so I had my phone for about a month and a half before the update..I had my text set to regular phone keyboard...with the (ABC) options because I hate xt9...Now when I go search the web it is still (ABC) like I want but everytime I open my messages is swaps back to xt9..If I move over to put in a smiley and come back its xt9 again!!! I have messed around with my settings 100 times and now im plum aggravated!
Have you tried to do a factory reset to clear out any settings after the update? This should help clear out all old/outdated software information and further prevent any errors on your device. Hope this helps.
