Samsung Galaxy S II :: Cannot Add Apostrophe To Any Words?
Oct 7, 2012
The entire time I've owned my S2 it has had a strange problem of not adding an apostrophe to any words, such as "don't" or "wouldn't". The only other galaxy I can check the message settings against is an S3 but everything is set up the same so is this just an S2 issue or am I missing something? It is highly annoying and even saving the correct words into the dictionary doesn't work.
Is there a way to remove the anoying apostrophes that gets automatically inserted by my BB when i type one letter in a txt msg followed by a space? Lets say i type:I would like to see a sample 1 please What will actually be displayed is:I'would like to see a'sample 1'please Here has to be a way to remove this!
Whenever I type a word with an apostrophe (I'll, we'll, Don't etc) the regular on board keyboard corrects it to something like I'I'll we'we'll and don'don't every time. I have, when I've noticed the suggestion appear, attempted to delete these words from the user dictionary but they keep coming back. I can't even find access to the entire user dictionary to delete there, just the suggestion bar.
It's very annoying as I keep getting doubled words when typing fast. It's only happening on apostrophe words and I never "taught" those words to my phone.
It's like it is trying to correct by replacing the correct word's last letter with the entire word.
I can't find an option to add words to my personal dictionary. When I tap an underlined word, it just shows more word options. I've even gone to language and input in the settings tab; the option isn't available there either.
When the last word in a sentence has a bubble around it (meaning I can make that word an emoji), my phone will put it there twice. Only if the word can be an emoji and it has a period after. For example, I just typed a sentence and the last word was "soon." I typed out "soon." And my phone sort of auto corrected it to "soon soon." NO matter how many times I tried deleting the second word, every time I put a period, if would add the word again.
Whenever I write a text message, the predictive process always suggests learned words as I begin typing a word. In my case, it is suggesting every e-mail address that my gmail has ever received an e-mail from, that has been CC'd on an e-mail I have received, or that I have sent an e-mail to.
I am looking for a way to clear ALL learned words in one shot. I know I can do it one at a time when the learned word appears, but that will take forever. There should be a way to clear all of the learned words out of my Samsung S6 Edge plus. Further, not all of the learned words even clear when I clear them individually.
Since the last update (August 2015), whenever I type some letters letters (one, sometimes 2) from the beginning of the word disappear before I can finish typing the word. This causes autocomplete to think I'm typing a completely different word.
E.g., I tried to type "think" - the "t" disappeared by the time I had gotten to the "i"(despite it initially appearing initially), making the phone think that the word is starting with "h", and leading to issues when I press space (despite typing think perfectly, the phone autocorrected to the nearest matching word starting with H as "h" was now the beginning letter)
This has only been an issue since updating my phone this week. I thought it might have been the swipe function messing up, but turning that off, it's still causing me issues when I type normally.
Recently I moved from Windows Phone to Android and I cannot find a feature which I get as for granted in Windows Phone. A very simple feature - mispelled words to be redlined in Default Samsung Galaxy S6 email app, called simple "email". If I type anywhere else, I can see redline if I have mispelled word, but in email I cannot.
When I type an email, sometimes it substitutes two or three letters for an email address, or a name of a contact of mine..I don't have any of this set up in shortcuts etc...it's as if those two letters are telling the device to substitute for a contact.
I unplugged my phone from my computer (it was connected as a media device), and now I am have words scrolled along the right side of my screen and the edges of my phone blink red when I select something. What this issue is and how to fix it?
Just updated via Samsung Apps the camera firmware to a CDE11 or something version. Took 4 minutes to update and flash this firmware. I wonder what exactly it changed in the camera firmware? Hopefully improved things or bug fixes.I will test a few videos and see if the bitrate has changed or not.
I bought a nexus yesterday and have been unable to register it with the American samsung site (no options for us canadians there) not to mention the fact that after typing in my serial the site says my handset was manufactured 1/31/1993!
