    When you misspell a word and hit the space bar it should auto correct the word for you to the most logical choice. I saw someone mention there may be no auto correct on the Note 2.

    Hoping this isn't true as it would be a major inconvenience. I have JB on my Galaxy Nexus and it is still there. Can someone verify this on the note 2? Any other nice features missing from texting or the keyboard?

    Thanks!

    Yea, the stock Samsung keyboard doesn't seem to auto correct for you, but you can always download a new keyboard from the play store. There are a couple free ones that are built on the stock JB keyboard.

    That's a bummer if that is the case.

    Lord help me and the people that receive my messages...

    You can always download another keyboard from the Play store.

    With Android, you have options for just-about anything! :)

    No auto correct is a killer for me. I just switched to swiftkey. Normally I wouldn't mind, but the stock keyboard does have a great layout. I would also like to be able to use the one handed operation.

    The only problem I have with swiftkey is it uses a lot of ram, maybe not a big deal on the note 2 but it was on my other phone.

    Yeah. I downloaded SwiftKey and it's great. Auto correct and the keyboard is awesome. I can type fast and it's probably 99% accurate. Every now and then it has an error but overall Def worth the download.

    yes, unfourtanely this phone has no auto-correct with the Samsung Keyboard, which kind of blows my mind, maybe they just forgot something in codeing, and they will fix it with an OTA update

    i really hope they fix this with an OTA update, how can you sell a top-notch smart phone built around taking notes and not include auto-correct. *mind blown*

    I'm using the Magic Keyboard Free app as my replacement keyboard. It's working pretty well, though it will take some getting used to and some settings tweaks (particularly with the way it corrects your words depending on how you space them) but the auto correct is working pretty well and I love how easy it is to get to numbers and symbols. I gave the default keyboard a shot, even using the swipe feature but I just can't use a touchscreen without autocorrect.

    I don't think this was accidentally left out. I believe the default Samsung keyboard is actually a stripped down version of SwiftKey. I base that on the fact that it seems to reference the new SwiftKey flow feature in the keyboard settings. I'm guessing that as part of the deal between SwiftKey and Samsung, SwiftKey did not give Samsung every feature that they offer in order to protect the potential sale of their own app on the device.

    This is a total guess on my part and I could be wrong.

    I gave the Samsung keyboard a few days to see if my typing would improve. It didn't so I downloaded one of the JB keyboards from the play market https://play.google.com/store/apps/...1bGwsMSwxLDYsImplbGx5YmVhbmtleWJvYXJkLmYuZyJd
    I'm back to zipping along again. It was nice to have the numbers on the keyboard, but I just couldn't type nearly as fast compared to the ICS keyboard I had on my Note1. The JB keyboard on the Note 2 works great.

    I don't have an "Android Keyboard" listed. Is that an app that you downloaded?

    Weird. Using the Tapatalk app, this link took me to a totally unrelated thread in Android Forums. Using the internet browser, it took me to the correct post.

    Hmmm. I may have to email them about this...

    Thanks ScandeLeX!

    Hi, I came here trying to find an autocorrect keyboard. This looks like we don't even have to be rooted for this. Unfortunately the note 2 is not mentioned in the article...... is it just an install of the latinImeGooglesigned file and we are good to go?

    Thx
