Autocorrect issue in Messaging

    I'm having an issue with the Messaging app's autocorrect on the Galaxy S3.

    If I type a single quote in a word (as in an abbreviation), I will get two single quotes together (not a double quote, but two single quotes).

    For example,


    will be changed to I''ll.

    Or another example:

    They're gets changed to They''re.

    It's annoying!

    Anybody else seen this problem before?

    If you have auto-correct on, just type Ill instead and it should add the appostrophe.

    Personally, I turn off auto-correct. I hate it when the phone changes what I type automatically. I just leave the suggestions on. Also, I use Thumb Keyboard instead of the regular keyboard.
