Sister just updated her 2Deg phone, now she is complaining of predictive text not being as it was before the update. Comparing her phone with mine we do have different options under predictive text, hers with no option to auto correct words, any ideas where its gone for her? All I have is the screenshot sent, not the phone.

I got the 2Degrees update as soon as it was released. A couple of days later I am still getting random reboots, phone locking up in the middle of calls, jerkiness on swipe, lags... and am ready to throw this piece of rubbish at a wall. 

4.1.2 might have brought improvements but since I have a largely-unusuable phone I can't really tell. Today, it took 4 minutes to turn on. I expect a sudden death anytime now :-(

In that case I would return it to place of purchase with proof of purchase and get it sent away to the Samsung service agent

I like it! The predictive is fantastic!!! It seems to be looking at the word/s just typed and helping use that to predict what your next word will be - most of the time I only need to 1 letter to have the correct word there... or even none sometimes!!!

I do have SwiftKey installed, but have never used it.

I've just checked the running apps to make sure that it didn't start running when I upgraded to 4.1.2

I am however using Handcent SMS, so that might be the point of difference here.

Ok, but why does it not auto correct if you type words wrong, for example on my phone if i type the letters "worls" and keep typing after that, it selects "world" and autocorrects, yet hers does not? it highlights "world" above the keyboard in the predictive area yet unless you actually touch it, it leaves it as "worls"  not a great improvement?

 @kiwitrc yeah, both stock samsung keyboard.

I think it's time she did a factory reset. Make sure all her contacts are on her gmail account. (NOT the 'phone' account, or she'll loose them).

But before that, maybe go into the properties for each keyboard app and wipe it's data individually. Maybe that's all it needs.
