Galaxy S3 Auto Correct

Hello, are people seeing an issue where the S3 stock keyboard is not autocorrecting mispelled words? When i used to text it would correct the word for me if it was close enough. Now it will just take anything and i have to keep going back and fixing all words. Please let me know. It just recently starting happening on my phone.

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!

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

I was told it was an update in response to all of the complants of it picking the wrong word... i hate it personally.. so many misspelled words are now saved in my file.. but swype works almost the same... almost

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.

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.
