    Default auto correct not working?

    Well I have jelly bean installed on my galaxy s 3 and well... I have predictive text on but that doesnt really function as an auto correct... it still allows me to type a word like greaft which means nothing... with an autocorrect I can usually press space to replace it with the first correct word on the predictive text... it isnt foing that on my phonee... can someone help?

    Might help to know which keyboard you're using.

    it doesn't work for me either. exact same issue. even when i did switch to swiftkey the same thing would happen. this was happening before the jelly bean rollout as well. it sucks because i have all the appropriate tabs checked for doing autocorrect yet it doesn't work.
    and i personally prefer the jelly bean keyboard to swiftkey.

    jellybean keyboard, free in play store... it is night and day in comparison.
    there is no comparison.

    swift key is nice, but its a paid only app, and although it isnt expensive, you shouldnt have to pay anything for a keyboard that works. so count me out on that one.

    i've used both the jelly bean (free play store app) and the new jelly bean OS keyboard. i like the layout of them both, but i need/want my autocorrect working properly and at this point it isn't. swift key does have a free d/l but again i don't prefer that one.

    the free download for SK is only a trial... and the JB keyboard i am referring to has a wonderful auto correct feature.
    i type very fast and rely heavily on this feature, otherwise my texts would be virtually unreadable.

    Mine is not working either. I loved the keyboard I originally had on my phone. Jellybean messed with my keyboard and now an update that I just received last week has reallllly messed with my keyboard. Auto correct is not working even though all of the correct boxes are checked. I also miss having the punctuation to choose from with my keyboard. I'm using the default Samsung keyboard and don't want to download an app to do a function the device should be doing!! Was this a Samsung update?

    Unhappy Re: auto correct not working?

    I think the last update I got on my phone was a Verizon update and it did the same thing to me so now my default keyboard will not auto correct and i can't figure out why. So nobody knows?

    follow the steps below (based on Galaxy tab2 with JB 4.1.2)
    1. settings
    2. language & input
    3. tap on samsung keyboard settings icon
    4. tap on input languages
    5. tap to download desired language pack(eg. English(UK)
    6. check box in front of downloaded language
    you are done. start typing !

    Apple put a patent on Autocorrect. Samsung can't use that feature anymore.
