Keyboard Dictionary Wont Reset? Here’s How To Fix That!

Have you noticed that after some time, while typing, your auto-correct stars suggesting or correcting to words that’s spelt incorrectly or if you type in another language/slang, it starts suggesting words you often use?

This is because built into the operating system (iOS) the keyboard auto correct / dictionary has a learning mechanism that learns words you type and use often and eventually takes them as the norm, and so it starts suggesting them to you while typing, simply trying to make your life easier…

When this gets a bit much, you always used to be able to go to your settings and just “reset keyboard dictionary”… But for some reason, since the release of iOS5, a few people have an issue where they can’t reset their keyboard doing the above method… Last night, after playing around wit...

See How Easily You Can Get Your iPhone 4S To Work on Cell C

The title of this article is slightly sarcastic… But here is why:

I recently got my iPhone 4S. Very excited to set it up and get it working, I went to my service provider, got a mico-sim and went home to set it up. I put my micro-sim in and tried to set up the iPhone, only to hit a problem when iTunes tries to activate the phone, with the following error:

Could Not Activate iPhone

Could Not Activate iPhone

Frustrated, I started checking what the cause of the issue could be. I noticed that the sim-card didn’t seem to be active and the iPhone kept showing “Searching” where the signal should be displayed. Eventually I tried using a different micro-sim and used my father’s Vodacom micro-sim and the process went through and I was able to set up my new iPhone.

While I was syncing all my content to my iPhone, I put my Cel...

How To Switch Between Apple ID’s

Up to now, you should have at least one Apple ID. Or, if you have a second one, thanks to the help of Creating a USA or UK iTunes Account, you may have more than one Apple iTunes Account. As I mentioned some of the benefits of having an account in the US or UK, there is a slight finicky thing about it. This is the AppStore itself on your iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch or iTunes can show that you have updates of apps, but wont show you which apps have updates available.

To be able to see this, you will have to log out of the one account and back into the respective Apple ID for the specific country to be able to update the apps. Maybe you aren’t concerned about that and just need some help on how to switch to your other Apple ID. Well, that’s what I intend on showing you how to do here.
