    SwiftKey will fix that issue with the keyboard lagging. I for one hate the stock keyboard. With my fast typing, the stock keyboard can't keep up with me. SwiftKey is awesome. No keyboard lag and it has a great prediction words.

    The other issue with the phone running laggy. See what apps are running in your task manager or better yet clear your memory in the task manager. If that doesn't work, hate to say it but do a factory reset on the phone. If it's still running laggy call Verizon and have them replace your phone.

    I'm glad you received the update, but I want to make sure your phone is running in tip-top shape! For your keyboard, please clear cache from the keyboard by going to Settings, Apps, All. Keyboard will be listed normally under keyboard or multi-touch keyboard. For the whole phone running slow, I would follow the previous commenter's suggestion in checking to see what applications are running and closing the ones you don't need. You can also try booting into safe mode Safe Mode - Samsung Galaxy S® III to see if the phone is still running slow in safe mode. If it is running better in safe mode, a 3rd party app may be conflicting with the software. If still no change in safe mode, I suggest a factory reset.

    I hope that helps!

    If the lag issue is with your keyboard only (e.g.: swype keyboard) then try clearing the keyboard data:
    Home Screen>Menu Button>Settings Menu>Application Manager>Select the "All" Tab>Swype>Clear Data button>OK

    You will have to go through the Swype introduction screens again the first time you use it again, but after that - boom! keyboard loads immediately - no more annoying lags.

    My assumption is that the customizations stored in the Swype data file get a little too long and it starts taking longer and longer to load.
