Default Voice Input for text messages?

Hi all,

Just trying to find my way around this fantastic phone. I am not new to Android and have come straight from a HTC DHD.

On my other phone, when typing a text message, there was a microphone button which would allow you to speak and the voice recognition would attempt to write what your saying.

I cannot see this anywhere on this phone? There is an option in the keyboard settings to enable Voice Input which describes what I mean, but its enabled and still cannot see the button?

What keyboard are you using? The stock one kinda sucks, but it's as simple as going into the settings>language & input>gear symbol for samsung keyboard>CLICK VOICE INPUT

On my T-Mobile branded S3 the Microphone Key for voice input is between the 123 and the Space Key.

Default I figured it out

On my US cellular S3 the character button between the symbol button and space key was a settings button. I held it down and 3 buttons appeared mic, clipboard and settings. Select the mic and you should be good. Hope this helps some people because it was making me nuts!
