    Does anyone know how to enable spell checker on S3 when I type my emails? no, not predictive text, just a simple underline and then I tap on the word and see possible options? I send 2 hours on the phone with ATT and with Samsung and they claim it cannot be done. As far as i know, it's a standard feature of the ICS.

    ...just use SwiftKey 3, and call it a day. Seriously, you will not be disappointed. It learns as you type :)

    I 100% agree. I tried the stock keyboard and had to go back to swift key.

    New galaxy owner here and new to the forums! Quick question.. Is the swiftkey app a replacement for the messaging app? Or just a different keyboard. Of course I haven't downloaded yet so I don't know. But I'll give it a shot when I've got a moment. I've gotten so used to my Iphone doing this for me this is quite a change.!

    edit : just downloaded Swiftkey 3. This is just what I needed..!

    SwiftKey 3 is an alternative keyboard app. Very good too.

    Have you found a solution to this? Unfortunately all the threads about this issue are hijacked by the freaking Swiftkey enthusiasts... I'm desperate to find a way to turn on the spell checker!

    I know this isnt a solution sorry but if anyones into flashing custom roms, the aosp ones have spellcheck. I dont think its something a keyboard app can perform tbh.
    At first i hated it but now i like it. The suggestions can be pretty crap though.
    Its part of stock android and i dont understand why samsung didnt at least make it an option :thinking:
