    This is all new to me (I've been using an iPhone on TMobile for a few years) and isn't intuitive for me. Knowing how to download apps was really, really helpful. THANKS<

    You can't do that unless you root your phone.

    When typing in my S2 or Nexus tablet, the autocorrect feature automatically enters the correct spelling when I touch the the space bar or enter a period. My S4 won't correct misspellings unless I choose one of the corrected options. Anyone know how to get the S4 to correct like earlier modrks.?
