    Hello all,

    The Galaxy S5 is my first phone without a qwerty keyboard and I'm fine for the most part but at times I'd like to have the keyboard rotate when I hold the phone sideways for larger keys to press. At one point when I got the phone it seemed to do it but now no longer will. Looking on advice for what can do to re/enable the keyboard to turn. Here is some pertinent info:

    I have screen rotation enabled (via the widget up top)
    I have google keyboard installed
    I use the stock Messages app for text messaging

    any help is appreciated!

    Make sure you do not have smart rotation enabled under :

    settings/display/screen rotation uncheck smart rotation
