    I'm not sure if this is unique to my Galaxy or an Android issue, but I'm having a hard time understanding how to use it correctly. Often I will speak a sentence into the phone; it types it out correctly, but when I hit a period or the spacebar the whole text disappears. Why would it do that?

    When you use voice recognition, I believe all the text is highlighted by default in case it got it wrong. You will need to tap at the end of the text to deselect it before adding to it.

    Thanks. I should have realized that's why the text was underlined.

    Also, when you finish speaking the sentance, if you say "period", it should put the period in there for you.
