Re: Galaxy S3 Auto Correct

This happen to my Galaxy S3 too after the update!  Drives me crazy.  Sprint, can you provide any insight into a fix for this or the timeframe for when this will be addressed?  Thanks!

Re: Galaxy S3 Auto Correct

I've never had this issue on my phone. However, I never really liked the autocorrect or other functionality of the samsung keyboard. I would recommend looking into the Swype Beta. It works much better than samsung keyboard. If you had the original Epic 4G, then you should remember the effectiveness of Swype over the samsung keybaord. Check here for more information:

I called Sprint & their answer was to do a factory reset which I think is complete BS

Re: Galaxy S3 Auto Correct

I'd be very interested in hearing an official answer about why it changed as well.  As I posted in the other thread, a co-worker seems to think the change in autocorrect came as a result of the Apple-Samsung lawsuit.  He couldn't show me anything that supported that.  It is a real shame...it was the most useful feature of my phone and now the biggest source of frustration.

Re: Galaxy S3 Auto Correct

So I just got done speaking with a Samsung Rep, nice guy named Kevin.  Here is exactly what he said to me:

Kevin: Would you mind If I take 3 minutes while I gather the required information on your request?

Visitor: No, that should be fine!

Kevin: Thank you.

Kevin: Thank you for holding.

Kevin: I have checked the information in our database.

Kevin: I'm sorry. After the Jelly Bean update Auto-Substitute or Spell Correction feature is not available for the keyboard input.

I find that very very annoying, but at least it is an answer straight from Samsung.
