Unhappy Issue with Predictive Text & Samsung Keyboard

Hello,

I've had the S4 for about a month now and it was all working out great until Thursday... Not sure what happened there but I was very happy with the Samsung keyboard and the predictive text and all of a sudden all the words I type on a daily basis (names, etc...) that were not originally in the dictionary simply disappeared...

I haven't installed any other keyboard app and I don't believe I downloaded or deleted an app around the time that happened.
Even right now it still does not remember the text I type in anymore (or just for a couple minutes sometimes).

Predictive text is still set to "ON" and I haven't changed the language or anything...

Any help appreciated. Thx!

Bump. Mine is getting progressively more ******ed. Replacing normal words with ridiculous alternatives.

I tried to delete all the learned words I knew it was messing up and then re adding them by typing them and then selecting them from the suggested words bar but that didn't work either.


PLEASE HELP

Best free suggestion: Google Keyboard
Best paid suggestion: Swiftkey

Samsungs keyboards are not so great imo.

Good luck

Just downloaded the Google keyboard. It's much better in terms of the autocorrect problem but it's ugly as hell and not as functional as the gs4 keyboard (e.g. the Samsung keyboard has the numbers always at the top of the keyboard, no need to press shift.
SAMSUNG KEYBOARD FIX PLEASE

Just use the Kii keyboard app. Free and does what you want.

Default omg me too

This started happening with my keyboard (Samsung) in July. Just stopped recognizing my kids names, regular words I use every day and stopped remembering my email which was my favorite thing. My email is miamivirgo.....as soon as I'd hit the "v" my whole email would pop up. Now all that pops up is nonsense words such as Miami veggie blah blah. Went from smart ass keyboard to duh

I posted about this a few months ago. Never got any good info on it. I just switched to the Swype keyboard, which is better... but I miss the layout on the Samsung one. Seems some update happened and destroyed its functionality.

I saw someone else posted this in another thread so I thought I would share... since it worked for me.

The user wrote:

Hi I don't know if you figured it out yet but I was having the same issue. I like my Samsung keyboard but it wasn't saving words. Just reset it. Go into settings, language input, click the settings cog by Samsung keyboard and down at the bottom is a reset. Click that and it will start to save your words again. Hope this helps.

hi,

I am having the same problem, this problem started like 4 to 5 days ago.

i have just contacted the Samsung Support, i supplied him with following query,

i am using GT-i9505, and having problem with Samsung Keyboard, Specially Personalized Text, don't remember words,

he did his best resolving the issue, by following steps, (performed through Samsung Tutor) must have the predictive text option on, through Language and input settings, also the Personalized text must be active.

1. he go to settings, More>Application Manager>(Tab) All> selected Messages> and cleared the data by clicking on Clear Data,
2. Clicked on "More" button, (left touch key beside Home Button") and selected Clear App Preferences.
3. asked me to restart the phone, by shutting down and Removing the battery.
4. restarted, tested, worked.

but as soon as he left, again doomed i tried the word "Asalam o Alaikum" he told me you will have to retype and save the words again, so, at first it was working, i would only write "asa" a suggestion will appear as Asalam, i press o then Alaikum would automatically appear.

but its not working again.

i suppose i need to reset the phone, but i think it can be worked out as,

Settings>application Manager>all (Tab) select Samsung Keyboard> clear Data, (mine was 49 mb) think its working for me as of now.

Settings>Application Manager> All(Tab)>Samsung Keyboard>Clear Data> Restart Phone (by shutting down> removing battery, inserting battery, Power on)

But please note, you will have to resave all personalized data, other settings should be to your convenience,
Mine are,
Settings,>More(Tab)>language and input>Keyboard Samsung>
Language >English US
Predictive Text >on
Auto replacement> off
Auto Capitalization> on
Auto Spacing> on
Auto Punctuate> on

Keyboard Swipe None
Sound>off
vibrate>off
Character Previw> on

The process suggested by sarathx4 worked for me (for now).

Steps I used...
1) Go to Settings/My Device/Language and input/Samsung keyboard (settings)
2) Turn off Predictive text
3) Restart Phone
4) Return to Samsung keyboard settings
5) Turn on Predictive text.

I would like to add that this was the most frustrating thing for me for the last week. Learned words (email addresses, usernames, etc.) just suddenly stopped working. I almost wanted to buy an iPhone (Grrrrr) just to spite 'em...whoever 'em are.

It would be nice if the Samsung keyboard actually used a database that could have words manually added to it.

My GS4 just started messing up when texting. I haven't changed anything or downloaded anything and when I picked up my phone to text it started typing different letters but only on landscape mode. When I text with my phone straight up it works fine. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
