    Default Nexus S 4G: Where the heck is the enter button?

    ok so im newish to android phones, the nexus s 4g is my first android phone, but ive had a next 3 tablet before.
    so ive noticed that the keyboard on here DOESNT HAVE A ENTER/RETURN BUTTON!

    Ive searched on each keyboard page, looked on google, prayed to jesus, but it seems to not have one. when i look online, it seems that everybody just doesnt notice this problem.

    can you guys help me on this?
    i really need this because im tired of making weird looking paragraphs when im texting my friends

    The stock keyboard has an enter button. I'm guessing you're using a different keyboard in which then you would need to hit the ALT, ?123 or shift key to show the enter button.

    What keyboard are you using?

    The only one that I know of that doesnt have it is Better Keyboard. It shows a smiley key instead of an enter button. If you hit ALT or the numberkeys (I forget which one) it then changes to an Enter key.

    Yep I have to chuckle a little bit.. We have an enter/return key on stock Android KB, Swype, etc.....

    First picture is Swype and second is stock Android KB.

    Enter key is one the right side bottom corner. Its the downward right angled actually left angle arrow looking key...

    Don't take any of this sarcastically...

    OMG! are you guys serious? I'm the only only one? I'm only using stock keyboard when I'm sending a text message, all I have are shift, 123/ABC, backspace and Smiley. But no enter button I had to download HTC ime hi22 in order to get a keyboard with enter/return, but I'd rather use stock instead because it looks keeled and I feel like I'm molesting my nexus s 4g D: can anyone help me?

    Yeah when texting it changes to Smileys. When on web or posting on forum it changes to return. Try go keyboard and download gingerbread theme. That is only recommendation I have.

    Yeah that is strange. I guess because they assumed for texing that Smileys are used more than enter. I do use them but I can see where its an inconvenience for some. Not on stock, I tried. Other keyboards have option though. Try go keyboard and see if you like it since it's free. It looks like stock with the gingerbread theme its not bad actually. The other keyboards are paid like swifykey which I love.

    I'm not sure about that. I'm thinking it will remain the same as far as that goes.

    I'm using the Slide It keyboard, so much easier than typing, and I just press send instead of enter. The lack of a enter button was never an issue for me, hmm...

    SOLVED ENTER KEY
    It does exist in ICS.
    Hold the shift key (up arrow on left) or press once to view enter key on smiley button.
    I was having this same problem. ICS 4.1.2 Galaxy Nexus stock keyboard messaging app.

    Lol i only joined this forum to let everyone know

    Thanks to all you guys. The invisible enter button was frustrating me a lot, since I like my formatting to be correct. Your posts of 2012 have helped me in 2014.
