  1. My Galaxy S3 worked just fine until the last software update, on the second week of February 2014. After the update, i lousy all my personal settings, my frequently used words library, and the ability for "i" to auto-capitalize. Before, when typing an "i" and then hitting the spacebar, it would automatically capitalize. After the latest update, it will no longer capitalize. i have to manually press the up-arrow shift key.
    How can i get the "i" to auto-cap again?

    1. Hi Mike D.,
      Thanks for coming.
      AFAIK, auto capitalization only capitalize the first letter of sentence, not the first letter of a word in the middle of sentence. To get the "i" auto-cap again, try to enable Predictive text in the Samsung keyboard settings. You can do so by tapping the Settings icon in the on-screen keyboard then enable "Predictive text".
      Hope it helps :)

    2. I found the same thing. In the setting I turned on auto correct and now it will correct I for me :) if you don't like the correction it's supplied you just hit the backspace once and it will put it back to how you spelt the word originally :)

  2. 2018 and I'm STILL learning how to operate this thing! (BTW, thanks for a clear and concise tutorial!) I'm sure I left my quill, parchment and messenger pigeon around here somewhere...
