    I really want to use the stock keyboard, but there is one thing that drives me crazy: I can't long press buttons to add punctuation. Instead, I have to switch to the punctuation keyboard, or long press the "period" button to bring up the other options. I've looked in the settings and can't find any changes that would fix this. Am I missing something, or am I the only person who is annoyed by this?

    Have you made the Samsung kb your default kb? The first key to the right of the spacebar is a period. No long-press necessary.

    Yeah, I'm talking about the rest of the punctuation marks like ! ? # ( ) , " '
    The dedicated number row is great, but I can't believe you can't long press the other buttons for punctuation

    For example, other keyboards allow you to long press "a" and then you get an "!". But on the Samsung keyboard, if I long press any of the letters, it just gives me a capital letter. Instead, I have to long press the period button to bring up the other punctuation options.

    I will also add that I have an international Note 2. I don't know if the US versions are any different

    I've been wondering about this too. The lack of autocorrect was already annoying me and now this.
    I want to use the stock keyboard but it's like Samsung are forcing me to use swiftkey or swype.

    I guess the Verizon Note 2 is different. My stock keyboard does exactly what your want.

    Try the 3 x 4 keyboard. Works great too for one hand typing. And space bar input the recommended words. No international note2.

    Do the keys show alternate characters?

    It's not letting me upload a picture from my computer, but here's a picture from a website that shows the international Note 2 keyboard. Like I said, if you long press the keys, it just gives you a capital letter. I saw pictures of the keyboard for the US versions, and I'm really jealous. Does anybody know of a way to get the US keyboard?

    This was on XDA. There's more in the thread itself but here's a step by step guide someone's written up.

    xda-developers - View Single Post - [Q] How To Get Setup Keyboard Like This?

    It looks like you'd need root access to do it though, and for the moment I'm not rooting mine as I want to wait for Sky Go and see if I'll be using that before I decide on whether to root my phone.
