    I tried both the swype and samsung keyboards and I tried entering "wampa" via swype on both of them and the keyboards would not accept it and kept changing it to something else. How do you instruct the keyboard to leave a word alone?

    The stock Samsung keyboard will NOT change your words. It does not have auto correction.

    Swype does have auto correction. Make sure that you have "Samsung keyboard" selected in your Language and Input settings.

    Also, if you are swyping "Wampa", since it's not a word in the dictionary, it will think it's something else. Type the word with the Samsung Keyboard instead of trying to swype it.

    I had something similar with my last name, but I think it learns new words. After putting it in a few times, it's now recognized as a word and is suggested after the first few letters.

    Get the Jelly Bean Keyboard out of the Play Store. Works just like the iphone and auto corrects when you are typing.

  5. What? He said he didn't want auto correct, why would he actively search it out?

    It works like the iphone and auto corrects correctly. It is worth a try.

    If you're swiping, it will predict what you have swiped. If you want to add wampa in Swype, simply type the word in followed by a space bar. Then you should be able to swipe it using v Swype. =)

    Happy New Year!!!

    I just clicked in a text field, pulled down the notification shade, clicked on choose input method and it was set to Samsung keyboard and it was changing my text after I swyped. I switch from the choose input method the swype keyboard and it definitely was different, so I was using the Samsung one and it was changing my text.

    That's really strange. From every where I read, one of the short coming of Samsung Keyboard on the Note II is that it does NOT auto correct! :p In fact that was one of the reasons I switched to Swiftkey Flow Beta. Which version of the Note II do you have? Maybe you got the new software version update and it has auto correct.

    EDIT: Nevermind! I just reread your original post. You were using swype method. You cannot turn off auto correct in swype. It always try to predict what you are swyping. I suggest when you want to use some special words, just type them out?

    Well I see that Swype has a Personal Dictionary. I kept trying and trying to see if I could get "wampa" in there, but I cannot. I tried typing the word out a few times, but it doesn't seem to want to add it to the dictionary.

    But if you switched to use Swiftkey Flow Beta, it works! I just have to type it in one time and it remembers it next time when I try to "flow" it. You really owe me big time because now I have this word "wampa" in my personal dictionary! LOL :p

    Just swiped wampa on Swype. In fact I've swiped this entire post with Swype. =) if the spacebar would not enter your word you typed in, just type the word again and select it from the list of words above, it should be the one with orange font. =)

    Happy New Year!!!

    That's strange. I couldn't get it to appear in the list at all. There are like 10 words on top and none of them is wampa. Oh well, I don't use Samsung keyboard anymore.

    I was talking about Swype, not the stock keyboard. =)

    I like flext9 keyboard better than swype fwiw. I think it's only on the Amazon app store, but it's been my favorite keyboard for a few years now. Seems the prediction and overall usage is better than swype, at least for me.
