S6 update mishaps

After the update, I no longer get the flashing blue notice light flashing and in the texting mode, I have a "comma" left and right of the space bar of the keypad. I must now switch to the character page and use it from there. Very time comsuming.

 Hello @USMC_Sgt,

 

Updates can bring plenty of changes and improvements. There can be some adjustments to how some features work with the phone as well. I will be happy to help you with your LED Notifications and Keyboard!

 

For your keyboard, there have been some changes to it as well. If you prefer to use a different keyboard, you can change it by having it displaying on your screen, swipe down from the top and you will see an option for “Change Keyboard” You can now switch to your preferred keyboard.

 

The LED Notifications are going to display while sound is on, if you are still not showing the blue light when you have a notification, you can check in Settings > Display > LED Indicator. Hopefully the LED not showing while on silent will be addressed in a future update. You can make sure your device is constantly up-to-date on our Device Support Page by selecting Software Update after choosing your device.

 

I hope this information helps! Let me know if there is anything else I could help with!

Hi Brett,
Thanks for getting back to me so soon. The keyboard swiping did not work, whether in the vertical or horizontal mode. If I go to settings and select keyboard options, only the Samsung is allowed. Any other suggestions?

@USMC_SgtThis tutorial covers a lot, including how to swap keyboards, and shows several options for the non-Samsung variety (I happen to like Swiftkey myself, but consider the Google-stock keyboard to be pretty good too).
