    Shutting off Auto Correct

    Auto Correct is so annoying! I enter and see "Hi Cris" and it replaces with "Hi Crisp." I don't notice it because I have moved on after I saw it was entered correctly initially. I end sentence with lol and it changes to lop. I don't want clients thinking I am drunk or ignorant. How do I shut off auto correct on text messaging and composing emails? Thanks

    I like auto correct. If you select those words in the top bar it will give you the option to save them so that doesn't happen. But you can turn it off under Settings > Language and Keyboards.

    I had been to that location before, and unchecked "quick fixes" thinking that was auto correct. I just returned to that location and unchecked auto-complete and that seems to have disabled auto correct. Thanks.

    you should probably refrain from using "lol" when conversing with clients anyway.

    Great point...but there are times when it is ok. I believe you reflect the relationship the client feels they have with you. So, if the client is that casual...it is ok for you to be. It is about relationship and connection.

    That said, I always read my messages 3 or 4 times before sending things to a client on my phone...lol

    Geez... all the OP asked was how to turn off auto-correct on his phone, not how everyone thinks they should converse with clients via text or email. Just answer the question. With that being said, after reading through the unnecessary posts, I finally found how to turn it off on my phone...

    We try to keep threads on topic, but you'll find that they sometimes stray.

    I like auto correct as well, and once I save a mispelled word it doesn't come up incorrectly again.
    Like Buddy, I've also gotten into the habit of double check my comments, emails, etc before posting them. Personally, I think more people should take the time to double check their comments before sending them but that's just me.