On the canadian site which i have all my other samsung products registered, there is no listing for my model number (GT-I9250TSDTLS (this is whats on the box, phone menu just lists my model as Samsung Galaxy Nexus, though the label under that battery shows GT-I9250M as the model number..how am I supposed to register my phone?[URL]..shows that galaxy owners can get a free copy of angry birds space... how do I get that?
Word on the street is that there may be a refreshed Samsung Galaxy Nexus coming. I wasrReading over at Android and Me and this thread caught my attention:The rumors state that there is going to be a refreshed camera. Possibly along the way of 8.0MP. On top of that, the processors are scheduled to be refreshed using The faster SGX544 GPU is included with Texas Instruments upcoming OMAP4470 processor. This is the successor to the original OMAP4460 found in the Galaxy Nexus, that includes the older SGX540 GPU.With the Sprint version of the Galaxy Nexus coming soon we'll have to wait and see if they are in fact getting a refreshed model or the LTE based model that Verizon has currently, Either way, I hope they do launch a refresh on the HSPA+ line as well. I use the Galaxy Nexus and while I love the phone, I wish the camera was better. Faster is always better as well so I'll take the processor bump.
I was thinking of buying the s2x telus version from craigslist. I was wondering if someone who bought the phone from telus sells me this phone, would I be able to enjoy the 1 year manufacturer warranty? I understand that the warranty starts when the phone is first bought. I'm just wondering if that warranty will be transferred to me under these scenerios?
1. If the seller had bought the phone from telus outright. a. If the seller has kept the original receipt and gives it to me. b. If the seller has lost the original receipt and does not provide me with it.
2. If the seller had bought the phone as an upgrade. a. if the seller has kept the original receipt and gives it to me. b. If the seller has lost the original receipt and does not provide me with it.
In case I do get to enjoy the warranty, will I be taking my phone to a telus store if it needs repair or will I send the phone directly to the manufacturer? I don't plan to use the phone with the telus network after I purchase it.
I just purchase my sg2 phone yesterday. Unfortunately, my brother has used my phone last night and register the Samsung account in it by using his email or id. When I tried to change the account, it cannot be done cause I have to do the factory reset in privacy setting (which will erase all my personal info and downloaded applications). I don't want that to happen as well. Plus, my my brother can't even remember what the password he has used for the Samsung account I'm very pissed off now that my Samsung account belong to him and the fact that I can't do the factory reset because of him. I'll mention again, he forgot the password he used for MY SAMSUNG ACCOUNT IN MY SG2.
I can browse the Internet no problems however, instead of seeing say an article there are no words. All I can see is a blank space where the words should be. I can't even do a google search properly. It will let me click on the articles and it will open them up but nothing inside. Pictures show but no words!
I've noticed it a couple of weeks ago that the words are not being separated when I text, email, or bbm. Today is unbearable as I have to press the space key several times in between words - not every time but most of the time. I keep my phone well protected and, no, I'm not using it a coffee coaster.
When I am talking using voice input I keep getting cut off after a few words. I have to keep repeating myself picking up where it cuts out. Not useable like this. It happens no matter which application I am in and no matter which keyboard I have active. This never happens on the Note3.
So i remember that i once entered the dictionary of all word suggestions and all other words i wrote but now i dont know where they are... Ive been searching for 30 minutes but i always end up going to personal dictionary where there are no words.
How to remove auto corrected words? I've already tried looking in personal dictionary but found nothing.
I attached a pic below.
I have tried to hold down the proper word and the auto correct version and can't get rid if it. Maybe the corrected version is hiding somewhere else other than dictionary? Obviously I don't want to use caps in "have" all the time. I don't even remember saving it as so.
I've been using Swype for a while now, and I've never really had any problem with it lagging or missing words, but on my m8 it does. I have it on my nexus 7 tablet and it doesn't happen there, so I know it's not just me.
If I'm swyping quickly, it'll take so long to process one word, that by the time it's ready again I've already swyped a second word that gets missed and it goes straight to the third word.
I have a BlackBerry Torch 9800 and recently I've been having a problem with words on the browser screen not showing up. I haven't changed any settings or downloaded any programs that I can think of which would have caused the problem. It mostly effects words that have a hyperlink, but some pages don't have any type showing at all.
