    Default What happened to my keyboard?

    Hi, I just got my first android phone today, Galaxy S3 (always had iPhone before). A little while ago I was typing and I did something that moved the querty row of keys to the top row. Don't know how I did it, but I'm hoping that someone can tell me how to put it back in it's normal position.

    Thanks,
    Martin

    Switch the language back from French to English.

    Thanks. I had no idea that I had switched to French and clearly don't know how I did. So ... don't know how to switch it back, but I'll go searching around settings and see what I can find.

    Thanks again.

    It should be on the keyboard itself, but you can also check Settings>Language & keyboard>Language if I'm not mistaken.

    Really strange. It seems -- from the tutorial -- that there should be a symbol/icon -- it looks like a globe -- if the keyboard is set up for two languages. You press that and hold until the language names come up and then select what you want. The trouble now is that on this changed/French keyboard, the icon isn't there. So I went to Settings->Language & Keyboard->Language and it's set for English. I'll keep searching.

    Appreciate your help.

    Can you at least provide a screenshot of said keyboard? I'm quite curious now.

    Well, I really messed up. It turns out that I had 2 languages selected for the keyboard, English and French, and didn't notice when I did the first thing you suggested, that is, check the language. The second mess up was that I didn't see, even though I was looking for it, the little globe icon to change the language. Sorry for the false alarm.
    I guess there's no need for a screen shot now, though again, as a brand new Galaxy/Android owner, I don't know how to take a screenshot :-)

    May I suggest this post: http://forums.androidcentral.com/sam...galaxy-s3.html
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.
