    Default Am I doing something wrong with AutoCorrect?

    So, on my old EVO 3D, while typing, if I was typing a contraction, I could simply type the word without the apostrophe and it would autocorrect in the SMS, email, whatever. For example:

    I type: couldnt
    AutoCorrected to: couldn't

    With the SGN2, it doesn't do that. I have to either type the apostrophe myself or I can choose from the available list of 3 words that come up for the predictive choices. Am I doing something wrong and missing a configuration setting somewhere? Or, does this just not work that way on the SGN2.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Well I have the Samsung Galaxy S3 and it doesn't auto correct either.

    You will need to download an alternative keyboard like SwiftKey since the Samsung keyboard does not natively autocorrect.

    One of the best keyboards in the Play Store is Swift Key 3. It will not only auto correct, but if you allow it the keyboard will learn your typing style and suggest words based on your individual speech.

    I use it on both the Note 2, and Note 10.1.

    Swype is on the note 2. It will auto correct as well. I don't like having to install extra space apps if I don't have to.

    Thanks. This seems like such a rudimentary thing to include. I can't believe it isn't natively on the phone in the stock keyboard.

    Really? Absolutely no auto correct? They put everything and the kitchen sink into that keyboard, but no auto correct? Weird!

    It's the craziest thing ever. On my HTC Evo, I never had to think about typing. It was just always right.

    The galaxy s3 has auto-suggest, not auto-correct. So you have to stop your typing flow and watch a list of weird words instead of looking at what you wrote. It slows everything down so much.

    Samsung also has no idea that the letters i and o are next to each other, or worse, t and y. My texts all say 'how are tou' and samsung suggests a million things but never 'you'.

    Sounds like Swiftkey is going back in to the Note 2 as soon as I get it. Come on Best Buyyyyyy!

    Ya, the auto suggest seriously blows. I'm just going to hold out for the Swift Key swipe keyboard or try out the beta version. I was using SK3 on my old phone and it was great but really missed the ability to swipe.

    Swype is on the note 2 and it auto corrects. What makes Swift key better?

    thats odd, I just tried the default Samsung Keyboard with Swiftkey Flow, and I used Flow to spell couldnt and it corrected it to couldn't.... did you try turning ON swift key flow????

    Yes, Swiftkey Flow works to auto-correct, and I have it checked. But I type the conventional way and even with Swiftkey Flow checked typing the conventional way does not auto-correct. This is really kinda stupid. Really the only complaint I have about this phone. But it's a big one given that I had this on my EVO 3D.

    There is a setting on the Sammy keyboard you can turn on for predictive text.

    Again, predictive text is not the same thing as auto-correct. Predictive text won't inline correct "couldnt" to "couldn't" as you type.

    Just an fyi, in the swift key flow settings for space bar action pick "completes the selected word" or something like that. When I had it on "puts in a space" it would not auto correct the apostrophe either. But if you do it with the completes the selected word both conventional typing and swype typing auto correct the apostrophe.

    Default Re: Am I doing something wrong with AutoCorrect?

    Yeah I have the same problem. I have all the right settings ticked. In writing post on my galaxy s3 and I have to correct my self all the time instead of auto correct doing it for me. For example I'll type havr instead of have and it will not correct it for me I havr tp select it fkr a drop down menu as you csn see I make obvious mistakes when typing.i just don't understand why they havr removed thks feature. I had it when I first bought the phone but after doing an update its just not there anymore. Help.
