    I would like to know if we can "close" the keyboard without hit the "Enter" button ?

    On my old HTC Desire, i have a button to close the keyboard, but not on my SGIII...

    I may be misunderstanding the question, but when I have the keyboard pop-up the way I get rid of it is simply hitting the back button once. Sorry if this isn't what you are referring to.

    I'm sorry that I was wrong. It's a swipe down the keyboard to close it but it does not work all the time.

    Like he said above. Click the back button. It should go away fine

    Like NIKSTORM said, swipe down on the keyboard and it will disappear. It worked like this on my BlackBerry too.

    EDIT: Not sure if the stock keyboard works like this but Swiftkey does.

    Like others have said tap the back button, swipe down (stock response to this isn't great, but swift key is awesome), or just do yourself a favor and dump the stock keyboard for Swift Key. You can try it free for 30 days, but I guarantee you will not switch back. One of the best apps I have ever bought for any phone.

    That is the one things miss from my old HTC rezound, I loved the close button on the keyboard. Actually the keyboard in general rocked!

    Whenever I'm typing in a text field and I'm finished and want to view the entire screen, I tap the back button and the keyboard closes every time without backing out of the application. It's genius. A swipe down in Swiftkey delivers the same outcome.
