like this:

    Prediction Select to enable the word prediction feature which
    provides a list of possible words that reflect the characters of
    the keys you have tapped as well as characters of nearby keys.

    Spell correction
    Select to correct typographical errors
    by selecting from a list of possible words that reflect the
    characters of the keys you have tapped as well as characters
    of nearby keys.


    ...but the keyboard seems to me to function exactly the same with or without spell correction enabled. Any ideas?

    Is this a stupid question? I only ask it because the keyboard seems to correct my spelling even when Spell Correction is disabled. So I can't tell what's different.

    All I know for SURE, is that I didn't care for the prediction feature, so I turned it off. Too often it 'forced' me to use a word that it predicted, rather than the word I really wanted.
    I do see however that spell checking is greyed out if prediction is not checked. So they must be VERY closely related if you can't change one without first turning on the other.

    A buddy of mine bought a live-aboard 27" sailboat. I sent him the text, "SHOT!" It was supposed to be, AHOY!". too funny.
