    I can't for the life of me get auto correct to work on my epic.

    I have it the auto correct checked in every setting imaginable and it still won't work. Does anyone else have this issue or a solution?

    EDIT: I just noticed that it will work for my slide out keyboard but not when the keyboard closed.

    Mine won't work on the hardware keyboard. I'm using sype on the other, so that seems to work fine.

    I use swype mostly. What keyboard are you using? Under settings for keyboard, I see option under both android keyboard and slider for auto correct, maybe it just need to learn a bit?

    Me either. It looks like maybe auto-correct just isn't for the physical keyboard?...

    Ever since the update happened it seems like the auto correct on the phone is not there anymore. It use to give a suggestion of words in orange but it doesn't do that any more. Does anyone know how to fix that or if it might be something they will be fixing?

    yea it dont work with swype and if you want it to work with the physical keyboard I suspect you have to enable one of the other keyboards

    install the gingerbread keyboard, that works great for me although I dont use the physical keyboard anymore because it doesent regester every keypress the first time - there is a topic about this problem and I posted in it before posting this reply

    I had the same problem ever since receiving the Froyo 2.2 update. I haven't found any solution for the stock virtual keyboards, but I did find instructions for installing the Gingerbread keyboard which is awesome, and DOES autocorrect. See link below.
