    My autocorrect is a miserable experience, I don't know if it has ever helped me. Mostly it just picks the wrong words and spanish words instead of what I was writing. When I do make a typo it keeps it instead of correcting it.

    I went into settings --> language & keyboard. Then I disabled 'spelling correction', but it is still doing it.

    How do I get rid of it, or find a working autocorrect piece of software?

    Change keyboards. The stock keyboard (I assume you are using this one) on the EVO 4g is outdated

    go to the play store and search for keyboards for android

    i like swype myself, but i hear great things about swift key or go keyboard as well.

    once you download the app, go to settings>langauage & keyboard>select the keyboard of your choice. then on the phone go to anywhere where you enter text into like your text messaging app and long press on where you enter text and then select your keyboard.
