    Excellent article. Consise, accurate and best of all this method worked for me on my Galaxy SII from Virgin Mobile.

    Tried the Android keyboard for a couple of days, but like Swype Beta so much better. Lazy I guess.

    Thank you so much! I just got a new HTC phone with Android 4.0 which of course comes with Sense and its own keyboard… I like Sense, but I am not crazy about HTC’s keyboard. This was exactly what I was looking for!

    Thank you! Day 2 from a Nexus S to the GS3 and I was about to fling an otherwise beautiful phone into a brick wall because of the awful Samsung keyboard!

    Ahhh, much better, thanks

    @Piper, I totally disagree about the iPhone bit. I’m a convert from the iPhone to the S3 and let me tell you, I could mash out perfect sentences at twice the speed as I can on the Galaxy. It corrects to words that are so dissimilar its not funny, and to top it off, if it doesn’t figure out a word, it makes up a gibberish word that will then auto correct every time you type that combination of words. I have to clean my dictionary out Twice a day to get rid of words like theb (Then) and hahs (haha).

    Keyboard installs but the spell check function does not work on my at&t s3

    Thank you for this! Reminds me of the keyboard that I used on my Samsung Fascinate. The keyboard for the Samsung S3 is so bad, especially the text prediction. It’s way too much like an iPhone. No wonder they have so many autocorrect issues, right?

    Works great. Instructions were good. This is my first Android (Galaxy S3) and the typing was horrible but now it is much much better. Thanks for posting this.

    Success! It’s been an annoying few days with the Samsung keyboard having switched to the Galaxy SIII from the Nexus S, but I’m happy to have the Android keyboard back!
