    It's really irritating when someone points out a problem with X app and people say the solution is to ignore X and just use Y. This is not a solution. The solution to the Samsung Keyboard not autocorrecting on AT&T is not to install SwiftKey (no disrespect to them; it's a great keyboard and they deserve your money/business) or other keyboards. The solution is for Samsung to provide that very basic functionality out of the box. I just bought a new S4 only after poking around the demos and determining that auto correct actually worked on the Samsung keyboard. I was thrilled - then I got it home and the setting to make that happen wasn't available on mine. So I went back and held them up side by side - the demo unit (which turned out to be a Sprint S4) had the auto replacement option, while my brand new AT&T did not. This is very frustrating to me - I really like this phone, but Samsung really makes me mad with their software.
    Who is to say who is really to blame for this? Obviously Samsung is capable of putting it on their phones. Just like the missing optical reader in Verizon gs4s. Whose decision was that?

    We come to expect all these features standard on every smartphone and then it becomes inexcusable when we get nothing more than what is actually a decent keyboard that just happens to not have autocorrect. SwiftKey may or may not be a solution. It's a workaround. Samsung right on their website claims to have developed the keyboard with SwiftKey. There are many workarounds we get to use on our phones. At least they have the capability to use them.

    I installed A.I.type keyboard on my s4 because it has much more intense hypatic feedback and is easier for me to use (verizon s4).

    And it has auto correct plus predictive text. See it at android market place.

    It really is gone from the US version. Curious as to why. I'd recommend using the stock Jelly Bean keyboard, anyways.

    It's because Apple is suing samsung ocer it as a patent issue. Its only included in the international version of the S4.

    It seems in ome cases the autocorrect feature depends on the keyboard / input language combination.

    I have got a Note 2 from Korea and it had some Asian language and Samsung Chinese IME keyboard loaded.
    That keyboard accepts Asian languages as well as English input, but no French (I am french)
    If I keep this IME keyboard with English, auto correct does work.
    Idon't manage to load Frenc with this keyboard.

    After I chose French as a language, I enabled Samsung keyboard.
    Then I dont find any choice to enable auto correct, or oit does not work the same way (it suggest words but does not auto correct).
    I belive there should be a way to add some linguistic pack, but I can't find.

    I could use an alternative keyyboard like Swifkey or else,n ut I could not find any that does both:
    - offer auto correct
    - has a key to switch to manual input
    - provides a keyboard with both letters and figures on the same layout.

    Does anyone have an idea?
    Thanks, Agnes

    I'm guessing since the s4 doesn't have autocorrect, 3rd party keyboards such as swiftkey bootsed in downloads. Maybe this was on purpose for this reason. I'm to cheap to pay for a keyboard so the Google keyboard is just perfect

    Samsung does not have auto correct on the stock keyboard that's one thing that is definitely frustrating.

    One of the advantages of the stock keyboard over SwiftKeys is the added row for numerals. Otherwise, SwiftKeys is great.

    Hello

    Do you mean auto correct/auto replace by tapping the space bar (similar to iOS)? If so, it is available (I'm using this function) but it is turned off by default.

    Turn it on by doing the following:
    1. Settings>My device>language and input
    2. Click the gear icon next to "Samsung keyboard"
    3. Scroll down to and long tap the words "Predictive Text". This will take you into the options.
    4. Check "Auto replacement".

    That should do the trick. Hope that helps.

    One thing I haven't worked out is how (if poss) to reject a suggested correction. With iOS there's a small cross next to the suggested word which you can tap to reject it.

    Can't seem to do that with the s4 auto replacement space bar and predictive words bar at the top. Tapping the space bar immediately and automatically changes it to the blue predictive word, with no option to reject the blue predictive word.
    Thanks a ton! I was hating my S4 , just for keyboard. And tried swype, swiftkey, all useless. This info was really helpful.

    Cannot thank you enough. I don't know if I didn't see this the first time or what, but this makes my phone perfect. By far was my #1 complaint and cannot believe this would not be the default version. Samsung is going to lose business because they didn't make this the default version, I can promise them that.

    THANK YOU AGIAN!!! (would have been auto-corrected if I typed this with the S4)

    I started a new thread on what may be similar or same question, is there a way to enable the below?

    http://forums.androidcentral.com/gen...sted-word.html

    That may sound like a simple request, but for the life of me on an old Galaxy s4 and now my s4 mini I do not see the option or have the experiance where auto correct is fixing my misspelled words. In attachment I typed "Sorry phone qas" and was hoping it would auto correct qas to was (which is an option but I have to select it in blue) How do I make it auto auto correct to the letter in blue?

    Thank you,

    Shane

    Related problem with a Note 3: If I plug in hardwired USB keyboard, Auto Correct disappears. If I use this keyboard, it works fine, though I lose the auto-correct. When I unplug it and go back to using the virtual touch screen keyboard, I expect to get Auto Correct back, but it is gone.
    1) It still shows up as configured, but it isn't available
    2) If I reboot the Note, it reappears
