Swype Keyboard Messed Up-Kies won't work-Battery Dying-No Update-USB Not R'nized
I'm having various problems--most of them started today.
First and foremost, my Swype keyboard is messed up. Letters are not where they're supposed to be.
Kies won't work--it says plug in phone, but it is plugged in. This may be because my USB Has ALWAYS said ''USB not recognized'' (even after installing driver from Samsung.com)
My phone says no update available (I have ATT--does this mean I need to root my phone?)
And my battery seems to be dying quicker than it used to. We're on vacation right now and it's been dying within 3hrs of fully charging it--that's with me not using very many apps at all.
Any suggestions? I'm really upset with my phone right now. Especially with the keyboard. I've tried battery resetting it, etc.
Oh---and if I need to update---how can I when I can't get Kies to work, so I can back up my phone???
