Type ehatch anywhere on your iPhone / iTouch (e.g. the Notes app) and see what it suggests..

Haha, that's good.

I've noticed that 3.0 brought some real creativity to spelling suggestions. I've had some very odd stuff pop up on mine lately.

I lol'd.

3.0 has definitely improved suggestions for me - but, like @halfgoon, I've seen some bizzare suggestions.

Feeling shortchanged as mine suggested nothing but "what".
... that's got to be a warranty issue right? :D

Go to settings > general > keyboard > auto-correction. Switch it to "on". See if that works.

I'm running 3.0 on a 3GS and it isn't working. Not that I care, but it is a little strange that it works for some and not for others.

I found that it didn't work in Notes for me, but everything else did

Thanks for the screen shot DD!

Running on 3.0 here, and checked that auto-correct is on but still not showing up.

Now I'm going to have to hack the dictionary, and implant some urban slang in it for amusement! :D
