    I was almost sure it was enabled out of the box on any Samsung device but if it's not you can activate it by going to settings > my device > scroll down to language and input > select the Swype keyboard
    You can also download apps like SwiftKey or the Google Keyboard if you don't like the Samsung keyboard or Swype

    Hmm, ok. I don't have a Tab 2 but it's an option on most Samsung devices I've used
    Here's the link to the Google Keyboard:https://forums.androidcentral.com/e?...token=omiSPLzg
    You can download either of one of those and try them out, once you open them it should give the option to set as a default keyboard

    this is solved now. Keyboard and language input > samsung keyboard settings > move predective text as "ON" (iff in off state) > tap on the same option (predictive text ON) > enable CONTINUOUS INPUT

    now start messaging on fly with swype strokes.

    @ tachydavid - thanks man, i followed your approach. when you mentioned to scroll over and find it. i decided to go option by option trying out all possibilites within an option.

    so in my device and of samsung tab2 10.1 swype is called " CONTINUOUS INPUT" under predective text in ON mode.

    To be honest, Samsung keyboard was the worst space consuming, small key keyboard. But glad it works for you.
