    Are you doing Kies Air or Kies with your phone hooked up to your computer?

    Pop on live chat and tell them it is recognizing your phone but not letting you do an update. They can get it started for you. I've never had an issue with Kies, but each time I upgrade, I do a fresh install of Kies. Also, try taking your battery out for at least 60 seconds, turn your computer off, boot it back up with your phone connected first and then start Kies.

    Ok, so I took the advice and did a factory reset. Google Voice Typing still does NOT work when connected to my car's bluetooth. This eliminates most the my S3's functionality while I'm in the car.

    I repeat my claim that his update was worthless.

    Since the factory reset didn't work and you want this back try another keyboard. Swiftkey3 is an awesome keyboard but since you like Swype they have made "Swiftflow" which is swiftkeys version of Swype. It's still in beta but it may just allow you to use voice to text via Bluetooth.

    Worth a shot since it's free and if it doesn't work you can just uninstall.

    I have Swiftkey but it relies on Google Voice for dictation which doesnt work when connected to bluetooth.

    The fact that I can now remove uninstalled apps from my "My Apps" list in the Play store makes this not a worthless update alone.
