    GS3: Samsung Default Keyboard Problem

    I updated to the 4.1.2 update over the air update for my cricket wireless galaxy s3 ( back during the $320 discount) and received a keyboard problem. My biggest sticking point now is that the default Samsung keyboard does not work for me. When I select that keyboard, any attempts to type by swiping show the line following my finger movement across the keys, but no text appears. I can type by tapping. I do have T9 Trace selected in the keyboard settings. I also have Swype Beta 1.3 installed and working properly, so I'm fine with using that keyboard, but I would like to figure out what settings I'm missing in the default keyboard. I tried uninstalling Swype and restoring with no improvement. Has anyone else experienced this? DO you need any additional information or have any suggestions?

    * this question has been asked before and I'm aware of that but it received no answers. I'm really eager to get this problem fixed.

    additional problems:
    can't use web/3g/ Wi-Fi during a phone call ( shows up as no internet connection but an connected to internet)

    *UPDATE
    Problem Fixed, actually all problems were fixed. I'm assuming Cricket GS3's had a super buggy update in 4.2.1 (i think it waas that) but since 4.2.2 just came out, i backed up all my content, factory reset and updated. All problems solved
    Solution: Update when you can and i guess do a factory restore before updating

    Same thing happened to me. The swiping did not work and neither did the autocorrect. I deleted the Samsung keyboard, and downloaded another Samsung keyboard from some other board and I ended up soft bricking my phone. So I came to this site and flashed to jb stock and the 4.1.2 Samsung keyboard worked with swiping and autocorrect. I am not sure if they altered the jb stock on this site or if there is a difference in OTA to using kies for the upgrade. My problem is my incall volume is low

    I'm not sure what i should do now. Have a problem with incall volume or messed up swipe on my Samsung Keyboard. I'm not familiar with flashing or rooting anything. I want to try any safe methods but I don't want my GS3 to mess up since it was expenisve.
