Default Paging Dr. Swype

I test drove this phone at Sprint yesterday. Love the form factor, screen, and speed...like the Hero's second cousin with added Froyo muscle. Swype is not included eventhough the T-Mobile Optimus T has it. How can we get the file installed? Also wonder whether LG makes syncing software (for Outlook, PC version)?

The only way is to join the Swype beta. Unfortunately it's closed at the moment, but you can sign up to be notified when it reopens/goes on sale.

How do you know this? And how do you know it has an update coming? Does it fix the SD card issue?

Nevermind, I found it. Still nothing about the SD card though.

You should be able to fix the SD card issue by formatting the SD card on a PC and then putting it back in the phone.
