Default Keyboard changed on it's own...

I woke up this morning and started replying to a message that I got overnight and realized that for no reason at all my keyboard had changed itself to the swype keyboard that's built it to the S3. Has anybody had this happen before? I'm on Verizon and usually I use a keyboard from the play store called Jellybean 4.2 keyboard

And now 5 hours later it also did it again. I switched it to my downloaded keyboard, and then I did a few things, went to breakfast and when it was time to reply to another message there it was again...the swype keyboard keeps making itself the default keyboard...what the floop?

Happens to me every time I restart my phone. Known bug without a fix as far as I know. Very irritating.

Happens to me all the time, swiftkey being replaced by stock. Luckily for me I don't mind stock. It is slightly annoying though.

Mine does this too. Until it gets sorted out, you could use this app. It saves a few steps in getting your keyboard back, I love it.

My Verizon s3 also has strange keyboard issues. After a reboot the keyboard takes a ridiculous amount of time to launch when first launched. After that it works fine.
