    I have the Note 2 from T-Mobile. I love the swipe method of input on the default Samsung keyboard. However, I discovered a strange thing about it over the weekend.

    No matter how carefully I swipe, the default keyboard will not recognize the word "Jesus". It doesn't even give it to me as one of the 8 choices it offers. If I switch to the official Swype keyboard, it recognizes it, no problem.

    Does anyone else have this issue? How can I teach the Samsung keyboard to recognize the word "Jesus"?

    Thanks!

    It only recognizes the word and will come up again AFTER you've manually input it the first time. Restart the phone and you're right back at square one (I tried it for the purpose of replying to you since Jesus has never been swiped on my phone).
    Reasons for it's exclusion would be purely speculative.

    Hmm, is that to say that the Samsung keyboard loses its dictionary on restart?

    I liked the Swype keyboard at first but it doesn't autospace or auto capitalize or anything in the web browser which is a real bummer so I've been using the Sammy keyboard.

    My Samsung keyboard doesn't delete it's dictionary on restart... Though it does like to randomly capitalize words in the middle of a sentence and that's obnoxious.
