Reverts to default keyboard at reboot / restart
After I updated my device to Jelly Bean, Swiftkey keeps returning to android default keyboard after restart or shutdown. I uninstalled the keyboard and re-installed it but nothing happened. Everytime the phone loads the OS i go to setting and configure again Swiftkey
I set SwiftKey as default keyboard; it changes back to the default Android keyboard upon a reboot of the phone.
This has been ongoing from some time now. Any chance of it getting fixed?
Be able to select swift key as a default keyboard. So when you turn your phone on it is already selected
I set my default keyboard to SwiftKey but it won't stay when I reboot or shutdown, it revert to samsung keyboard
Keyboard resets to default android keyboard every time I reboot my Samsung Galaxy S3. Using latest AT&T update, I was using Beta version of SwiftKey and uninstalled prior to upgrading SwiftKey.
This is really annoying because every time I turn off the phone and turn it back on my SwiftKey is not appearing it wasn't a problem before but now is a constant.
Every time I turn on my phone after jellybeans update, the phone reverts back to stock keyboard instead of SwiftKey on galaxy S3
After updating to JB, SwiftKey lost the ability to remain the default keyboard upon system restart.
Give us a default option.
Whenever my phone gets turned off it automatically resets back to a different keyboard options.
Is there a way to make SwiftKey my default keyboard?

Each time restart the phone or turn on, the keyboard back to the deafult of samsung in my Galaxy S3. I'm using Android 4.1.1 official (Brazil), whitout any modification.
Already been done factory reset in the phone and reinstalled swiftkey but the problem continues.
I have Galaxy Note 2. Because auto correction does not work I use the SwiftKey keyboard that I've purchased, however with every reboot keyboard switches back to stock!
Every time I reboot my s3 running jb 4.1.1 the keyboard reverts to the stock Samsung keyboard. Why does it not keep SwiftKey?
Every time I reboot my SGS3 running JB, the phone defaults to the stock keyboard meaning I have to manually select it in the settings.
Getting a little tedious now.
Every time my phone is powered off my keyboard setting are switched back to default instead of swiftkey, Which causes me to go back to my phone settings and switch it back to how it was before my phone powered off

We have contacted Samsung regarding this problem – they acknowledged the issue and have checked that it does not occur in their latest update. They intend to roll out Android 4.2.2 to Galaxy S3 users in the near future (unfortunately we don’t have an exact date), at which point the problem should be fixed.
Explanation of the issue:
We are aware of the issue where your phone reverts to the stock keyboard on reboot and we appreciate that it is very annoying.
We are currently in contact with Google Play to see if there is anything that they can do to fix this.
The issue is that Google Play installs paid apps in a particular location on your phone and that in some versions of Android (particularly 4.1 on Samsung devices) this location is not available at the point in the boot process where keyboards are being switched on. So your phone does not know that you have SwiftKey, and it defaults back to the phone’s keyboard.
We are unable to control where Google Play installs the app, and also unable to do anything about the way in which your phone boots up, so we are essentially powerless.
You can read more about the issue here http://code.google.com/p/android/issues/detail?id=34880 – the issue is listed as “released”, which means that it has been fixed in the code and the fixed version has been released, but we know that it can take months for a new version of Android to reach customers’ phones, which is why we are trying to see if Google Play can do something about it in the shorter term.
Free apps will not be affected, and of course with most apps you just tap them to turn them on once your phone is already fully booted, so it is only with paid apps that offer services like keyboards or widgets that this problem is visible.
If you have not yet used SwiftKey Trial you can download it here https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.touchtype.swiftkey.phone.trial – it will work for a month, and hopefully by the time that month is over the issue will be resolved. (you can only use SwiftKey Trial one time on each phone – if your phone has tried SwiftKey Trial before then the trial will show up as “expired” immediately and will not work – sorry).
Again, we appreciate that this is not ideal, but we are doing the best that we can to get SwiftKey working for you.
Actually i found a solution that worked for me, i downloaded latest apk version from Internet for now its 184.108.40.206 version and reinstalled it. I think it's not a big deal as i bought keyboard and have apk downloaded.And it's set by default after reboot
Same problem on AT&T Galaxy Note. Very annoying.
Change your keyboard to use a license file and you wont have this problem with your keyboard package. It's already been widely reported that the update doesn't work for most, and also doesn't address the fact that most of us will never see the update get issued by our carriers.
I have a Samsung Galaxy S2, which was just updated to Jelly Bean 4.1.
SwiftKey was laggy after the Jelly Bean update, but only started to reset to default keyboard after the latest SwiftKey update.

I also am experiencing this problem. Asus Nexus 7 - 4.2.2
When looking at Sarah Reynolds post, I can see a post date of 4/8/13, but I have no idea if that is the date for the full body of the post or for the "update" that she edited in afterwards. I am interested to know when that update section was added, as we all just received an update 4.1.2 without the fix and who knows when we will receive 4.2.
Recommendation: when updating a post, please add the revision date to the body of the post.

I too have the GS3 and experience this issue. I just recently got a software update. Android Version 4.1.2, baseband version t999uvdmd5, kernel version 3.0.31-1128078, build number jz054k.t999uvdmd5

This is ridiculous. There are multiple online threads about this since 2012 and there should be a fix by now...
Chad Bordes commented
Its funny because this doesn't happen on the verizon GS3 running 4.1.2? Why is that?
This keeps happening to my S3 and I do have the latest updates. Using A.I Keyboard paid version. Good keyboard but frustrating when you keeps reverting back to stock..aaarggg

I have the same problem on my HTC Desire with Cyanogenmod 7. Will be asking for a refund if there is no fix available :-(

Eventually problem solved but not by Swiftkey.!!!! Tried to get a Software update for my Samsung Galaxy s3 mini with Samsung. It was possible from Samsung but It needed 3gb of space to complete the update. Had to wait for my provider to give me an automatic soft update. This was completed last week and part of that update was the Android Version going from 4.1.1 to 4.1.2. Now I have no problem with Swiftkey. So guys check your Android Version and see if you can move to 4.1.2. Good luck!
Have the same problem with HTC One X. I suggest you also post a solution to ppl with rooted phones. It's a bummer to go through 700+ comments to find it.

Make a free version available in the Play Store for users with this problem. Like the app itself is free, but we have to confirm that we've already paid before we are allowed full access.

there's another thread that says it's a samsung specific issue which they won't fix till they feel like updating. I advise against breath holding.
one more reason non standard android sucks. i may have to root and cyanogen after all.
Bom Bastinator commented
"dave" seems to be trying a phishing scam. not thdot after goo
There IS something swiftkey can do about it. They choose not to.
Happens on my HTC One S as well. So annoying. But appreciate that there isn't much swiftkey can do about it

Seriously...why are we (paid users) still dealing with this annoying issue that is approaching a year old??
